the reigning king of dwarfsploitation cinema!
6 April 2004 | by EyeAskanceSee all my reviews

Heartwarming family entertainment about a mischief-making, wind-up toy loving dwarf and his retired stage-queen mother, working together to make ends meet by renting out rooms in their spacious home. To supplement their modest income, they randomly kidnap young girls and chain them up inside their filthy attic. An array of libertine gentlemen pay all-hours visits in order to utilize the captive girls in random wicked sexcapades, and they show their gratitude with cash donations(no, not to the girls...to the DWARF). In order to keep the fussy sex-slaves in line, our fun-loving "little person" injects them with daily doses of heroin. All is hunky-dory until an unsuspecting young couple rents a room in the house. Before long, complications ensue which pose a serious threat to the family business.

This insanely licentious softcore roughie, one of the most entertaining of its kind, is a timeless classic loved by bad-apples the world over. When is Disney going to remake this as an animated musical?

7.5/10
