Storyline

"Little Deaths" is composed by three segments with short stories of sex, violence, death and revenge in England. 1st segment: "House & Home" Richard Gull and his wife Victoria Gull claim that are good Samaritans and invite the starving homeless Sorrow to have a bath and dinner with them at home. However they spike the wine and when Sorrow wakes up, she is tied naked on a bed in the basement. Richard abuses of her and Victoria stays with Sorrow humiliating her while he has a shower. He hears a scream and when he arrives in the basement, he has a gruesome surprise. 2nd segment: "Mutant Tool" The former addicted prostitute Jen lives with her former pimp and drug dealer Frank, who also abducts persons to steal their kidneys to deliver to Dr. Reese. Jen gives her best efforts to stay clean and refuses to meet clients from the former "agency" where she worked. When Frank asks her to go to Dr. Reese, he gives some tablets for her. Jen has headaches and nightmares and she returns to Dr. Reese... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

all stories deliver on their own
20 June 2011 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

When I saw the DVD at the shop I never heard or seen any review of it. But reading what was written on the back I bought it and I must say, I didn't regret it. It's a combination of 3 short stories directed by the writer of "Summer's Blood" for example. And were Summer's Blood was low on anything these 3 stories really deliver on weirdness and gore. The first part is the bloodiest one. Part 1 and 2 couldn't really happen but still they deliver the horror you are waiting for. The directors never shade away to show it all, red stuff, blood, and a lot of nudity. The first story as I said is for me the best part, definitely not for the squeamish, the second story is all about experiments done by Nazis and the last part is something weird but the score is so great. All stories have something on their own, one to watch...
