Storyline

In New York's Soho district, the master of ceremonies Sardu runs the Theater of the Macabre, which specializes in acts where people are tortured and dismembered. The audiences dismiss it as fakery but the gore is real. Behind the scenes, Sardu and his dwarf assistant Ralphus torture and mutilate women for their own pleasure, as well as sell girls they have abducted into slavery. When the critic Creasy Silo contemptuously dismisses the show, Sardu has him abducted and tortured. At the same time, Sardu also abducts the ballerina Natasha Di Natalie and determines to break her will in order to make her agree to perform in his new show. Written by JohnWaters

The Funniest Film Ever!!!
15 June 1999 | by puss-2See all my reviews

A lot of people i know have been totally repulsed by this film. However, thinking this is a video nasty is missing the point completely. It's a COMEDY!!! And a very funny comedy too. The hilariously twisted sense of humour features classic scenes such as "The Caged Sexoids" (guess!)AND THE ALL-TIME SLAPSTICK CLASSIC SCENE Where a woman gets her brains sucked out!!! This is a comedic masterpiece and the best troma film by miles. Buy a couple of beers, insert into recorder at about three in the morning, and E.N.J.O.Y.!!!
