Danish movie (not Swedish!) 'The sinful dwarf' (1973) has been a popular staple among bootleggers for years - now, it's finally on dvd! This is probably the same version as the one recently released in Sweden and Denmark, only here we got it on a double disc (there are two versions, one which contains a little hardcore...)!

Viggo Mortensen, the half Danish actor, has seen it, and called it "the most repulsive film" he's ever seen. Then again, maybe he hasn't seen that many repulsive movies...anyway, this is good, dirty fun for collectors of all things weird.

Viggo, if you want to see something r-e-a-l-l-y repulsive, you should seek out another oldtime favourite, Belgian 'The pig fu*king movie', aka 'The man and his pig' or 'Wedding trough'. Real name is 'Vase de noces', and was made by Belgian Thierry Zéno in 1974. Check it out (bring a bucket)! (Besides, you can already buy his 1981 mondo collaboration Of the Dead')

3.0 out of 5 stars Freaks Freaks Freaks May 22 2009
By Bartok Kinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"The Sinful Dwarf" is a Danish/American production which actually played in theaters in Denmark (I've talked people to who saw the "shocking" premiere). The lead actor, Torben Bille, is one the most recognized dwarf actors in Denmark...I guess, he would rather forget this ultra bizarre piece of sexploitation.

Torben lures innocent young girls to his mom's house with help of mechanical toy poodles. They are drugged and tied up and later abused by "clients" and/or sold into slavery. In between, Dwarf and his drunk mom are doin' several musical numbers. The many sex scenes are pretty close to porn and the soundtrack reminded me of the Residents. It's like an insane mix between "Bloodsucking Freaks" and "Pink Flamingos" with zero comic relief - this movie will blow your mind. Trash film mogul Harry Novak also backed "Please Don't Eat My Mother", "Kiss Me Quick" etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sleazy, Sinful Sewage - You`ll Probably Love It! March 14 2010
By 4-Legged Defender - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
If you clicked on this , you probably knew what you were in for already. The synopsis is in the product details and other review, so I won`t reiterate. No need to. Here`s what I came away with after viewing - Tobin Bell (the dwarf) is an exceptionally creepy, sleazy and unique character for this type of flick, elevating it so it`s watchable. He`ll make your skin crawl on more than one occasion, and his crazed 'Baby Jane'-type mother will do likewise. The idea of kidnapping girls, chaining them up in the attic, making them herion-addicted and suitable for rape to paying 'johns' to cover the bills is downright dispicable but, without it, we`d have no movie. It does drag here and there, but the use of toys is an exceptionally inventive visual device, as is the 'Santa`s Workshop' toy store becoming a degenerate metaphor within the movie. Only the Germans could fabricate such sewage and still make you wanna watch, distributed in the U.S. by raconteur sleazemeister Harry Novak. It`s a trainwreck, for certain, but you won`t look away, sinful as it gets... but you`ll wanna throw your dvd player thru the rinse cycle after you`re done...

4.0 out of 5 stars This ain't one of Santa's elves! Feb. 5 2010
By C. Christopher Blackshere - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Dwarfsploitation at it's most vile! Evil does indeed come in all shapes in sizes.
The Sinful Dwarf is a pretty straight foward heroine-smuggling/slavery ring flick from the 70's. It comes equipped with extended soft core sex scenes and other totally bizarre elements that will keep you off balance.

But what really makes this film unbelievably creepy is the explosive acting from the undersized Danish actor, Torben Billie. Not only does he have an uncanny resemblance to the goofy Jack Black, he plays this particular role with unsettling precision. Sheesh! I'm sure he was actually a very nice guy, but damn he's a scary little dude here.

His name is Olaf, and he helps his wicked mother run their London boarding house. Often times gorgeous women check in, but they don't check out. He also lures the naive beauties back to the hotel with cute little toys. Yep, oldest trick in the book.

I can't think of many things more alarming than seeing someone with a child-like appearance doing some of the most unspeakable atrocities to his beautiful female slaves. Mercy, little man!

With a title like The Sinful Dwarf, you oughtta have some idea what to expect.
Only recommended to the most sinfully warped and depraved of viewers. You know who you are.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleazy! Campy! Fun! Oct. 26 2009
By Joshua Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The Sinful Dwarf is an exploitation/horror film from 1973. The fact is, if you're looking for a masterpiece of cinema...You're looking in the wrong place. The review on the cover says it all; "The mother of all dwarfsploitation films! Over the top with nudity, sex, and disturbing images. It just doesn't get any sleazier, folks." This is a perfect example of truth in advertising, because The Sinful Dwarf is a sleazy movie-going experience...But if you don't mind the experience of watching a film about a psychotic dwarf and his even crazier mother, then you could do worse than this.

Torben Bille plays the dwarf, Olaf who assists his mother Lila Lashe with running their rooming house. In the opening scene, we see Olaf lead a girl to the attic of this house before knocking her unconscious. The room in the attic holds several girls, all naked and addicted to heroin, who Lila sells as sex slaves to various people. A young writer named Peter moves into a room with his beautiful wife Mary (Anna Sparrow), who grows suspicious about what exactly is going on in the attic.

But, enough about the plot...This film is 90 minutes long and as can be expected from an exploitation film, it has prolonged, gratuitous sex scenes and lots of nudity. As I said, there are girls locked in the attic that are naked. There's no shortage of anything sexual here.

I'm no aficionado on exploitation films, but I didn't expect much from this film. I watched it more out of morbid curiosity than anything else. The fact is The Sinful Dwarf is a fascinating little exercise in the exploitation genre. It's campy, a little bit creepy, and entertaining in its own strange way. This is a film that not only has two antagonist's, one a dwarf and another a deranged woman prone to prolonged dancing sequences...But, there's an overweight heroin dealer who sports an afro and goes by the name Santa Claus. It doesn't stop there; there's a scene where a girl is whipped where we never see the whip making contact with skin and after cutting back to the girl we see poorly applied red makeup to her body. The film's score sounds like a mix between horror film and porn music. The sets and overall look of the film had the potential to be creepy, but everything else is pure camp...And that's fine.

As for Olaf, he bares a passing resemblance to Jack Black and he is creepy, just never in a scary way. And there's plenty of him here to satisfy those `dwarfsploitation' fans. If you don't like The Sinful Dwarf, I doubt you knew what you were getting into beforehand. If you're curious about this movie, I recommend it...If it looks like something you'd enjoy, you likely will. It's an amusing, campy exploitation flick that is surprisingly better than you'd expect.
