Mini Bio (1)
Peter de Rome began making short erotic films in the '60s, basically for his own use and for the amusement of friends. When one of them, Hot Pants, won a first prize at the Amsterdam Wet Dream Film Festival, interest was aroused. Producer Jack Deveau put together a collection of de Rome's work, and with two additional segments (Underground, filmed in the New York subway, and a modern version of the legend of Prometheus) released The Erotic Films Of Peter De Rome in 1973. In 1974, de Rome made his first feature length film in Paris, entitled Adam & Yves, and two years later came the first attempt at gay horror, The Destroying Angel, loosely based on a story by Edgar Allan Poe, whom de Rome closely resembles. His autobiography, The Erotic World Of Peter De Rome, appeared in 1984.
