"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

While most horror anthologies have a central unifying theme, or at least, a concluding wrap-up, the three short episodes in this film are totally unrelated and unconnected. This is the novelty or perhaps the weakness of this film.
The first episode rocks, and Holly Lucas hit me like a tornado in this one. She was too pretty and sophisticated anyhow, to be playing the part of a homeless vagrant. With hardly any lines, she looked so vulnerable initially, when bound and raped.. so stunningly seductive when topless, with her ample, swinging assets, she herself mounted her captor, and so frightening, when she reverted to her true feral form at the end. Its her film all the way.
The second episode is dull, confusing, morbid and OTP. Useless to discuss it.
The third was a wicked tale of revenge by a mild guy on his overly aggressive and perverted girlfriend. Quite novel. LOL. But wholly unrealistic.
I would vote 9/10 for Holly alone, but overall, the other episodes drag down the entire film, and it gets an average 4/10 from me.
