'House Of Flesh Mannequins' Movie Review

By Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

Watching Writer/Director Domiziano Cristopharo’s House Of Flesh Mannequins is like experiencing a lengthy nightmare from which you cannot wake – and I mean that in the best possible way.

As the viewer, we are left to wander through a dark and twisted dreamscape full of unforgettable, haunting imagery that could very well fit right in with Dante Alighieri’s masterful vision of hell Inferno.

One just cannot simply explain the plot of Hofm, it is a film that is best gone into knowing very little about, so that you may experience the full effect of wandering in the dark as this startling nightmare unfolds before your very eyes.

However, it should be said that this might not be the horror film for everyone – it is an experience that could be alienating to some due to its extreme nature, and it features explicit sexual acts and,

The House of Flesh Mannequins Gets a Video Release Date from Elite Entertainment

The Italian exploitation thriller, The House of Flesh Mannequins, will receive a worldwide DVD release February 21, 2012. This psychological drama by controversial director/writer Domiziano Cristopharo will be sure to be deeply disturbing because of the subject matter being explored.

This film features Sebastian Rhys (Domiziano Arcangeli, “Showtime’s Zalman King’s Chromium Blue”), a loner, whose life is about to change. As an artist and photographer, he habitually explores the seedy side of life and human depravity. When a fellow apartment tenant, Sarah Roeg (Irena A. Hoffman, Moonlight Sonata) takes an interest in his work, where this film goes is a look into a very torturous, surrealistic, and erotic world that also includes snuff films. Up and comer actors Dave Vescio (Lost Soul) and Jerred Berg also star.

This film premiered the Santa Fe Film Festival and was also screened at A Night of Horror International Film Festival. It has

DVD Releases: 'Metamorphosis'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ You're in trouble when a film champions Mr. Highlander himself, Christopher Lambert, as its 'star'. Metamorphosis (2007), by Hungarian director Jeno Hodi (responsible for such gems as Guns and Lipstick [1995]) and co-starring virtual unknowns Corey Sevier, Irena A. Hoffman, Jeniffer Higham and Charlie Hollway, is a straight-to-dvd release that is unlikely to last as long as the centuries-old bloodsucker at the centre of its story.

Exclusive: David Hillenbrand Takes Us on an Unrated Trip Through Transylmania

David Hillenbrand takes us on an unrated trip through Transylmania

Transylmania, the latest comedy outing from Dorm Daze creators David and Scott Hillenbrand, is finally making its long awaited DVD debut on April 27th. The film reunites the cast from National Lampoon's Dorm Daze franchise, and finds a motley crew of college students embarking on the wildest, sexiest, most outrageous semester abroad ever at famed Romanian cultural outpost Razvan University. Located deep in the heart of the "cursed land" of Transylvania in a centuries-old castle, Razvan isn't your typical institution of higher learning. And the black leather-clad professors, three-foot-tall dean, instruction in crucifix-wielding, and topless vampiresses lurking in dark corners are just the start in this laugh riot that ignites the screen with sexiness. We recently caught up with David to find out more about the film. Here's our conversation with Mr. Hillenbrand:

House Of Flesh Mannequins "offends" Festival-goers

  • Fangoria
House Of Flesh Mannequins
The art house/horror/fetish film House Of Flesh Mannequins was shown at the Santa Fe Film Festival on Thursday December 3 and Saturday December 5, and the film received very mixed reviews from the audience. In fact, according to the festival’s director, Karen RedHawk Dallett,, "over 1/3 of the film’s first audience actually walked out.” The film is very different than anything being shown in America: "It’s edgy and dark, almost like the remake of Cape Fear, but much more than that.”

According to the film’s producers, House "presents a compelling case against the use of gratuitous violence, on TV, as well as, the self-righteous, sanctimonious ways that society chooses to confront children’s issues.” The film is “gory, pornographic and outrageous.” To drive the point home, House, which uses international film stars (Dominziano Arcangeli, Irena A. Hoffman, Giovanni Lombardo, Radici, Randal Malone,) as well as underground porn actors and actual fetishists,
