Did You Know?


Most of the extras and supporting parts were played by non-professional actors that Andy Milligan met on the streets around Staten Island and recruited them to appear unpaid and uncredited. The two players who played the parts of the court potentates, dubbed Peter the Ear and Peter the Nose, were two brothers who owned a local hardware store and were rumored to have had Mafia connections.

Prepare ye to be savagely Milliganed.
7 June 2003 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Another of Andy Milligan's endearingly disjointed period-piece horror films...if you've been subjected to any of his other projects, then you pretty much know what's in store. If, however, you're among the uninitiated...well...there's honestly nothing that can possibly prepare you for that particular rite of passage.

As is the case with all things Milligan, TORTURE DUNGEON is entirely obstinate toward every orthodox countenance of filmmaking procedure. Contributing to its off-center allure is a creatively impetuous, Scheherazadian spiel of medieval treachery and lust for power. You just know that a movie's storyline has been slapped around by Andy Milligan when it incorporates gay hunchback love, one-eyed hags, stilted Olde English dialog, and gratuitous pitchfork gore. Plus, being the joke-of-all-trades that he was, Milligan also gave personal appointment to the wardrobe department, resulting in the film's unique visual flair which may be best described as polyacrylic Renfaire psychosis.
