Today's picture looks a lot like it's from the movie-within-the-movie featured in The Howling. I think there is even a longer version of it somewhere on the Internet. I always thought it would be cool if it had been from a real movie, because it looked so awesome.

to John Galt: I believe you are correct, "The Howling" was my first thought when I saw the clip. I remember when I first saw that movie and going thru that scene, hoping the director would just stay on the porn clip and not worry too much about the psycho talking to the reporter. Got to have priorities.

Certainly appears John Galt hit it first - I've seen the longer version but the quality was so grainy I wasn't certain what I was viewing - in fact the header is the best quality I've seen.

Stay well all

Once again, the Name The Movie game got answered almost immediately. I put the daily picture up at midnight every night, and by 12:45 we already had John Galt posting with the correct answer. You guys are good.

Yes, the picture was from The Howling, with its less than 20 seconds of footage from the bondage film that is playing when Dee Wallace goes to see the killer in the peep booth. I saw the movie in a theatre when it came out in 1981. I don't remember anything else from the movie, but those few seconds were permanently burned into my brain thereafter. I would have been about 19 then, and here was the kind of bondage film that I was looking for! A chick is tied to a bed, her panties are stuffed in her mouth, and she's raped by a masked thug. Very exciting stuff.

Old time GIMPers may recall a discussion we had here years ago where one of our posters said he found a foreign copy of the movie that had a DVD extra containing the entire 3-minute movie that director Joe Dante shot for the film. Here's his original review, now spiced up with some stills from the movie:

What happened later was the poster sent me a DVD copy of the scene, I sent it to Hank Hobbs, and he made caps and uploaded the footage to the net. I ran Hank's caps of the scene as the daily picture here.

I just checked. It's still there on his Yahoo group. For those of you who are members (I would hope all of you) click here to see Hanks caps and video footage.

Or if you're not a member there and just want to see the video, you can download it here. Seeing as it was never released on the US version of the film, it's a rare piece of footage, and one of my real faves.

Anyone seen this movie called Blitzkrieg, Escape from Stalag 69? I have not seen it. It definitely seems to have some Gimp material, but I don't know to what extent.

I have posted a new GIMP story that I wrote over the weekend - it is my first attempt at an actual GIMP story as opposed to tickling torture - please take a look at it and let me know what you think - I think it's hot but I would love some feedback.

My new story is about a university student who finds herself in the lair of an older gentleman who straps her into a modern-day guillotine and tortures her with many forced orgasms which bring her closer and closer to the waiting razor-sharp blade.

Hi guys

The recent discussion concerning clean vs dirty setting for rape and torture put me in mind of the film at the URL above. It's an 85 minute German film called "Die Inspektion" wherein a naked, somewhat punk-style girl is bound and tormented by two guys in an auto mechanic's garage. The film has some downside (she is never gagged; the "tools" used to torture her are standard BDSM toys, not pliers, rubber hoses or a soldering iron, which would have been far more arousing), but what I liked was that the garage is such a masculine environment - the hard, grimy surfaces of the workshop contrast with the soft curves of her body. There's some good grunge factor at work here. Her naked vulnerability is heightened from the start when she is tied spreadeagled, face down to a mechanical hoist, lifted up, her nipples clamped, a wheeled metal toolbox rolled under her belly, then vaginally and anally penetrated with metal dildos. And she's got really dirty feet, as you would have! I just wish I could speak German.

I can only imagine the fun Blakemore would have had using this setting for a feature length entry in the "Erotic Perversion" series. With live sound.

Hi Amy.

If a Celestial Being showers me with the money that I undoubtedly deserve, I shall be more than happy to pay for somebody to take your place in the office so that you may spend more time in the gym.

I shall also be keen to offer finance for your films. But do not hold your breath! My experience is that Celestial Beings mostly ignore us earthlings.

I would further be delighted to come to La Paz to take on the role of your personal trainer. But I should warn you that I am demanding to an extreme. I believe much more in sticks than carrots!

I have written about the opportunities available were you to be lowered into a vat of water, upside down; thereby needing to keep your face out of the water, by using your back or abdominal muscles.

Other scenarios which would show to advantage your newly recovered athletic physique, would be if you were to be suspended over a metal plate. You would need to use the muscles of your arms, shoulders and belly to keep your feet off the plate. The plate could be either heated and/or electrified to encourage your efforts.

If the plate is electrified, the terminals completing the circuit, can be attached to your nipples and/or vulva and/or anus. The better defined your musculature; the more visible the sinews and tendons in your body; the more expressive your body will be of your plight.

I am sure that an actor as physical as you are will desire to use your body to its expressive limits.

All the best to Amy and her colleagues. And to all Gimpers.

Ancient One: I read both your stories and enjoyed them. I really enjoy reading BDSM oriented fiction so I hope you will continue writing and posting your stories. I gotta tell you, though, if you want feedback (and what writer doesn't) this is not the best site to post your stories. My story got zero feedback. Eda Chang gets the most comments, but then she writes the best stories. She's kinda the gold standard, IMHO. But, after all, this forum primarily focuses on visual media. For specific story sites that provide immediate feedback you might consider Gagged Utopia and BDSM Library.

I just started watching a movie called My Way on Netflix. No, it's not about Frank Sinatra's secret life as a white slaver. It's a Korean movie about a Korean athlete sentenced to serve in the Japanese Imperial Army in WWII, basically because he beat a Japanese opponent in a marathon. There's a scene early on where an attractive female Chinese sniper is hung fully suspended (and fully clothed, goddammit) from a cross and has her hand smashed with a hammer. Looks like a really good film with high production values, and who knows, given that Korea apparently feels about Japan the same way that Mel Gibson feels about the British, there may be a few more scenes like that. I'll try and post some pics, but it's been a while.

DING DING DING! We have a winner! Yes, that's Sara Paxton getting raped in the remake of The Last House on the Left, a superior remake of the 1972 overrated original. I expect I'll be read the riot act by John Galt over this, but I've seen both and this is by far the better film. Yeah, not a very explicit rape, but then the original wasn't either, at least in terms of nudity. And the remake also has a good scene with dark-haired cutie Martha MacIsaac, who gets tied with her hands behind her and stabbed to death. Certainly not for every taste, but I thought it was hot.

FrenchSpanker: Mon Dieu! Thanks for identifying the mystery movie and saving me the embarrassment of submitting my next wild guess...Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. ;)


Actually, the two titles I mentioned are similar in that they both involve babes getting violated in the woods.

I butchered the name of the first one; the correct title is I'll Never Die Alone. Filmed in Argentina, it is a "violent thriller set in the outback of remote La Plata region...a tough and pounding story of revenge for rape, mercilessly carried out by a group of women intent on pursuing their attackers to the bitter end".

The other one, Break, is described thusly: "Four young girls head out into the Canadian woods for some outdoors fun. They wind up running into 2 brutal and sadistically inhuman rednecks. A blood-soaked fight for survival ensues."

I haven't seen any of the three flicks, but they've all been mentioned here in the past.

Any more mystery movies?

I have to admit, I've never seen the remake. Perhaps this confession will get me banished to the same island as those guys who still haven't seen A Clockwork Orange, but it's the truth.

That little snippet has got me thinking I should check out the remake. It looks pretty good.

To: Mr. Bush...About the anal thing...the way I got around the censorship forbidding showing any form of penetration was to just go ahead and make our girl take the "shaft" or "dildo" or whatever all the way in and then just not film the point of entry.

When making a film for the European market I'm sure you have seen the bloody wonder of that spiked dildo going into Sherry's pussy...(the chick in a red dress with the finest ass you ever saw) well as coming out so there was no restrictions about shoving something up a girls ass to torture her and to tell you the God's truth...being able to actually HURT my "victim" know, REALLY TORTURE her...especially her pussy...was unheard of and so hot I didn't even consider anal.

As you may have read in one or more of my previous "posts", can you just imagine the kind of movies I could make NOW, given the almost total lack of any kind of restrictions? Jeazzzus! I wish somebody would let me give them a shooting script to go along with the devices I could make that would make a movie nobody could watch all the way through without getting-off at least 3 times...(and that goes for guys over 50 too!) Not only that, but if anybody in the fucking world knows how to shoot on an almost non-existent budget it is ME!

Ya see...I'd love a scene where a gorgeous young bitch with a beautiful BIG boob-job is strapped down on a huge chair with "no seat"...her pussy poised above a Goddamn REAL steel dildo with REAL semi-sharp spikes on it that spurts warm or hot oil out the head.

Add to her terror, the fact that the design of the chair forces her to arch her breasts up and out while at the same time a leather band around her throat...(that can and will be tightened from behind the chair-back)...holds her head back.

The fun begins when we watch the dildo rotate and ream its way up inside that precious pussy...actually H-U-R-T-I-N-G her while she is forced to watch as her nipples are lightly burned just to tease her before she has to watch her breasts swell and become almost hard from being tied around the base before she almost loses her mind from the agony of long needles skewered through them.

Now add the close-ups of her face as she's slowly strangled and I mean for real damnit! A girl can be choked with a strap or rope until her eyes bulge and her tongue curls inside that luscious open mouth a LONG TIME before there is any physical risk at all...(but I've not seen anybody do more than hold the girls nose and "touch" her throat for a few seconds and THAT DOES NOT CAUSE NEARLY ENOUGH OXYGEN STARVATION TO CAUSE INVOLUNTARY ORGASM! My view is...if she isn't in REAL (albeit sexy) pain and doesn't actually look like she's terrified...why waste time and film?

Someone said it would be cost prohibitive to have to pay a beautiful woman with a chest like I demand...the amount of money it would take to get her to do it. WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! You just have to know where to find them and how to approach them because there ARE other women out there as drop-dead-gorgeous as my wife Danielle who also have EE breasts that would PAY ME to do that to them. The problem is that today's film makers are doing it just for the money instead of doing what I did...which was doing it for pleasure and then discovering I COULD GET PAID for doing what I had been doing since before I was in high school!

I guarantee you all, that if a man has the right kind of honest but "charismatic" approach...there are gorgeous women out there whose egos and vanity are what made them get huge breasts and maintain that spectacular body in the first place because they WANT TO BE RAVAGED AND RAPED but it's too will get in front of a camera where virtually the same thing happens to them without them being mutilated or murdered...but they ARE tortured.

Somebody tell somebody I'm available as an unpaid "consultant" who just wants to see films made the way I would have made them if had not been for the censorship!

Be well...don't get killed or caught!

How often does a mainstream movie have a fully naked chick, tied spread-eagled to a bed and gagged? In a fairly extended scene, mind you, lasting damn near the entire film? The answer is...not nearly often enough. For that reason, Spun is a GIMP classic.

I recently got an old computer of mine that I thought was dead forever working again, and there were a few bondage-related files on it. One was an old Whipped Ass shoot starring Sinn Sage and Jade Indica, which I decided to do a review for.

The scene starts with Jade Indica wearing a plaid shirt, a skirt and heels, with her arms tied behind her back at the wrists and elbows. She is roughly escorted from the bare corner where she is being held prisoner to the main area the scene takes place in (an austere basement/dungeon type setting with a few pieces of furniture) by Sinn Sage. I admit that a big part of the reason I'm even mentioning this shoot is that I feel the need to sing the praises of Sinn Sage. The girly-girl sadist who really does make the viewer believe that she likes hurting, humiliating or otherwise corrupting women. In another shoot of hers I saw, she shoved her hand into some chick's mouth until she started choking and crying, after which Sinn Sage removed her hand and spit in her face. She's a pretty good performer in these sorts of scenes, delivering a steady stream of slapping, choking, cropping and spitting to her hapless victim. What she's probably most known for in the adult industry generally is her rather large backside, which is impressive.

The first scene is basically a litany of spanking and slapping delivered to Jade. As Sinn removes her clothing she remarks negatively about the fact that Jade is already covered in bruises and marks from a previous beating. She aggravates them by slapping her bruised breasts and pinching them. Later she hits them with a riding crop, before eventually getting Jade in between her legs to service her. This goes on for quite some time, until Sinn (convincingly) cums, grabbing her sub by the hair and ramming Jade's face into her pussy. Good scene! A few slaps later and we're in the second scene.

Jade is tied AOH, with her legs tied in a spread position. She's gagged and for some reason is still wearing heels. Ugh. I actually kind of hate heels in scenes like this. Anyway, Sinn comes in and starts to torment her with electrical zaps. She also rubs ice on her and eventually starts beating her in random spots with a crop, focusing on the soles of her feet, her breasts and her inner thighs. Jade gives some good reactions of pain while continuing to drool over herself through her gag until there's a glistening sheen of spit covering her body. There's also some vibrator stuff in this scene, but that stuff is lame IMO.

Next scene. She's tied up completely naked, done up in slightly more complex bondage; tied wrists, ankles tied to thighs, and breasts criss-crossed with rope. Sinn Sage enters and forces her to lick her ass. She pulls her hair, slaps her, shoves a buttplug in Jade's ass, spits in her mouth a few times and generally degrades her. Eventually she gets tired of this dull affair and rides a dildo strapped into Jade's mouth, until she cums (again). Later Jade is vigorously strap-on fucked by Sinn.

The fourth and final scene is probably the most note-worthy, if only for the fact that it's a surprising departure from what "Whipped Ass" usually does. Despite the name of the site, WA doesn't seem to do much serious, well, "ass whipping". This is exactly what happens in this scene, though, with an AOH-tied collared Jade getting legitimately whipped by a now naked-except-for-heels Sinn Sage, who actually seems to put her whole body into delivering a hard flogging to Jade. So yeah. Isn't much to say about this scene except for that. A good flogging (by the relatively tame standards of Kink) delivered to a whimpering Jade.

That's about it. I actually like this shoot quite a bit, simply because there are so many elements involved in it. Face slapping, spitting, choking, cropping, whipping, electrical stuff, etc. The rope bondage is tight and convincing, which is very important for me personally, and something that Kink pretty much always does well. The sub is responsive, gives good expressions of pain and a few tears. The dom is the sly, cruel, pretty Sinn Sage. Neither women have tattoos (except for a small one on Sinn Sage's wrist). But, and this is a big BUT, you never get the sense that this scene is non-consensual. So I know that's a deal breaker for some people. So overall I suppose that, considering that fact, I'd probably give this shoot a C overall.

PS: Another shoot that I recently came across that's actually REALLY FUCKING GOOD and maybe one of the best Kink maledom scenes I've watched is the Sasha Grey shoot. Woah. Great shoot, Sasha Grey is incredibly good in it; she was a beautiful girl and a great talent, it's too bad she's not really around anymore. But it's already been capably reviewed, so...

Renzo Novatore: That was a nice review of WA-6419 with Jade Indica and Sinn Sage. Whipped Ass is not my favorite site, being more of a Les-Dom pain and humiliation extravaganza. Humiliation isn't bad, but it does not push any of my buttons, personally. Still, two hot naked chicks, suspension bondage and strap-on sex is always an enjoyable combination. Nice job with the illustrations, as well. Thanks!

* * * * *

It is always such a pleasure to get turned onto an older movie that somehow escaped my attention. I had not even heard about Spun, much less that it had a naked spread-eagled bed-top scene in it. I'm guessing there's no punishment or sex involved, or surely that would have been mentioned. I recognized yesterday's picture from the meh remake of The Last House on the Left. (We can agree to disagree on that, Ralphus, although honestly I didn't think either movie was a truly stand-out GIMP flick.) But this one stumped me completely, and now I'll have to check it out. I see that it is available on DVD from Netflix, but not via Netflix Instant. That's... inconvenient.

* * * * *

Jake: Die Inspektion sounds like a winner. The suspension sex aspect especially appeals to me. Another movie I will need to check out.

As far as clean vs dirty settings: I don't mind the relative cleanliness of the setting, although I suppose I would prefer a clean, cold, impersonal clinical environment. I think maybe it's the contrast between a clean and clinical location and doing dirty and nasty things to a helpless naked hot female victim that I like. I don't have a problem with dungeons, either, but the lighting is usually so much worse in a dungeon, and I like my visuals to be crisp and clear.

Speaking of Last House on the Left (the remake), my local listings indicate that it's airing tonight at 9:30 on Spike TV.

I've not seen the movie and know nothing about Spike TV. Anyone care to opine about how much of this movie will not be shown?


Renzo Novatore: Thanks for letting us know about Sinn Sage. I like that lacy corset thingy she's wearing.

I agree with John Galt, those caps are fantastic.

I'm glad you got your computer working too...that means there is still hope for mine.


Gotta believe the girl in Spun is being tortured. Tied to the bed the whole movie with no opportunity to visit the ladies' room? Yep, that's torture.

Renzo Novatore: Thank you very kindly for gracing the board with your Whipped Ass review. It's a big help having the vidcaps to go along with it; they really enhance the text and help us decide if it's something we'd like to check out.

In this case, I think Sinn Sage would be the main reason I would go for this one, since I think she's hotter than the girl she's brutalizing. But it's the dreaded C word...consensual...that plagues nearly everything I've seen from If the victim is going along with it and liking it, I'm staying away. Sinn is such a pretty woman, seems a waste to have her working for that infernal company.

The link for your latest review is in my Homepage URL above.


DHT: Another Chainsaw Massacre? I guess that series will never die as long as there's a new generation of horror fans willing to fork over their bucks to see the same old formula. But in this case, I don't mind. Unlike a lot of the horror franchises out there, the chainsaw movies almost always feature young women in bondage. And this one with smokin' hottie Alexandra Daddario tied with her arms outstretched and very tightly gagged makes it a must-see. Thanks for pointing that one out.

YikYakker: There's some non-GIMP topless nudity in the remake of LHOTL, so assuming Spike TV doesn't allow skin, you're definitely going to be missing something. The bondage stabbing with Martha MacIsaac and the rape scene with Sara Paxton unfortunately don't have nudity, but you never know how a network is going to edit an R-rated movie. Best bet would be to invest a couple bucks and rent the DVD.


Regarding the bondage scene in Spun; technically there's no torture or rape, but what happens is this guy ties her to bed and then goes off and leaves her for days, finally comes back and starts to diddle her, gets a phone call, and rather than untie her, he leaves her again tied to that bed...FOR 4 DAYS. In the commentary track, it was discussed that he should put a bowl between her legs so she could pee, but they ended up not doing that in the movie.

I recently watched the movie My Way on Netflix. It's about two world class marathon runners, one Japanese, the other Korean, and their ordeals as soldiers during WWII. I thought it was going to be really good, but it turned out to be overwrought melodrama IMO so I won't dwell on it.

This is the only GIMP worthy scene. A female Chinese sniper has been captured and suspended from a beam. She declares her personal distaste of all things Japanese and assures her interlocutors that all of China joins her in this disapprobation. The Interrogator (or Closer, as the Japanese call him) picks up a hammer and smashes her hand. Cut to next scene and she's being dragged away. But now, through the magic of screen capture technology I realize I entirely missed the finer points of the scene. Note that there is an electrical console in the left foreground. You know that it's an electrical console because of the light bulb shining like a little incandescent cherry. And if you look really closely, you can make out electrical wires snaking out from the bottom of the console, the ends of which are wrapped around the woman's toes. So she's being tortured with electricity! There's no hint of that in the movie.

Do you think it would have been more realistic if the Japanese had stripped her, raped her, and then shocked the shit out of her? Is the Dalai Lama a Buddhist? But I'll take what I can get, mainstream wise, and anyway I'm quite pleased that I picked out those important little details that make this scene, how shall I say it?--sparkle? It's almost as fulfilling as finding Waldo.

Today's picture from Drive Thru (2007) - a clown mask makes any scene creepier. At least for me. Way creepier.

Gog - Lol, why do I feel like it would be incredibly useful to have a doll of myself? That would be so weird. I could have a lot of fun taking kooky pictures with "myself". You may like Fantom, I have a hard time watching the strangling scene for some reason, it's intense and lasts for some time.

Image hosted by

YikYakker - Thanks! And you're right, Gog's photo is from a location scout. I wish I had more time to do more of those. It's interesting that you brought up the Argentinian movie No Morire Sola (I'll Never Die Alone). I was going to write a review on it a while back and never had the time. There are some interesting and drawn out rape scenes, which is why I watched it, but the rest of the movie was a bit disappointing to me.

John Galt wrote - Burning at the stake. Regenerate. Crucifixion. Regenerate. Full-length body impalement. Regenerate. Hanging or strangulation. Regenerate. Cutting off of various body parts. Regenerate. All of the nasty and sadistic things you've seen done in horror movies, carried out serially. I don't suppose anyone has seen a live action movie like this? What we need is a sexually sadistic Japanese version of JJ and a Japanese version of Amy Hesketh as his willing muse. *sigh* I can dream.

We've got that covered. It's called Dead But Dreaming. Maybe not all of that is carried out in the first movie, but vampires have so much potential for regeneration, don't they...

gimpfan - Thanks for asking! We'll be posting a trailer and some teasers as soon as we have them. We're super close to the premiere of Barbazul, which will mean our press tour will dry up a bit and we'll have all the time in the world to devote to getting Le Marquis de la Croix out there. We're a small team, so those with the skills to edit trailers have to work on the movies one at a time in order of priority. Alas.

Dirty vs Clean - For me there's something to be said about each scenario. If the space is clean to the point of being clinical, that's weird and off-putting in a good way. It makes me think that something particularly nasty is going to happen there. It also makes me imagine that the agressor is someone with some psychopathic/OCD condition, which is more dangerous for the victim perhaps. On the other hand, a dirty room with filthy sheets gives an immediate sense of hopelessness for the victim. And the sense that the agressor(s) do not care what happens to the victim. Personally I hate being dirty so, when it happens, it helps my character development.

Renzo Novatore: Nice job on the review of the Whipped Ass shoot. I enjoyed the review and agree with the consensus that those are some great caps.

That shoot isn't normally the type of thing I enjoy but I do admit the caps look tempting. Sinn Sage is certainly hot. This may seem like a dumb question (I mostly follow Japanese porn these days) but has Sage appeared as a victim in other shoots?

A Canadian: Asking about whether a dom has appeared as the sub or victim in other shoots is not a dumb question. It is rare that I see an established dom take the submissive role, and when it happens it is usually accompanied by quite the fanfare. In the sites, it looks like Sinn Sage is the "victim" in a Device Bondage shoot from August 2010, a Device Bondage shoot from September 2010, and a Device Bondage shoot from October 2010. They might have all been part of the same session, and just released separately. She has done several other shoots with, but it looks like she's been a dom in all the others.

Amy Hesketh: Hey, thanks for the heads up about the torture-to-death/resurrection possibilities of Dead But Dreaming. I generally think about vampires as being the dominant roleplayers, but I supposed in a vampire heirarchy there might be some extreme dominant/submissive action. Vampire victims wouldn't "die," so to speak, but as far as being physically abused and possibly damaged and then regenerating for more abuse and damage, it works. It will be interesting to see how brutal and perverse you folks get in the movie series. Although I strongly suspect you will not be able to match the explicit brutality of an anime series, you've proven your capabilities in previous films. My anticipation for Dead But Dreaming has just increased.

Jon Smithie: Thanks for the brief review of the single applicable GIMP scene in My Way, and especially for the picture that kind of says it all. All in all, I think I will give it a pass. I prefer nudity in my torture scenes. Not even the hint of electro-torture (compliments on your attention to detail) entices me.

Amy Hesketh: On the other hand, a dirty room with filthy sheets gives an immediate sense of hopelessness for the victim. And the sense that the agressor(s) do not care what happens to the victim. Personally I hate being dirty so, when it happens, it helps my character development.

Thanks for posting this, Amy. I think us guys can often forget the subtle psychology behind different scenarios - women are conditioned to keep themselves clean at all times, and to present themselves nicely, and this adds something to the despair of being kept in a dirty place.

A dirty room is also evocative of a shed or a stable - places where normally only animals and insects live, which is sure to play on the victim's mind.

I am sure Amy was talking about made up filthy dirty bedbugs, roach fece infested beds and torture rooms. In all of Maleficarum's dungeon tortures I saw no rats, roaches and or filthy things you would think would be in a real torture dungeon which was great call.

Because if I see filthy disgusting creatures and things it takes away the eroticism of any kind of gimp scene. Plain dirty conditions are good but even made up filthy conditions are bad for me. That's my two cents worth on Amy doing a filthy gimp movie scene or any other filthy gimp movie scene. I'm a clean gimp nut. Bill K.

Rogue River features what could have been the best GIMP scene of the year, if only they had lengthened it out. For 80 of the film's 81 minutes, there's no GIMPage at all. But that one minute-long scene...whoa! Michelle Page gets knocked out with a skillet and when we see her next, she's bound to a chair very securely with duct tape. And a sick old woman teaches her a lesson about not talking by pouring a kettle of boiling water down her throat. It's a terrific scene and clearly the highlight of the film, but it's over much too quickly.

Here's the trailer for the film:

There's a great deal of conflict with Jac's vampires in Dead But Dreaming, so yes, some extreme dominant/submissive action. It was exciting to film those scenes, and I'm looking forward to more.

mothbrad - I think us guys can often forget the subtle psychology behind different scenarios - women are conditioned to keep themselves clean at all times, and to present themselves nicely, and this adds something to the despair of being kept in a dirty place.

I agree. While I'm not one to endlessly primp like some ladies, I'm really big on having myself, and everything around me, clean. It makes me feel in control of my surroundings. If the cleanliness is someone else's doing, the agressor's, or if the environment is dirty, it takes away that sense of control.

Bill K. - I am sure Amy was talking about made up filthy dirty bedbugs, roach fece infested beds and torture rooms. In all of Maleficarum's dungeon tortures I saw no rats, roaches and or filthy things you would think would be in a real torture dungeon which was great call.

Yes, infesting the dungeon in Maleficarum or Le Marquis de la Croix with rats might have caused some serious problems in addition to being uneccesary. It's the illusion of dirt, the suggestion of filth, that is needed in certain movies. Atmosphere. A dungeon that doesn't have straw or rushes on the stone floor and some incidental dirt on the walls just wouldn't look right. Such as when in a movie set in the past the costumes are all shiny and new-looking. Details and art direction can make or break the atmosphere.

In the rape scene in Maleficarum, or at any other time when I was on my face in the straw it was unpleasant.

When I was dragged through the mud in The Perils of Jane in the Green Inferno, it was wonderful to take a shower at the end of the day. The shooting conditions were pretty severe in The Perils of Jane, since we had no control over how many bugs were attacking me (I wore repellent) it rained so there was a large quantity of mud. But that contributed to the movie since I kept slipping.

Yes, it is Cheryl Lawson tied AOH in The Dead Pit, another one of those movies that's totally forgettable except for a 1-minute long scene, one that really doesn't have anything to do with the rest of the film. But the filmmakers knew they had an arresting image, which is why they prominently featured it right on the box cover. They're no dummies!

For all the good that does, since I never guess what it is anyway.

Your neighbors to west in Indiana, on the other hand, may be on Eastern or Central time, depending on what neighborhood they live in. It's my understanding that local authorities get to decide which time zone they wish to assign to their communities.

That confused the hell out of me once while I was travelling across the state.

Well, over 1400 of you stopped by today and nobody guessed the Name The Movie answer this time. So that's the end of that game. It's either apathy or else I found a movie that all 1400 of you have not seen. And it's too bad, because this is a good one to seek out.

It's called Sutures; the actress is the beautiful Kate French, who gets grabbed from behind and ends up tied nude on an operating table. She is gagged with duct tape and they cut into her breasts to remove her implants, but they botch the job and she ends up a bloody mess, but still conscious. So they decide to harvest her body for organs...while she's still alive, of course. There's some great threatening dialogue ("You're going to see the piece at a time") and also a terrific scene as she cries and watches helplessly as they discuss how they'll be cutting into her without anesthetic because that could affect the organs they'll be removing. And the scene has a payoff as they jab a sharp instrument into her as she screams and the scene fades out. Needless to say, this is one scene that always does it for me every time.


Well, we talked about it just last week, and now it appears that "Revolution" is going to come through with a genuine GIMP scene for series hottie Tracy Spiridakos. According to the teaser for tonight's show, her character is going to be tied to a chair and gagged (with duct tape...yay!). It's one of those age old "death traps" where an arrow is aimed at her and triggered to be released when someone opens the door. I can already tell what's going to happen, but those scenes can be fun sometimes.

The episode airs at 10:00 tonight. Here's the teaser from NBC's website:

Really they did; the older organs to be donated are kept fresher if the doner is kept alive.

From IMDB:

The film adaptation of the hit erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" will be written by Kelly Marcel, Universal Pictures and Focus Features said Monday. Marcel's previous credits include the 2011 Black List script "Saving Mr. Banks," about Walt Disney's decades-long pursuit to obtain the film rights to the P.L. Travers book "Mary Poppins." That project is currently in production at Walt Disney Studios, with Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson and Colin Farrell starring.

I have to admit that I am exceedingly interested to see if Kelly Marcel is a talented enough writer to pen a Walt Disney movie about Mary Poppins starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson and then turn around a write a decent script involving BDSM sex, humiliation and punishment. On the upside, IMDB indicates she got her start in musical theater with the UK version of Debbie Does Dallas, The Musical. And hey: It could be lots worse. The film could be getting made by Walt Disney Studios and starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson.

You're welcome for that visual.

As an outside observer, it sounds like a book written for chicks that likely romanticizes S/M and makes it appealing to women. Me, I'm more into men's entertainment like "Torture Tomb" or "The Girl Next Door" or "Let's Go Play at the Adams'". But to each their own.

Well, "Revolution" turned out to be a damned good TV scene, mainly because of the cuteness of the actress (who looks even hotter with her mouth taped up). Nice direction, too, with lots of shots of her worried face and even some shots of her bound wrists and ankles.

I watched Revolution and was it was a very good looking acted fearful gimp scene but what worries me about Revolution is the premise (storyline) that electricity can be turned off. Really! Like last years NBC "Event" it's unbelieveable plot will doom it to an early cancelled death.

Also think about it a minute, the USA 1776 until about late 1800s, humans had no electricity and we had civil laws and civil liberities. I hope I'm wrong because I like the show and we'll see were it goes. Bill K.

For those who like Ringdivas' heroine destruction Girls of War movies, the link is to an interview of the director of the upcoming Girls or War web series starring hottie Cali Danger. I liked this quote of what's in store:

"Instead of having a captured heroine endure the same sort of destruction through out the film with no real purpose or goal, there is an increasing awareness of danger that comes in the form of abuse levels. As each level passes the type of destruction and level of brutality gets more and more sinister and aggressive and there is a purpose. The villian wants something and won't stop until they get it. As the level of brutality increases fans watch the will power of the heroine break before their very eyes. Its quite exciting to witness."

Question about the movie Don't Go In The House.

I recently read several discussions here about the movie, which I have found very interesting. However I was surprised that it was stated that only the first victim was stripped naked prior to her death. Is there a definitive answer regarding the modesty of the other victims?

Clearly the first woman was stripped totally naked before being burned alive:

Then the next two victims are shown, but their deaths are not shown, so we don't know whether or not they had been stripped before being killed. Finally the last two women are shown fully dressed:

I always thought that the killer was going to strip them before killing them, but that he just happened to be interrupted by his friend and the priest before he was able to remove their clothing.

Can anyone clarify this for me?

Donny: The reason is that 'Don't Go in the House' was that it was a shit movie, with a shit director, and a shit script. I've said this before, awhile back. The ONLY reason that we are even talking about this piece of crap movie today is the bondage scene with Joanna Brushay. That the directer would put in a second scene, just as good with two girls? Yes... that would fulfill your fantasy and mine, but in mainstream movies that never happens. If I were you, I wouldn't ponder the illogic of it, as its a pretty futile exorcise.

"Don't Go In The House" I have the movie clip of the burning alive woman which was the only good thing and only thing to talk about a while back here.

I cannot think of very many movies with excellent GIMP scenes that were actually good movies from beginning to end, so I have a hard time denigrating Don't Go in the House because it was a grade B exploitation flick. The first time I saw Johanna Brushay's character in the form-fitting knit sweater, tight jeans and boots that covered her from top to bottom, I was already trying to picture her naked. Her beautiful face and long full flowing hair just added to the attraction. Seeing her walking and moving around was exciting. The entire sequence built up tension and anticipation that broke a small climax when he knocked her out, then built up tension and anticipation again as she struggled bound, naked and helpless--for an extended period of time, to my way of thinking--until the flaming finale.

Whatever my criticism of the rest of the movie might be, the Johanna Brushay sequence, from beginning to end, stands out in my mind as a classic mini-movie all by itself. I disagree with Sardu, who seems to be, um, exorcising some personal cinematic issues of his own. I thought the director built it up and paid it off in a way that few other GIMP flicks have accomplished before. That isolated bit demonstrated some talented GIMP directing and scripting. That's why I gave it a good grade in my review.

As to why the movie didn't show other girls being burned alive, I have some thoughts. Much as I would have liked to see more naked struggling women being terrorized and burned, I think the one scene we got was sensational enough, and any subsequent scenes might have diminished the one we did get. Plus, it would have been repetitious. And maybe just a bit anticlimactic. It would have made it more exciting if the psycho pyromaniac had changed up his MO, and we could have seen a variety of GIMPish endings for a variety of naked terrified women. But he did the same thing over and over and so the director left it to the viewer's imagination. Or maybe that was all the special effects budget the director had. It was only a B movie, after all. Adjust your expectations appropriately.

I think it's fascinating that a movie made over 30 years ago still gets discussed here as often as it does. It all relates back to a review we had here recently (I forget who wrote it) but the point that he made went something like this:

"If you're a filmmaker and you can do pull off even one GIMP scene, and do it well, no matter how big a piece of crap your film is, it will be fondly remembered. If you do it badly, your film will basically fade into obscurity.

In the case of Don't Go In The House, it was not only done well, it practically set the standard when it came to burning torture scenes. Simply put, it's one of the greatest GIMP scenes ever made...period. And the movie itself was watchable but mediocre at best. But it doesn't matter; it's that one scene that people remember it for today.

I totally with agree with John Galt that to repeat the scene again in the film would have been repetitive but nudity would have been helpful in the subsequent scenes. Could be that the director didn't think it was necessary after the big payoff earlier in the film. Of the 2 victims we see later, one is already shown charred and smoking. She might have been stripped first, but since we never saw the complete scene, we can only assume that's what happened. The last woman is rescued before he can strip her.

Yeah, it's hard to believe, but we're not universally loved by the critics. It could be that such a hard-hitting, true-life documentary made them a bit uncomfortable. Like when we cut that chick's head off and I used her severed head to give myself a blow job. "Sick and disgusting", the critics wrote. Yeah, whatever. Let's see a documentary crew follow them around for 24 hours a day so I can criticize what they do for fun.

With all the chatter concerning "Don't Go in the House" I had to pull it from the archives and give it another view - hard to believe that was the only movie appearance ever for Joanna Brushay - and yes, it certainly qualifies as a B grade film (or worse) but isn't it from that arena that so many classic Gimp moments arrive - they did miss the boat on the last two victims - we knew they would be rescued but still, some further torment other than simply being tied and awaiting our favorite pyro-dude would have been nice - unlike mainstream flicks, it is this type of effort that deserves a remake.

Stay well all

The nice thing about Johanna Brushay besides AOH is that she has very nice thick hair in both places. Maybe it is just me but a woman hung like that with pubic hair looks more naked to me than a shaved woman.

I knew they did outdoor fiery bondage stuff but did not know they were considered extreme Graphic Sexual Horror movie makers and a target for Republican porn haters. I'll have to check the "Graphic Sexual Horror" movie out. Thanks, Bill K.

I for one would NOT like to see "Don't Go in the House" remade. In my humble opinion, this is a rare conflagration of actress, situation, and film maker that would probably never be repeated. Joanna had an interesting look about her... a lovely, REAL red head... that patch of hair between her legs pairing up with that lovely mane of wavy hair. She is just a gorgeous damsel. She is nicely curved... and completely naked. The bondage is total. I love the flash of her feet... bare, manacled to the floor, and on tip toes! Such a nice touch. Then, the build up to the end scene appropriately builds the tension, while the camera lingers on her totally naked body. I agree with Ralphus, this scene is one of the best ever filmed.

Finally, the burning itself is interestingly filmed. I do not think I've ever seen better... the close up of her struggling burning hands. Its just a great scene, and since the rest of the movie was shit, I can only come to the conclusion that this was a complete fluke... and considering what modern film makers have done with recent remakes, "I Spit on your Grave", "Last House on the Left", and "Straw Dogs", I am not confident that a remake would improve on what is arguably near GIMP perfection.

Ralphus, it was I who said that a movie that is mediocre can become legend with a well done GIMP scene. Also, my dear, height challenged friend, you are going to earn my ire if you keep teasing like that with the Kagan. You can't just show me a damsel in that sort of situation, and then not let me see what happens next! Stop being a tease!

Let me just add emphatic agreement to Sardu's preference that he would not like to see a remake of Don't Go in the House. There is no mainstream or independent filmmaker working today with the courage or twisted vision it would take to even duplicate--much less improve--the Johanna Brushay sequence from the original. And let's face it, that is the defining characteristic of the movie. In all other respects it is just another Grade B "slasher" exploitation flick, employing the same basic abusive-mother-creates-psychopathic-child story line as Psycho, albeit with painfully less style.

Even so, Johanna Brushay joins my list of Magnificent One-Shot Wonder actresses (along with Gwen Lewis, the hot and sexy victim in the absolutely best scene from Eyes of a Stranger) for making a lasting GIMP impression.

C'mon guys to say that naked gimp burning scene from "Don't Go in the House" should not be done again is like saying naked bats like Amy's Maleficarum bats should not be done again. I seen lots of gimp soaked in gas and set afire (clothed of course) on TV shows. Why not do a naked gas burning gimp again with much better and different storyline than "Don't Go in the House" of course? I'd also add a pre burn rape, whipping and assorted Gimper's favorite tortures to tenderize the gimp. Bill K.

I don't know, while I've never seen "Don't Go In The House", I think there may be some filmmakers who would be daring enough to do something close to what the scene sounds like. Maybe the makers of "A Serbian Film", for example. As far as mainstream films go, I thought that the "blood bath" scene in "Hostel 2" was quite impressive. Considering the fact that it was a mainstream film and all.

Regarding "Graphic Sexual Horror", I've seen it but I read the review from another user and thought it was a very good summary of the film, reminded me of some things I'd forgotten about the film. One thing I do remember is that PD came off as a colossal asshole in the film, lol. The whole thing about him coercing women to have sex with him after shoots was kind of gross. Also, the scene in which he has some sort of conflict with one of his models on-set was really difficult to watch, as the review's weird, as I admittedly like seeing women tortured and in distress, but that just seemed too...I don't know, real? I felt sorry for that girl, she didn't deserve to be treated like that. I realize that he was just trying to get genuine reactions out of his models, but any "normal person" who watched that scene would probably come away from it with a very negative perception of PD.

Thanks YikYakker. It is indeed a scene from Hispania and I found it easily enough on Youtube. In fact, I remembered seen it before. All in all, not a bad scene. Of course, it could be much, much better....but then we can always say that, can't we? If only she had let out one good scream! At least she doesn't appear stoic though, always a total turnoff for me.

Name: Donny

*Sardu: I agree that Johanna Brushay is the main reason most people still remember this movie.

*Bill K.: Good point about the victim's acting and later the burning effect itself being another reason this movie is still remembered.

*John Galt: Great review and I agree that Johanna Brushay's sequence is almost like a separate little "mini-movie." And now that you mentioned it, I agree that showing all the victims could have possibly become repetitious, as well as the possibility that the one scene that was shown was all that the movie's budget allowed.

*Ralphus: I hadn't considered that maybe the director simply decided that after the first scene with Johanna Brushay that any further scenes like that would have been unnecessary but I see your point.

*Sloth: It is amazing that this was Johanna Brushay's only movie role, and think that she could of at least been in a few more movies before she decided to retire from acting. And I agree that the last two victims (that were saved) could have been handled a little better in the film.

*mr bush: I agree that Johanna Brushay was a good fit for this movie.

*Renzo Novatore: A good point and I agree that there are some talented filmmakers that might be daring enough to try to film a scene like this again.

I really wish that the last two victims would have been handled a little better in the film, because then we might have been able to determine if all of his victims had been stripped before being killed, which is what I think happened, or if only the first victim had been stripped. Anyway, thanks again for all the replies.

It's true--especially for geezers like myself--that the grand old classic GIMP scenes become conflated in our minds, so that they seem like parts of some nonstop GIMP ride. It's easy to forget that some of these movies were turds and the delectable scenes were few and far between...

Much more memorable, however, were those movies that really gave young GIMPers their money's worth. Recently, I had the pleasure of taking in (for the umpteenth time) the Jack Hill classic, Women in Cages, featuring the inimitable Pam Grier. Pam is the tormenter in this one, as women's prison official Alabama.

She subjects Judy Brown to a suspension/fire combo...

...and gives Roberta Collins the juice.

But Pam gets her comeuppance late in the movie. First she's tied to a tree and whipped with branches...

Then, just before she can slink away, she's set upon by a gang of horny scumbags.

*heh-heh* Easy guys, there's enough Pam to go around.

I'm surprised no one has reviewed this...yet.

It would certainly be hard to remake this one and capture the same je ne sais quois. (That's French for "uninhibited GIMP approach").

YikYakker: Actually, the woman being electro-shocked was Jennifer Gan, not Roberta Collins. We have the clip in the Electro-Shock Database.

The beautiful Roberta Collins, however, didn't emerge unscathed. She gets tied naked to a giant wheel and spun around as part of her punishment. When Grier confronts her, Roberta responds by spitting at her. So Pam gives the wheel another spin and stabs her with a trident as she's spun around again.

Hank has several more stills and clips in his Yahoo group.

IMO, Women in Cages is the best of the women's prison movies, in terms of all the excellent fates the GIMPettes face throughout the film. 4 different naked women are tied up and tortured/raped in this one. I would welcome a review by anyone who wants to tackle the assignment.


Remaking Don't Go In The House: Why remake a classic? I seriously doubt anybody working today would be able to top, let alone equal, the brilliance of the original. So why try? Why not remake a bad movie, or in our case, a bad GIMP scene, and try to get it right this time?

Think about all the times a film had promise, only to fail for various and sundry reasons, such as ineffective bondage, no gags, putz interference, too much blood, weak acting, no nudity, scene too short...gosh, the list goes on and on. Remake THOSE movies!

One more last comment from me about the gimp burning scene in "Don't Go In The House" in the 1980s is that it was done with mirror image reflection fire/flames on body. (Analog special effects) At least that's what I read how it was done.

With today's digital computer special effects that same burning scene can of course be done a lot better and real looking. It would just matter if a gimp producer wants to do that kind of fiery gimp movie scene again which I hope so.

We can reburn her better, more hotter and more erotically then before. It can be DONE. Bill K.

One last comment about Don't Go In The House. The first time I watched Saw III, when the Freezer Trap was shown, the person that I was watching the movie with, who had already seen Don't Go In The House, leaned over to me and stated that it reminded them of the burning scene from Don't Go In The House! Has anyone else thought that?

One GIMP scene that I wouldn't mind seeing remade was (ironically, a remake itself) "Funny Games". Naomi Watts gets bound with tape in her underwear. Could've been awesome if there was more torture and sexual abuse/humiliation, but no, the cretinous villains ultimately felt that the best thing to do with a bound, almost-naked Naomi Watts was simply to murder her. Pathetic! No fault of Ms Watts, though, she was great with the crying and begging and what-not. She's a talented actress. I just remember watching that one scene and thinking, hmmm, I like where they're going with this...and then ultimately thinking, eh, they didn't really go anywhere with that. Bummer!

@Donny: Wow, your friend wasn't the only one! I thought that way too, although I think of Debra McCabe scene in SAW III more like the opposite of DGITH, and more tastefully & explicitly done too. But seriously, AOH, spreadeagle, and strappado must be the 3 best bondage positions ever crafted. Any scene in any movie with any of those 3 positions is worth watching.

To a greater or lesser extent, you can find decent ones in I Spit on your Grave (1978), Dark Tide (although she was wired spreadeagled to a fence), Demon Seed (tied to a bed by a computer), Diary of a Rape (even though she did allow herself to be tied), The Evil Dead (restrained by vines and raped by a branch), Flesh+Blood (held aloft and deflowered and then held down and nearly raped), The Entity (invisible bondage and rape), Inseminoid (BEM rape), Lipstick. . . .

That is a massively incomplete listing up through the L's. I could go on and on, but you get the idea.

The Don't Go In the House and Saw III comparisons: You know, they are quite similar, with the exception that the torture/execution they go through are polar opposites. It's almost as if the filmmakers behind Saw III wanted to recreate the DGITH scene with a different twist...freezing water instead of fire.

Both women are standing nude, tied AOH, and both do some major screaming. In terms of length, the Saw III scene is a bit longer, although some of that is spent on the guy's predicament in trying to find the key before the victim freezes to death.

IMO, DGITH builds up to the climactic moment better than Saw III. We see Johanna Brushay in the previous scene. I like seeing the potential victim beforehand, building up the suspense and giving us time to fantasize about her before the deed actually happens. On the other hand, I don't recall if we ever see Debra McCabe at all before her one major scene, correct me if I'm wrong.

And once the killer bashes Brushay over the head and she awakens to find herself in bondage, then it's straight-forward through the victim's ordeal, much more compact and nothing to edit out.

This gives me an idea for a poll question, and hopefully another way to get this board talking.

For those of you who have seen both scenes, which do you think is the better GIMP scene and why?
A. Don't Go In The House (Johanna Brushay)
B. Saw III (Debra McCabe)

To refresh your memories, or if you've never seen both scenes, here's 2 downloadable video links from Hank Hobbs' group. Unfortunately, the Saw III clip is edited, which really isn't fair in this contest, but most GIMPers are likely already familiar with it.



My own opinion? Both scenes are very well-done. I happen to think Johanna Brushay is the better-looking victim in the choice between her and Debra McCabe. You also get a lot better-lit view of her naked body. The bondage is better because Brushay's ankles are tied together. You also have excellent suspense before the payoff when you see him grab the gasoline can and pour it over her naked body.

But to me, the reason DGITH is the hands down winner is because cinematically, fire/burning is a lot more exciting visually than spraying water at someone. As I've stated before, it's one of the greatest GIMP scenes ever filmed.

All right, I've baited the hook for you guys, all that's left is for you to grab the bait and then vote for your favorite. Let's hear from you. This is important stuff, and I will be keeping score. Everybody needs to do the right thing and VOTE.

Ralphus is right, it was a nice scene, and Roberta Collins (the real one) is beautiful. The scene was kinda short though, and at the risk of sounding like a *** SPOILer ***, it did not turn out as bad as it sounds. The torture was interrupted by a riot.

I found her character interesting...she was kinda strung out, sweaty, edgy, nervous...especially waving that machine gun around following the breakout.


Hmmmm. SAW vs. DGITH. Each scene is outstanding in its own way, but for pure shock value, I gotta go with Johanna.

God no... it's a new poll! Must... not... succumb! Resist... resist... urge to vote... Strength... fading. Can't... hold... out! Aaaaaagh...

* * * * *

Poll: I agree with Ralphus, and for most of the same reasons. Both DGITH and Saw III have one great GIMP scene, but for me DGITH wins out despite being filmed 27 years earlier in the pre-digital age. Though freezing to death is slower and hence more drawn out than burning, it lacks the drama of being flame broiled alive. I've heard that dying of exposure is not all that unpleasant because the body shuts down gradually, deadening the nervous system to pain. On the other hand, burning is said to be among the worst, most intense deaths imaginable. I suppose that's why, if you want to get a woman to talk, you bring out the hot irons. If you want to turn her on, you grab the ice cube tray.

Though both scenes are sexy - how can you lose with lovely victims suspended naked AOH? - I think poor Johanna suffers much more than Debra, and for that reason alone DGITH gets my vote.

But I also agree with Ralphus regarding Johanna being the more comely victim. This of course is a matter of personal taste, and younger readers may wonder how a 70's chick could possibly... ahem, stack up against a babe of more recent vintage. But to those head-scratchers, I ask only that you check out the first two handy comparison shots in Ralphus's post. In particular, look at the bodies of our fair heroines. Need more be said?

On the other hand, I have to admit the Saw III scene does have one advantage over the competition: Debra does not sport the uncontrolled pubic growth afflicting Johanna. Sorry Mr. Bush, but if there is one thing I'd change about the DGITH scene, it's that I'd have someone attack Johanna with a Lady Schick before using the flame thrower.

Finally, as it's been a while since I first posted it, check out this clip of the director talking about how the DGITH scene was filmed. If you watch the whole interview (an extra featured on the DVD of American Grindhouse), Ellison comes across as a thoughtful, competent guy - not a schlock director out to make a quick buck. It sounds like the scene exceeded even the expectations of its creators - a happy accident so to speak.

* * * * *

Donny: As John Galt points out, spread eagle bondage (with or without rape) is not all that uncommon. Unfortunately, a lot of it involves a four-poster bed and a comfy mattress - which is not all that GIMPY in my book. Personally, my favorite spread eagle scene appears in Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS...

A near perfect scene... but yet another requiring the services of the Lady Schick Slasher.

To me, they're both about the same; a woman facing the ultmate peril. The only difference is the manner of their end. One of the two meets an end by fire, the other ultimately meets a freezing end. The AOH scenes are excellent otherwise. Just my two cents....

If it's just the girl, then the better AOH scene is DGITH since Brushay has a fitter body, but since we're talking about GIMP, Saw III is the better AOH scene since the blonde is in peril (tortured) for a longer amount of time before her demise.

*John Galt: Thank you for the list of recommendations. They all sound very interesting.

*Fritz: Thank you for the recommendation. I also agree that some scenes are a little less GIMPY.

*Poll Question: I think that those two scenes are almost a draw for me, because while Johanna Brushay's character probably had the more intense death, it was overall shorter than the fate of Debra McCabe's character, who was likely in that freezer for a very long amount of time before we even first see her. Additionally, Brushay's character was set on fire and that was it, it was over, while McCabe's character was already freezing before being repeatedly blasted with icy cold water on her unprotected, frozen body, which seemed like it was almost multiple tortures.

Finally, in the end, Brushay's character was essentially covered in flames, and you really couldn't see her responding to the pain, aside from the close-ups of her hands, which I thought added a lot to that scene. On the other hand, you could clearly see McCabe's character reacting to the multiple blasts of icy cold water which was a plus in my book.

I think Debra McCabe's scene could have been better if that blue tint wasn't used as much in the final scene.

Overall, though, I have to agree that setting a bound, naked person on fire makes more of an impact, so I have to go with Johanna Brushay's scene in Don't Go In The House.

Regarding a remake of Johanna Brushay's burning scene, I think it could be interesting if a capable filmmaker made a serious attempt at remaking it with today's technology. However, I would be concerned that whoever remade the scene might concentrate too much on the burning of the victim's body itself:

I think one of the things that really helped Don't Go In The House was that they concentrated more on the flames covering her body instead of the actual damage the flames did to poor Johanna Brushay:

Well, obviously I'm completely alone in this, but as I've stated before, I see no merit in DGITH so my vote goes of course to SAW III:

And since there two others polls as well, I'll answer it now cause they're shorter.

I don't mind bush or no bush. What matters to me is, it's pussy. If it's bushy pussy (wow, that rhymes), I can live with it cause I like this lady (Nia Jex):

But I'll be gay if I don't like what Adrianne Michelle has to offer:

So, yeah, bushy or not, it's fine with me. And as to who's more attractive between Johanna Brushay & Debra McCabe, in all honesty, it's a matter of taste. For example, I don't find Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, and Kate Winslet to be attractive at all, hence I don't find their nude scenes a turn on. But I find Elena Anaya, Amber Heard, and Emmanuelle Beart to be incredibly beautiful, so I love their nude scenes. It's a matter of taste. If u find JB to be more beautiful, you have a good taste. If you find DMC to be prettier, you also score yourself a good deal.

But considering DMC was 36 when the scene was shot, I'd say she definitely takes a good care of her body:

And I think she has quite the big natural bust too which is always a plus (pun intended). If she were a mother, she would be MILF. Though I don't know whether or not she got kids.

So, now, let's get back to the main poll.

First of all, the scene with Johanna Brushay is too short. And I failed to notice the so called dramatic build-up to this burning alive scene because we only see her struggle for no more than 10 seconds before cutting back to the killer, who is preparing himself, and then after that we go back to JB for a brief amount of time, and there she goes with a bang. So, in that sense, I consider this a failure of building a proper tension. It's done too quickly, and if my time count is right, it didn't even last 3 minutes.

I'm not saying this is a bad scene, but I do think it's a badly done and badly shot scene. It can be prolonged to 10 minutes (like the runtime of The Freezer Torture in SAW III), with JB being taunted about what could happen to her for a longer amount of runtime, but it didn't happen. And that's too bad, considering the situation & actress was perfect. I did hear, however, that they had to rush the shooting because it was freezing and JB felt so cold. If that were the case, then why not shoot it at daylight? Nobody would notice the difference, especially since it's done inside a bunker.

Now, as to why I obviously chose SAW III. I have talked about this before, but I'll say it again: this is how a torture scene should be done. Especially when it comes to GIMP, because this was done in a proper amount of time, and hence, it had everything a good GIMP scene could want:

i. Length, because the scene lasted 10 minutes. Enough preparation and delivery for a mainstream GIMP scene.

ii. Attractive victim with complete nudity.

iii. Good tension build up. And this is the thing that matters the most. First, when Jeff enters the freezer room, we are given a glimpse of what is standing there right in front of him:

And then as the light goes and the door locks automatically, we are shown what truly is there:

And there she is, suspended with nothing to cover an inch of her dignity. Not only we got a good shot of every part of her body, we also got to see she's struggling to defend herself from the irresistible cold. And if you take a closer look, not only her wrists are restrained with a metal like collar put underneath a circle of chain, secured with a padlock. Her feet are free, yes, but I think we got enough information to believe there is no way she can escape without other's help. She's at their mercy, that's another score for the GIMP:

And then we start seeing her beg for her life, how she's dying and how she can no longer feel her arms. This is what I call a good tension building: the victim in question offers us what her current condition is. This is also underlined by the fact that when Jeff came to the room, she showed no struggle against her restraints. That means she's been there for quite some time and her effort to break her was for nothing. At least so far. And we even see how Jeff failed to safe her the first time.

Then, we move on to the fact why she is put in this torture in the first place. So, she has to ask the help of someone she wronged in the past. Sure, we didn't see her before this scene, but at least her action and her current predicament shows what she's like in life, as Jigsaw said it: she's a coward. Then, we are given what her torture really likes:

As we can see, not an inch of her form was missed. Even her hair was forcibly made to freeze. We saw her struggle and scream, so although I don't really know which one is worse, burnt to death or frozen to death, I think we can all agree the process of being frozen to death is far from a walk in the park. Every cell of her body was made to stop against her will, that's a very frightening thing to receive no matter who you are. She even swallowed some of the water and forcibly puked them out after the first barrage started. As if she tried to lessen her own pain doing that.

We then saw how she tried to defend herself, see if Jeff can find the heart to help her. At least this scene didn't rush the development of her character, though she isn't a good person, she wants to live. Jeff ignores her plea and the second barrage rushes in:

This time, she only struggled as the initial reaction. Nearing the end of the torture, she stops doing anything and succumbs to whatever pain she must be experiencing. Though you may say this is not as worse as being burnt alive, this is slower than the process JB endured. And what's worse is, being so slow, there's also a psychological burden she must shoulder. Even the director said if it weren't for the way DMC sold the scene, the entire torture would have been a mess.

So, she made a final plea to Jeff, simply saying "Oh,'s so cold", weakly, when the final and the unstoppable barrage of water comes in. We did see her trying to move away once, we did see her scream after that, but we no longer saw her struggling. It's as if she almost gave up and left everything to Jeff.

And then, her torture finally ended. She slowly died of hypothermia as her body became solidly encased with ice:

And that's that. That's how I like my GIMP scene: clear, Hitchcockian, and deserving.

As for the blue tint problem, I don't know why it's such a turn on. It IS blue in every freezer room I've been in, which it makes it more realistic. I mean, just compare this:

To this:

I think the blue one definitely fits the scene and the mood more.

I have to concede to Mr O that Saw III is a much slower longer agonizing torture to death than DGITH but that was by design of the producer of DGITH, for that burning should have taken longer by at least 10 minutes because the nature of burning to death is longer and of course DGITH would be far more painful.

But if DGITH did it that how long can any Gimper stand to watch her burn to death and in Saw III her body shape and appearance stays the same but blue. Seeing a burnt up ugly scarred body is a turn off to me as would have been the case in DGITH.

I don't change my mind for still voting DGITH but other than how the gimps are bound how do you compare them to each other?

It's like comparing a Maine Lobster (SAW III) to Prime Rib steak (DGITH). I am going to have to rent SAW III real soon. Bill K.

Mr. O: Your assessment of Saw III (and the caps) pretty much covers it. All we need is for you to assign a grade to the movie (or the scene) and some tweaking from the Ralphus Editorial Department and I think it could be converted into an official review.

Nuts? Yes, definitely. However, in this case, I think you came up with an excellent idea. In fact, it probably would have improved the scene. Scalding someone with steam is a lot more visually exciting than spraying icy water at her. Seeing a bound young woman suffering as hot clouds of steam flood over her body, literally cooking her skin, is a very enticing image. Check out today's daily picture and tell me you wouldn't want to see something like that in a movie.


Poll update: Despite Mr. 0's lengthy dissertation as to the merits of the Saw III Human Popsicle scene, it's currently getting trounced in the voting by Don't Go In The House's Femme Flambe, 9-2. Lots more time to vote for your side; let's hear from more of you.

@A Canadian: I didn't give a grade cause we already had two reviews for the movie in this site. But, if I have to give the scene a far as mainstream movie goes, it is easily an A from me.

@Bill K: How JB & DMC compare to each other? Well, that depends on what subject they are going to be compared, really. Like I said, I think the ice one was slower and thus could be enjoyed for a longer amount of time. Of course the one JB endured would have destroyed her skin and made a rather unsightly view. At least with the water sprayed to DMC's body, it gives her the appearance of being wet, which is still a good presentation as it is closer to being in a shower.

@Bill K & Ralphus: About the prime rib comparison, I do think it can work, but not as an instrument of "torture to death" like The Freezer Room per se. It has to be an instrument of "torture to interrogate" as it would surely kill the victim quicker than the freezer would.

But overall, DMC's position & condition fit the scalding torture more than anything IMO. Just change the water hose with steam pipes and use it to extract information from the victim for like 10-15 minutes, and u got the best GIMP scene ever in any mainstream movie.

To reply to Bill K.s question.

Based on an informal shower poll, you are correct, most women do NOT "shave" there, though among American women currently in their 20s, the percentage who do, may approach as high as 25%.

One does not need to "shave" to model a bikini either, just narrow the bush a little with a bikini wax.

Donny: Yes, The Bone Collector did have a death by steam. It featured bondage, as your picture shows, and it also involved a fairly nice dramatic build-up. The victim also was fully clothed. Overall, it did not do much for me, to the point where I did not even remember it as a qualifying GIMP scene by the movie's end. But technically it was.

* * * * *

Lynn: An informal shower poll, huh? I don't doubt your estimates, and I appreciate the information, but there is an inquisitive part of me that wonders how many different showers that involved, and whether it was a large poll including many women in separate showers, or just the same shower with a limited number of the same women. Because I suspect socio-economic factors might also come into play. Plus, I would like to feed my fantasy some more.

Donny: As John Galt noted, The Bone Collector features a death by steam. However, I'm taking the opposite view of Galt and declaring it an EXCELLENT scene, not to be missed, unless you're squeamish about fatal GIMP scenes.

Olivia Birkelund gets taken to an underground steam tunnel by the bad guy. Her mouth is gagged with tape and she's handcuffed with her hands over her head. Lots of nice shots of her struggling helplessly as the bad guy loosens up a huge steam pipe and swings it directly in front of her, putting her right in line to take the brunt of a high pressure blast of steam that will instantly scald her to death, a very horrible way to die. The look in her eyes when she realizes what's going to happen to her is priceless. And that's why the scene is so damn hot, because in spite of the police scrambling to save her, it really happens. You don't actually see the impact, but they go in afterward and see her body still tied in the same position with the place still covered in steam.

Like I said, it's not a scene for everyone. If I recall, Brian's Pagers hated it, but then, they always dislike any scene where it ends badly for the woman. But it's a nice drawn-out scene, very suspenseful, and most importantly, it has a payoff. The only thing I didn't like: mixed-up casting. Angelina Jolie is featured very prominently in the scene, but (damn it!) she's one of the cops and not the victim. In fact, she's the one who investigates the scene and finds the victim, describing the scene of the crime and making special note about how she's tied.

A time to disappear a time to post.

It's October! We celebrated two birthdays, mine and Jac's. We also released Barbazul in three cities, four screens, which is becoming a tradition. Attacking our films is also a tradition here, and traditions must be respected. What would the world be without traditions? I ask myself.

We had a premiere, our second this year, with a lot more people than the previous one, Maleficarum. That's because we were lucky this time, the transportation mafia did not go on strike. People could actually get to the theater. Once again we had the pleasure of hearing a great applause at the end of the movie. We also heard all the laughs and the moans and the sounds of discomfort. The film causes a lot of feelings on people. I will talk about, with some comments we already have about this movie.

I also have very interesting news. Two of our films are going to be in festivals this coming November. Amy's first film Sirwinakuy and.... roll the drums please... Maleficarum!... yes, Maleficarum was invited, we didn't submit it. That was amazing news to us. More of that when we get confirmation of dates, etc.

We'll see how it goes with Barbazul, it's just taking its first steps. Maleficarum, however, doesn't stop surprising us. It's still on the top of our selling movies, it's number one, and going strong, surprisingly. We didn't expect it to go on and on after a year. But in fact, as we approach the first anniversary of its world release it feels like it's just began. Amy received a nice letter from none other than horror author Dean Andersson and I quote parts of it:

(...)Congratulations on BARBAZUL. Hope it's a solid success for you and everyone involved. Jac Avila looks very convincing. I look forward to seeing the film. But I am messaging you to share a MALEFICARUM experience.
I do occasional writer-guest appearances at Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror conventions, the usual promo things that I'm certain you and your colleagues must also do. On a panel discussion about horror films, an audience member asked if any of the panelists had seen MALEFICARUM. Sadly, forgive us, none of us so-called "experts" had. So, he gave an enthusiastic description. I knew, from other conventions, that this particular horror film fan had a low B.S. quotient, so I paid attention and took his MALEFICARUM enthusiasm seriously. I mean, he likes my horror, Dracula, and Norse woman warrior Heroic Fantasy novels, so he obviously has good taste, right? Right.

I ran into him again later at a convention party, and we discussed MALEFICARUM. It was soon evident the film had gotten through his horror-jaded, been there, seen that, thick outer crust, dragged him inside, and turned him inside-out, in a good way. He said he had not been expecting much. He figured it would be just another boring SAW or HOSTEL clone. But he claimed the quality of the acting, writing, cinematography, direction, the works, in MALEFICARUM had combined to make him care about the "victims" and "feel the horror from their viewpoint." That aspect, plus the unflinching theme of religion-sponsored violence and explicit depictions of torture and its effects, especially against strong women, had reminded him of my 1987 novel, TORTURE TOMB, although TT is not historical - well, it wasn't when it was written, anyway - and of the way it had affected at least one reader (and the way I suspect MALEFICARUM is affecting some viewers).

Dean wrote a lot more than that, and he did see the film later and has amazing comments about it. I'll post Dean's very personal review of Maleficarum soon. It's a very, very interesting read.

But that's not the only news that is coming from Maleficarum's reach out there. It's now in the Horror Society database and they will be reviewing it soon, as well as Film Bizarro who contacted us requesting to see the film because, as Preston says: Hello! (...) I read about your company after coming across one of your films, Maleficarum, and was very intrigued. Would it be possible for us to get a review copy of Maleficarum, or maybe a few other titles as well, like Sirwinakuy, Martyr or Le Marquis de la Croix? We'd love to review your company's library of titles on the site (...).

Something is going on out there that we're just becoming aware of. I think we reached a larger world with Maleficarum and it's beginning to show.

What does it say about our future productions?

More news sometime soon!

Prosecutors have pored through Harris's computer since he was arrested more than a week ago at Los Angeles International Airport after security officials found a veritable arsenal of weapons in his luggage, including a biohazard suit, billy clubs and a smoke grenade, as he traveled from Japan to Boston.

"Federal authorities say they've found pornographic videos and instructions on kidnapping people on his computer, suggesting he has "a strong interest" in sexual violence against girls, the Associated Press reports.

Joanne asked:

Silvio Dante's drawings are really great! Does anybody know where to find more of them at other sites than at the Drawing Palace site? Does he still make drawings?

The short answer is...I don't know. The only artworks I have by him are all branded with the Drawing Palace logo, so they might have exclusive access to his works. I haven't seen anything new from him in quite a while, which is a shame because his work is very nasty and over-the-top...which makes it very, very good. A lot of it gets kinda bloody and sick, some of which even turns my stomach so there's no way I could highlight it on the board.

I found this page that gives a sample from all 14 of his artwork stories. To my knowledge there are no others. BTW, it looks like Drawing Palace itself is down...I get a Forbidden message when I try to access it.


Margot and Amy: Wow, quite an endorsement to be getting praise from Dean Andersson, whose book "Torture Tomb" is one that I just recently referenced on this board as being one of my favorite books. I can't wait to read what he wrote about Maleficarum. Keep us updated.


Renzo Novatore: Regarding the man who had all those weapons with him on the plane to the US, all I can say is...what the hell, man! Did you get a look at the picture of all that stuff? A big ol' knive, a hatchet, handcuffs, duct did he get all that stash on a plane? (I mean, I keep all that in my glove compartment but that's different.)

BTW, that movie "Schoolgirls in Cement"...I've seen it. The real title is Concrete and it's about a gang of Japanese toughs who kidnap a girl and rape, abuse and torture her for weeks. She ends up dying so they put her body in a barrel, fill it with cement and then leave it out in a remote area. It's pretty grim stuff, especially because it was based on a true-life story in Japan.

Your Eminences Reine Margot and Lady Amy Hesketh: Great to hear that your initiatives are all moving along nicely. I'm saving my pennies and looking forward to the Halloween release of Le Marquis de la Croix.

IMO, the discussions about Maleficarum will continue for years to come (if not here, then certainly elsewhere). I regard the movie as a kind of unique event, not fully recognized at first but rather like an underground rumbling whose ripple effects continue to be felt. I feel very proud that there are those of us here who can say we were among the first to see it, and likewise feel proud of the role of this site in helping to bring it to the attention of the public. But mostly, I am proud of the cast and crew for their dedication and diligence in delivering this work of art to the world.

Now I'm no prophet, but I will offer this: back in the 1970's, I received a great deal of ridicule from my colleagues for predicting that the song Bohemian Rhapsody would be just as well-acclaimed, or more so, 30-40 years thereafter.

The daily pics by Silvio Dante are great. But I agree this guy produced some pretty grim stuff. I know what's in store for poor Lady Alicia, and if you choose to show the next images in this sequence, I'll bet it won't be more than another three or four panels. Still, compared to Dante's other female victims, Alicia fares better than most.

Dante's drawing style is quite recognizable and he also employs a number of recurring motifs. For example, the way Alicia is pole-tied in today's picture comes up in several of his stories. Here's another one:

That's fine by me, as I really like this method of GIMP transport. In fact, it's a shame it is not used more frequently in films. Offhand, the only movie I can think of in which a GIMP is carried this way is a Franco film - I believe it was Devil Hunter, but I'm not sure. Can anyone provide additional examples?

More Dante motifs include exotic and historical locales, impalement, skinning, POWs, roasting alive, and crucifixion. So far so good, but I don't care for others, like the racist undertones, excess body hair and scat. But the pros do outweigh the cons, so he's definitely one of my favorite GIMP artists.

I checked my Drawing Palace folder and as Ralphus points out, there are indeed fourteen Dante stories:

  • Caesar's Palace
  • Captured Nurses
  • Screaming Caribe Chicks
  • Executed
  • Fit to be Tied
  • Francesca's Ordeal
  • Motel Blonde
  • Roped and Branded
  • Royal Blood
  • Soft Captive Nudes
  • Strip Nude and Die
  • Torture Tunnel
  • War Trophies
  • White Captive

If anyone knows of any others, please do tell.

The Drawing Palace, now sadly departed, probably was the only site that dared publish his work. Many of their artists, including the long-lost Zell, gman and Scavenger produced some pretty OTT material - far more extreme than what DOFantasy and Erotic Illusions release today. I suppose artists like Silvio Dante have disappeared from the 'net because it has become unfeasible for them to sell their work and they don't care to post it for free at places like Deviant Art. If so, it's our loss.

Indeed it was Franco's Devil Hunter - the flick begins with a naked woman being chased by four tribesman who ultimately capture her and lug her through the jungle en route to sacrificial slaughter.

The same happens to Ursula Buchfellner, who is wearing nothing but a tattered pink dress (hard to see in this pic, but yep, she's in there).

I too would be interested in evidence of similar scenes.

Fritz: As YikYakker pointed out, you are correct that it was Devil Hunter, starring the beauticious Ursula Fellner, who was captured and carried by pole through the jungle.

However, it's been done a few more times on film. There's a brief scene, not filmed very well, in the film White Slave (aka Amazonia: The Catherine Miles Story). Even though actress Elvire Audray spends most of the film either totally or partially naked, gets raped and also penetrated with a wooden phallus during a tribal ceremony, this was her only bondage scene in the entire movie. Pity.

BTW, despite the fact that the bondage scene only lasts a few seconds in the film, the marketing department behind the film knew they had the exact image to use for the film's promotion. Behold, one of the greatest video box covers in the history of movies:

The movie Gwendoline was a film that was based on the artwork of John Willie. Willie was noted for his drawings of women tightly trussed in restrictive bondage, an aspect the film mostly ignored, which made it a huge disappointment for bondage lovers. (BTW, this is one of those bad movies I mentioned before that needs to be remade! ) However, there is one, again brief, scene where Tawny Kitaen and her friend are carried on poles by jungle tribesmen.

And if we're counting TV scenes, the TV show Angel had a similar scene with star Charisma Carpenter in the episode "Over The Rainbow". She is transported through the village on a pole and then the pole is laid to rest on a platform with her still tied to it. This is one to seek out, because she also gets tied up and tortured with medieval "tools" later on in the episode.

I'm like the rest of you who agree this is an outstanding method of transporting victims, even though it takes 2 men to carry her. I love the whole "women as captured animals" motif and agree it needs to be done a lot more.

Ralphus: MMmmm. The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik Yak. Now that was an awesome movie, primarily because of a wonderfully nude and luscious Tawny Kitaen. I was disappointed that Just Jackin, who did such a great job on The Story of O and Emmanuelle, did not deliver as well as I had hoped, especially considering the source material. On the other hand, I always thought Willie's bondage was more bondage for the sake of bondage (not that there's anything wrong with that), whereas I prefer bondage to be in the service of some nefarious deed, hopefully involving non-consensual sex. And I still don't get ponyplay.

I would love to see The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik Yak remade with an edgier story. John Willie's original comics--at least the ones I collected and read--were fairly high in camp, which made the Just Jackin movie pretty much in the same spirit as the comics. My opinion is that he was despairingly true to the source material. How likely is it that we'll get a modern filmmaker willing to make it darker and riskier than the original? I suppose we can hope.

Poll question: I think that Johanna Brushay in DGITH is the outright winner.

The way she struggles naked is incredible and she has a gorgeous body with beautiful breasts and full, hairy bush.

This is the only true burning scene of a naked women that I know of but in compensation it is fantastic and I would say perfect.

Thanks fellow GIMP-ers for the info about Silvio Dante's drawings! I have myself not found them anyplace else than at the Drawing Palace, I will check out the two other sites mentioned ASAP.

Another question: I like the stories written by the BDSM-author Cortez very much. I have found them at Alebeard's site RPP, and at BDSM Artwork and finally at BDSM Library. Are there any more sites where he posts his stories? Sometimes it seems there are slightly altered versions posted here and there, which I find most enjoyable.

There was a story site called Political Torture some years ago (it's down since long, sadly enough), where Cortez stories seemed to fit in very well. Does anyone know if there is a similar site some where out there in Cyberspace? :-)

Bill K: That pic you posted is not of a spit roast, but there is a fire in the scene. It's just in front of her. If they had lined the two up, they might have gotten an illusion that it was underneath her. They tried in one shot; it produced kind of a nice effect.

Anyway, that cap is from the Brutal Violence video called "The Elephant Man". There is actually some fire torture in that video. Later on in the video the bad guy takes a burning stick from the fire and burns her pussy with it.

There's also a fairly nice illusion where it looks like she's burning near the end. Another nice effect, even though they let on earlier that the fire is not close to her. Still looks good.

Until early 2008, there was a conglomerate of GIMP pay sites which featured both artwork and live-action videos. As I recall, they were expensive and each site required that you sign up for a recurring monthly membership which would provide access to that site only. Most featured high quality work, updated regularly and pushed the BDSM boundaries at the time. My CC statements indicated that the sites were based in Europe.

I can't remember all of them, but they included, (originally,,, and There were also femme-fight and femme-dom variants, and others I can't recall. I was a member of Drawing Palace - IMO, the best of the lot - for many years. I also signed up with most of the others for short periods of time. Although not all these sites provided what I was looking for, they didn't skimp on the GIMP, and both quality and quantity of updates were above average. Unlike most of today's BDSM pay sites, these rarely featured consensual scenes and had no annoying disclaimers.

Then about five years ago, one by one these sites shut down. Some, including Drawing Palace, continued to accept non-recurring memberships to their archives. In fact you could still sign up at DP until recently, but no new content had been added since 2008. They accepted CC billing through lc-pay, so it does not appear Visa or MC forced them to shut down.

Recently I received some second-hand information which may shed some light on the mystery. I'm told the gent that ran this multi-site operation did quite well for himself. At one point he supposedly had 6000 customers and was pulling in $190,000 per month. Apparently file sharing took its toll, and soon his membership had dropped by two thirds. It seems he retreated to his mansion in Holland and scaled back his business to cater to less risky fetishes.

He's still around, but now runs sites like this one. Scary stuff indeed.

Ralphus and YikYakker: Thanks for those pictures of pole-tied GIMPs on the move. I had seen all of these films (except the Angel episode), but except for White Slave, I had forgotten about the carry scenes. I remembered the White Slave cover - it's kind of hard not to - but got it mixed up with Devil Hunter, which led to my confusion over which Franco film I was thinking of. I know, I know... how could anyone ever confuse two Franco movies? Each one is so utterly distinct from the others.

Still, I have to admit the two pole-tied deliveries in Devil Hunter are among the best I've seen. The first is great because the unwilling passenger is naked, and also because she meets a rather nasty fate at the end of her journey. Ursula fares somewhat better in the second scene, but watching this gorgeous blonde being schlepped by the natives, her tattered clothes concealing almost nothing, was a real highlight. Sure, I would have preferred she met the fate of her predecessor, but if half the fun is getting there, at least I had half the fun.

The others are good scenes for what they are. Tawny, Zabou, Elvire and Charisma all look great, but are decidedly over-dressed for their travels. Their porters clearly are too inexperienced to realize that the goods must be stripped of all non-essential items (like clothes) to minimize weight on the long journey ahead.

Silvio Dante: After a long, bleary-eyed search through my own archives, I did uncover a Dante image from a sequence other than the 14 I listed below. It appears to be the last panel of a 7 page story, but I cannot find anything else about it. It probably has the word "taken" in the title, and seems to be one of Dante's savage tribe series. The rather ghastly demise of the heroine is typical of these tales, and because this image is bound to offend all but the most jaded pervs, I'm posting it as a link only. Before you click it, consider yourself warned.

So, for those who looked, does it ring any bells?

It's a great mystery to me why sites like brutalviolence go to the effort of trying to make convincing effects like burning, which is difficult to do well, yet they consistently have laughably loose bondage. The models often have to cling to the ropes to keep them from simply falling off. Why do they spend no effort on the quite tractable problem of tying the model up somewhat convincingly?

Ah yes, the always appealing pole carry technique - used since the dawn of time yet only brought to the American consciousness by the investigative reporting in the May 1966 issue of "Man's Story" - they even scooped "Time" and "Newsweek" that month - while on patrol along the Laotian border this was a fairly common sight - when confronted with such a situation some of our nobler soldiers radioed back to the CP - when they found we were three clicks inside Laos we were ordered to not engage - so we simply followed them back to the VC base camp, set up an observation post and viewed the festivities - I assume this was the Cong version of R&R - often wondered if I should have done more for the comely lasses and the answer always came up "nah" - war is hell.

Does anybody know where I could find a complete version of "Mole Men Versus The Sons Of Hercules" (also released as Maciste,The Strongest Man In The World ) which has the black servant girl torture scene in it. The black servant girl is tortured to make her already tortured boyfriend talk. In the scene: the girl is tied up (It looks to me that she is being stretched ) then someone comes with a hot poker (the poker look like a large spear ) and place it on her right breast. In my opinion, this is the best torture scene in the entire Sons Of Hercules series. Don't bother with Youtube. They don't have it.

Another film that I am looking for is "The Beast Of Budapest" (1958) In this film: a young girl is tied to a wall and her back is beaten with a club.You can find a still of this for sale at Movie Star News (which was run by the late Paula Klaw). In fact, you can see the still at their website which is .They have a large collection of bondage stills from mainstream movies. Also in "The Beast Of Budapest" there is a scene in which a woman is either being stretched or is being suspended.

One more thing, I once asked the late Paula Klaw "who tied up the girls in their bondage photos?" and her answer surprised me. She said SHE DID.

Question about the GIMP Poll (Johanna Brushay or Debra McCabe) results.

I noticed that some of you that thought that Johanna Brushay had the better GIMP scene also indicated that her few scenes of character development before being captured and killed was part of the reason why you chose her scene over Debra McCabe's scene.

Do any of you think your judgment of Debra McCabe's character (and her scene) would have been any different if you would have seen her like this first, with at least a couple scenes of character development, like Johanna Brushay's character had:

Being introduced to Debra McCabe's character like this, with absolutely no character development, gave the audience little reason to care about her as opposed to Johanna Brushay's character, who at least had a few scenes to make the audience care about her:

Did the lack of character development influence how you thought about Debra McCabe's character? Or is just that freezing simply isn't as "interesting" as being burned alive?

Regarding my statement about "blue tint" in Saw III, I agree that the tint does make it look more realistic. To clarify, what I meant to say is that it made Debra McCabe's scene kind of dark at times, and I wish the scene in the final film would have been just a little lighter. Of course, I'm sure part of the reason it was used was to help preserve some of Debra McCabe's diginity more. Even Johanna Brushay, in Don't Go In The House, originally wasn't supposed to be seen nude from the waist done, but apparently there was an "error" when making the VHS version which showed more of her (and of course, the unedited scene also appears on most DVD copies of the movie now as well).

I do find it kind of ironic how even movies such as these still seem to try to preserve the modesty of their actress, despite their agreement to perform fully nude. I guess I just miss the "old days" when actresses that performed nude really did allow themselves to be filmed without any regard to their modesty, like in the movie Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, where this actress is shown fully nude, the scene is well lit and they even panned up her body:

Both. I've already stated my preference for fire over freezing water. But regarding character development, I think it's very important to get to "know" the victim first. When I make my own edits of GIMP scenes for personal use, oftentimes I'll preface the actual GIMP scene with an introductory scene, showing her doing something that makes her more attractive to me. It can be as simple as showing her smiling or looking sexy in an earlier scene. I love women. They're so appealing in many ways, so it's not always about seeing her subjugated, at least not at first. A little foreplay beforehand makes the moment when she actually does become a victim all the more sweeter. Anybody else feel the same, or do you like to jump right into the action?

BTW, can we put a moratorium on the Saw III pics? I just counted 17 of them on the board and I think that's plenty.


Fritz: Thanks for another illuminating post. I didn't realize Drawing Palace was gone for good; that's too bad. So file-sharing (ie stealing) is what killed all those sites? Proof that uploading an entire series of an artist's works can be just as detrimental as uploading a producer's entire movie.

BTW, I have to correct one mistake you made when you said Brutal Violence was originally FunnyBDSM. Brutal Violence was the original site, and I know because I was a member there. I was only one month into my second year of membership when the change occurred...without warning and with no notification from the site to its current members. I quickly saw the weekly storylines go from...well, light comic and often consensual plots, which is NOT what I signed up for. I asked for a refund which was ignored, so I ended up having to eat about 400 bucks and got very little out of it. I stopped even going there because the new shows were so god-awful. I never found even one FunnyBDSM video that was worth downloading. They pretty much all sucked.

Overall, I didn't think the bondage was bad at Brutal Violence, at least when there was bondage. In some of their rape and forced blow job scenes they didn't tie the girl at all, which is almost always a mistake in my book.

Since they did a new movie every week, the quality wasn't consistent. Sometimes their movies were flops, mainly because the actress they used had too many tats, but a majority of them had at least one or 2 worthwhile moments. Some of them were quite original and exciting, such a burning a chick with a blow torch, using a staple gun on her or encasing her in a concrete block so that all her sexual parts could be accessed at will. Never saw THAT in a movie!

"Did the lack of character development influence how you thought about Debra McCabe's character" To answer that question for me I saw SAW I & II and all the victims, men and women, were bad people with a dark secret and bad past deeds, so I guessing SAW III was the same. The writers and producers of SAW series did this on purpose so we, the movie audience, wouldn't feel bad about any of the characters being cut up, burned up or frozen.

DGITH's cooked burned up victims were innocent women. I don't know about you guys but if the gimp is bad I find it, the torture (in my case burning torture) more erotic than if the gimp was an innocent school mom or florist.

I still enjoyed (pick) DGITH better than SAWIII because of the method of torture of burning to death.

Personally I like to see more Gimp SAW type movies of bad women getting what's coming to them which, in my case, is dungeon torture and followed by fiery endings. Bill K.

Ralphus: Correction noted. Although I thought FunnyBDSM came before BrutalViolence, my age-addled memory may be playing tricks on me and it probably was the other way around. Maybe I got duped the way you did and I'm still in denial. I do agree that BrutalViolence was hit-or-miss, but with enough hits to make it worth my while to stay around for a year or so. As you point out, some of the tortures were quite inspired, and I have two clips in which the heroine dies at the climax. In one, a pair of quack doctors kill her, and in the other, the victim is tried for witchcraft and burned at the stake.

BTW... I'm not sure all these sites disappeared because of file sharing. I'm told the owner was still making $50K a month when he closed shop, which seems like enough incentive to keep the business running. But perhaps he realized the glory days were gone and it was time to move into other high-demand markets - like teenage nubiles blowing their great grandparents (shudder). In any case, it appears many of these Euro-sites were being operated under one umbrella, and when it folded (for whatever reason) they first went dormant and now have vanished altogether.

You may be onto something here but maybe not in the way you think. Johanna does have a short intro scene, but it does not tell us very much about her character other than that she is a kind person who makes the fatal mistake of letting her killer into the flower shop after she's locked up. Debra's character is not given an introduction, but based on her dialogue it is clear she's a "bad girl" who has somehow aggrieved her would-be rescuer. We don't learn much about either woman, but the fact that we know one is innocent and the other isn't might affect how we appraise the two scenes. Some viewers prefer to see good-girl GIMPs suffer; others want to see victims who deserve their fate.

I have never heard about this supposed error. Do you have a source? True, we only see Johanna from the waist down after her killer blasts her with the flame-thrower, but if there was any attempt to censor the single shot of her pubic area, it's news to me. I remember seeing it intact in the theatre when the film first came out; it was on the VHS tape I owned, and it's on both the DVD Ltd. and Shriek Show digital releases I've seen. As the DVDs were not cut from the VHS source, what did or didn't make it into the tape version(s) is irrelevant. Given the shock-value of watching Johanna being consumed by fire, I doubt non-GIMPers paid much attention to Brushay's brush anyway.

*Ralphus: I also like when the movie "introduces" us (the audience) to the victim before putting them into a bad situation, even if it is just a few scenes like in Don't Go In The House.

*Bill K.: A very good point regarding the previous movies in the Saw series using mostly "bad people" as the victims, which might already influcence how the audience thinks of Debra McCabe's character.

*Fritz: Very interesting and I agree that knowing whether the victim is innocent or not may affect how those scenes are appraised.

Regarding Johanna Brushay being shown nude below the waist, I apologize for the misunderstanding. You are correct when you stated that Johanna Brushay is shown nude below the waist when she is first set on fire. What I was actually referring to are pictures and video clips on the internet, some of which have been posted here, that show Johanna Brushay early in her scene struggling while totally naked, and showing her nude below the waist, which wasn't how the scene was supposed to be shown. This is confirmed on the Shriek Show DVD release of Don't Go In The House, in the HIDDEN BEHIND THE MATTE feature, which shows this message each time you play the feature:

Director of Photography Oliver Wood asked that we present the film in it's theatrical ratio of 1.85:1
The full frame home video release was reproduced un-matted.
Here are two scenes that are quite REVEALING when the matte is removed.

Of course, the first scene that is shown is Johanna Brushay's burning scene, and it does show her nude below the waist early in her scene, when she first starts struggling. However, when you watch the movie on the Shriek Show DVD, which is presented in the correct 1.85:1 aspect ratio, you don't see Johanna Brushay nude below the waist until she is about to be set on fire, unlike many of the pictures and clips of this scene on the internet, which were made from older home video releases.

To clarify, here is a picture from John Galt's review, with the correct aspect ratio:

And a picture taken from an un-matted source:

Seeing Johanna Brushay nude below the waist early in her scene was the "error" that I was referring to.

@Donny: Um, no, the blue tint wasn't intended to preserve McCabe's dignity. The DVD interview said during the process of making the props, she did have to strip completely naked while posing with her arms over head so a plastic case can be made to give the effect of her frozen body, considering the time and work they need to do there I think dignity was the least of her problem.

Besides, you can clearly see her box area be it in the pictures or the scene when you play the movie. She hid nothing at all and in interviews I read or watched with her or about the scene (which sadly I cannot provide link to), both the actress & the director have stated she knew what she was signing up into and gave it her all during the shooting and the preparation of the scene. I did read somewhere that, although the chains are props made of plastic, her arms were really restrained overhead & the padlock was real so her painful reaction and struggle were actually genuine (although the freezer room was warm & the water sprayed are hot water you use in hot tubs).

Maybe her box area looks darker from the rest of her body because her feet wasn't forced to spread via restraint. I know her pussy can clearly be seen had she positioned that way, but the director & screenwriter avoided doing that so that she can struggle from her restraints and the spraying water even more wildly to better sell the scene. That's my POV, anyway. Hope this helps.

@Ralphus: I'm personally fine with either, as long as the scene is done carefully and correctly.

*Mr. 0: Thank you for the information, and I apologize for being unclear in my earlier post. I do realize that Debra McCabe was really naked during pre-production, and that her entire naked body can be seen during her scene in the final movie. What I meant was adding the blue tint later on (I think the tint was added in post-production, based on some Saw III publicity pictures of Debra McCabe on the internet that don't show the blue tint) made her body just a little more difficult to see than if there would have been no tint.

For example, I think that the lighting used during both Debra McCabe's Freezer Trap scene in Saw III and Johanna Brushay's burning scene in Don't Go In The House is about the same brightness, but from what I read, many people think that it is easier to see Johanna Brushay's body during her burning scene than it is to see Debra McCabe's body when she was in the Freezer Trap because Johanna Brushay's body was not "covered" with blue tint.

Makes perfect sense: hot = red; cold = blue.


A little bit of character development can be an asset to a GIMP scene. In fact, I generally like it when the GIMP scene is tucked inside a story line.

But I gotta agree with Mr. 0 - story and character development won't help a scene that is not executed or performed well.

This one is a long ways off, but just a heads up to those interested, I Spit On Your Grave Too, a sequel to the first remake, is headed for production. It's being made by the same director, and I know a lot of folks here were disappointed that the first one was far less explicit than the original. Still, maybe he'll do better this time? Sequels typically try to be bigger and badder than their predecessors in an effort to keep people interested in the franchise.

I've also posted a few concept pieces there on BDSMLibrary from my early start, and if you look around you should find them. I posted a short story earlier this year, but when I discovered that the BDSMLibrary format program didn't like my 2010 Word program, I decided, "Eh, I'll post somewhere else." I've put a couple things on that have gotten good reviews, and their site retains the fidelity of my fonts and characters better.

Cortez is/was one of the better writers on that site and did a good job stringing several short stories together. The concept itself wasn't original, but the execution was superb.

Just to clarify, I want everyone to know that I agree that the number one reason that Debra McCabe's scene was tinted blue was likely to make her appear much more cold than if there would have not been any tint added to the scene. I was just saying that by tinting the scene blue, it also caused her naked body to kind of "blend into" the background, which means that certain parts of her body are a little more difficult to see, unlike Johanna Brushay in Don't Go In The House, where her naked body clearly stood out against her background, making her body much easier to see. Again, I know that Debra McCabe's entire naked body can be clearly seen in the final movie, but that by adding the blue tint, I think it caused her body to "blend into" the background instead of clearly contrasting her background, like Johanna Brushay did in Don't Go In The House.

@A Canadian & Bill K: I actually did enter a blue freezer room, once, though it was mostly because of the blue tinted lights on the ceiling. It was in a restaurant that sells cake, so I can at least say blue colored freezer room actually exists. But I agree with A Canadian that it's done so to make the cold she suffers more "vivid" so to speak.

@Yik Yakker: Thank you, mate, as always. >_<

@Donny: Well, the "blending" part is a really interesting point, but I think the cinematography of the movie, as can be seen in the pictures in the previous posts, is set so that she appears under more light as opposed to the background so I don't know if it can be said that she was blending into the background so to speak. I think, more than the blue tint, the one that forces her to blend with the freezer room against her will is the chain restraining her wrists.

Machines of Terror 2 - Vanessa Fox

My latest story, with illustrations from Minos, is now posted in the stories section. This is the story of a young copy writer in a hi-tech industrial complex who wanders into a secret underground area, finds herself sexually excited by the things she sees, ends up in peril and very nearly dies. There is also a surprise in this story for readers of Machines of Terror 1.

*Mr. 0: Good point and I agree about Debra McCabe being filmed in a way so that she appears more under the lights as opposed to the background itself. And I apologize that I sounded like I was saying that Debra McCabe's naked body could not be seen in the final movie as a result of the blue tint, as that clearly is not the case. The only thing that I was saying was that the blue tint made it just a little bit more difficult to see her body. If you click the link under my username you will see a publicity picture of Debra McCabe without the blue tint and it should be clear how much easier it would have been to see Debra McCabe's naked body without the blue tint.

Regardless of the reason for the blue tint in SAW III, in my gimper mind it did not add to the eroticism of Debra McCabe's freezing scene peril but subtracted from it. I think they would have been better off just using soft natural light and the hell with if she looked like she was freezing or not. Saw III is not Avatar so realism does not win over eroticism. I'm going rent Saw III this weekend so I won't say anymore until I see it. Bill K.

@Donny: I know, I have seen those pictures before, and I agree of course it's easier to see her body that way. But I think ultimately the blue tint is what sells the entire scene.

@Bill K: But that's the point. The Freezer Room is meant to be a torture, so of course the director would have opted to erase any eroticism Debra McCabe might give to some people. The whole point of the torture isn't necessarily to expose her body, but more to show how much she has to endure during her torment. Of course there are people like us who prefer to see the eroticism in scenes like this, but since SAW III isn't a bondage production, of course the director would stray far from actual eroticism. I still think the scene is pretty erotic, though, even for her reactions alone. >_<

As far as believability goes, I think it's obvious SAW cannot be real. I mean, can people actually die like Debra did in the movie? LOL!

It's possible. Under the right conditions, a person can die from shock to the system brought about by hypothermia - a severe loss of body heat caused about by prolonged exposure to cold temperatures.

This is essentially what killed most of the victims of the Titanic - even those who wore life jackets or found something to float on could not survive long in that combination of wet and frigid conditions. The body and brain start to shut down to the point where people cannot even save themselves if they wanted to.

I've been in this situation myself (not tied up in a freezer, but experiencing hypothermia while on a mountain climb) and can certify that if help does not come quickly, a person can lose both the will and the capacity to survive.

Just a correction on my previous post...I meant to say that most of the deaths to Titanic passengers who ended up floating on the surface of the water -- as opposed to those who obviously drowned from going down with the ship, such as happened with the lower-class immigrants who were trapped in the steerage compartment, or those who were sucked down in the vortex -- were attributed to hypothermia.

Don't you all feel better now that that's been clarified?


So is the movie When Women Wore Tails as much fun as the poster makes it out to be?

Or even half as much fun as trying to say the German title three times in a row real fast?

Regarding Debra McCabe's character in Saw III, I always thought her character actually died by suffocating. Obviously she had been exposed to extreme cold for a long amount of time, and later blasted with freezing cold water, which eventually resulted in her naked body being covered in ice. However, even after her body had been completely covered in ice, before Jeff left the freezer, it appeared as though she was still alive, based on the fact that she broke some of the ice around her eyes, which caused Jeff to make one last attempt to free her from the chains. If correct, this meant that despite all the freezing cold that she endured, she may have ultimately suffocated to death. Can anyone confirm this?

Now, I don't watch much TV and don't subscribe to any premium cable channels. So I was unaware of a show called Femmes Fatales until an acquaintance sent me a clip from an episode called Crazy Mary. The action takes place in a psychiatric treatment facility, but because the clip did not have audio I'm not certain about the storyline. But just based on observation, I've supplied the caps below with a script that seems like a reasonable interpretation of what's going on:

Naked Nurse: Oh, doctor, it really turns me on when you strap me down to the operating table and run your strong, nimble hands over my bare flesh. I'm so glad we agreed to take a break for some hot consensual bondage...

Doctor: Uh...consensual. Right.

Naked Nurse: ...and isn't it great how Cinemax is letting the TV audience see my pussy? Oh God! An intruder with a big stick!

Doctor: Shit! It's one of my patients, Crazy Mary...she has assumed the personality, clothing and weaponry of a serial killer she passed earlier in the hallway. Stay right here, I'll try to talk her back into her cell. (Whap! Whap! Whap! Crazy Mary beats the doctor to a bloody pulp!)

Naked Nurse: Oh, crap on a crust! She's killing the doctor! My ass is grass if I can't break free of these restraints that I so consensually and ironically allowed him to put me into not more than five minutes ago.

Crazy Mary, please don't GIMP me! Have mercy!

Crazy Mary: Don't worry, Naked Nurse. With his dying words, the doctor helped me remember who I really am. And the flashbacks on the TV screen showed that I became this way because of a history of harsh treatment by abusive men.

So I won't kill you. But I'm going to leave you naked and bound so you have an alibi for the murder investigation. I just need to borrow your cap and uniform so I can sneak my crazy ass out of this loony bin.

Anyone have some observations about Femmes Fatales? Is this kind of thing typical of what they offer?

Donny you asked, "She may have ultimately suffocated to death. Can anyone confirm this?" Cause of death CSI would say "respiratory failure due to whatever caused her to stop breathing".

Anything that causes (in this case freezing gases) stopping air from getting to the lungs and makes her stop breathing can be considered suffocation. Drowning is suffocation, choking is suffocation, most bats victims choke (suffocate) to death

But in crime gimp movies suffocation is only used in choking or and smothering to death. Bill K.

YikYakker asked:

So is the movie When Women Wore Tails as much fun as the poster makes it out to be?

When Women Had Tails is an extremely silly slapstick comedy about cavemen who trap a strange animal, looking very similar to them, only softer and with longer hair. She's played by the beautiful and scantly attired Senta Berger. They've never seen a woman before and make all kinds of comments about how tender her skin is and how tasty she'll be. They stick a lemon in her mouth (probably the first fruit gag in movie history) hang her up on the pole and get ready to roast her.

She makes all kinds of mmpphing noises so the one caveman takes out her lemon gag. She explains that she's a woman and she's not supposed to be eaten. She convinces him to untie her and to get on top of her and "play" with her. When he discovers how much fun that is, he decides to keep her. She's tied up and lemon-gagged at least one more time in the movie.

Since it's a comedy it's not exactly serious GIMP, but I liked it enough to include it in one of my highlights tapes. It's available on DVD in my Homepage URL, although one of the reviews mentions the print is pretty bad.


Insomniac: Nice find on I Spit On Your Grave Too. I'm one of those who didn't totally hate the remake, although it was decidedly less explicit than the original film. But the sequel sounds a lot better, and here's why. Let's read the synopsis again:

Naturally beautiful, Jessica has just settled into New York where she, like many other young women, is trying to make it as a model. But what starts out as an innocent and simple photo shoot soon turns into something disturbingly unthinkable!

Okay, I'm already intrigued. Naturally beautiful? They don't get much hotter than Sarah Butler, the star of the remake. So this director at least has an idea about good casting. And disturbingly unthinkable? That might just be teasing prose, but the word "disturbing" is usually a good sign for GIMPers.

Raped, tortured, and kidnapped to a foreign country, Jessica is buried alive and left to die.

Okay, the rape I would expect. But tortured? That sort of implies bondage. If you're going to inflict pain on someone, she likely has to be restrained somehow. And the foreign country thing immediately inspires visions of Hostel: Part 2.

And then buried alive and left to die? That's a scenario that's rife with possibilities. Buried in a coffin and gasping for air? Or thrown into an empty grave and covered with dirt until she's covered up? Either prospect sounds exciting. Fingers crossed, of course, but this movie has a chance to be quite good.

to Yik Yakker: I have seen some of the Femme Fatale shows, the producers generally are worried about getting the actresses naked and then laid, not much GIMP that I've seen. There is another GIMP scene that I noted; it involved a new government assassin who is captured by enemies and interrogated, but she is locked, with clothes on, in a chair, and then electro-shocked until she gives up her employer. Could have been a LOT better, but I guess even late night cable shows have their limits...

It's going to be spring around here, good time to post.

As the end of the month approaches, we get a lot of surprises, not only Dean Andersson discovery of us, that led him to view some of our films... and he has a lot to say about them all, but also more interesting news about how our films our doing elsewhere.

Well, Barbazul's theatrical run was rather short, two weeks, normal for any movie. It seems that we did a lot better than some blockbusters, like Dredd, and we beat Luc Besson at the box office, but we didn't go over what we did with Maleficarum. The theater programmer said that it was a weak week for everyone because of many unrelated reasons, one of them being the end of year for universities, so they are all in graduation parties, and exams, another reason was that the national team had TWO games locally for the qualifiers to the world cup ... and that kind of information wasn't available to us. What? there's futbol here? What's futbol? We're that kind of people and we don't have any university or high school student near us so we don't really know what's going on in the world altogether, we don't even know who Pitbull is and why 12,000 souls put their money to see him rather than going to the movies. Oh well.

But the news are not bad, nevertheless. Maleficarum is going to be in a festival on November 13th, Tuesday the 13th!, which is the South American equivalent of Friday the 13th. Maleficarum is nominated for best film, best direction and best acting for the Festival Nacional de la Cultura, a national festival that takes place in the pretty nominal capital of Bolivia, Sucre, every year. Jac doesn't believe we'll win anything because the jurors will be too shocked to see the qualities of the film itself, but it's nice to be nominated and part of the competition.

If that's not enough, on November 17th Sirwinakuy will be at the Best of CineKink in Chicago and to make things even more interesting, the 16th, Martyr is going to be the subject of a "Conversatorio" a film discussion on Semiotics at the University of Oruro, with Jac in attendance, of course. The organizer of this discussion wrote his thesis on Jac's film. Which goes to show that Martyr is a very intellectual film. It was the subject of a conference in Sienna university in New York, someone is writing a book about it and now this. This Conversatorio will be repeated in two other cities.

Rodrigo, the writer of the 111 page thesis, justified the use of Marty or The Death of Saint Eulalia saying that "La muerte de Santa Eulalia, is a film that plays with images and short dialogues in such a way that it's highly attractive for semiotic interpretation", he also says that it deals with "reality, symbolism and the imagination as described in the model by Jaques Lacan".

And we're moving fast to release Le Marquis de la Croix on October 31st. We have the UNCENSORED TRAILER OF Le Marquis de la Croix on our site. You can pre-buy the DVD HERE, We'll start shipping on Monday 27th.

Ralphus Margot and Amy: Wow, quite an endorsement to be getting praise from Dean Andersson, whose book "Torture Tomb" is one that I just recently referenced on this board as being one of my favorite books. I can't wait to read what he wrote about Maleficarum. Keep us updated.

This is what Dean wrote, yes, we're on first name basis now, he published a less person to person version in the Maleficarum page at IMDB, what follows is what he wrote to Amy:

Amy - I downloaded Maleficarum and just finished watching it. That fan I talked to at the convention - he did not praise the film enough. It was so much more than even I had expected. I'm not a filmmaker, so I'm not sure just how Jac pulled it off, but one thing I do know is that you and Mila totally sold it. Incredible. Look, I'm sitting here with tears drying on my face. That is impossible. I've watched so many films. They almost never strike that deeply.

You two and Jac's direction made the women's plight so horribly believable, so real, and yet heroic.

Several scenes are going to keep replaying in my head. The moment when Mila's character was looking up at you, and she almost said okay to the confession, then turned and spit at the Inquisitor instead, I felt like cheering, even though I, and she, knew it was going to mean even more horror. And the scene where your character was over the fire while Mila's character kept begging, "Enough!" with her face twisted by anguish for you, but the men, like statues, ignoring her, painted a perfect picture of impersonal authority that unfortunately doesn't stop in our world with the historical Inquisition.

And the scene where they allow her to sit and you crawl to her and she strokes your hair, there was such love in that scene, how could it help but tear at a viewer? And then your agonizing crawl to her after your rape, you made each movement seem so hard, so painful, but your wounded character was so heroically determined, I felt like shouting "Somebody HELP her, damnit!"

I guess you could say that by then I felt very "involved." And your character's prolonged burning - have you seen Oliver Reed's death by burning scene in Ken Russell's THE DEVILS? I always loved Reed's work, but I swear you could have taught him some new tricks. Really. I kept hoping someone would rescue you in time. But it went on and on as the flames slowly grew - then the surprise ending, very satisfying, (SPOILER ON ITS WAY) and even though your character was scarred and crippled, the two women survived! And triumphed. Excellent.

You mentioned that the director's cut had uninterrupted torture scenes, but I think having the torture scenes interrupted by the "reality show" testimonies and flashbacks kept the viewer from becoming numb to the brutality of what was happening. Still, yes, I'd like to see Jac's director's cut sometime to compare them.

But if he feels as I do about the insanity of the Inquisition, and I'd guess from the film he just might, you can tell him that in my opinion he drove that message clear through the wall and out the other side. Obviously, everything about the film (even that incredible choice for music during the tortures - sweet piano chords? Brilliant contrast! And their repetition became a little like Chinese water torture to the ears) left me very impressed! Thanks so much!
I was just stunned by the effect that the film built. And to me it portrayed the brutality and insane profiteering injustice of the Inquisition in particular with such unrelenting veracity.

The moment when Mila's character was looking up at you, and she almost said okay to the confession, then turned and spit at the Inquisitor instead
And the scene where your character was over the fire while Mila's character kept begging, "Enough!" with her face twisted by anguish for you, but the men, like statues, ignoring her, painted a perfect picture of impersonal authority
And the scene where they allow her to sit and you crawl to her and she strokes your hair, there was such love in that scene, how could it help but tear at a viewer?
And then your agonizing crawl to her after your rape, you made each movement seem so hard, so painful, but your wounded character was so heroically determined
And your character's prolonged burning - have you seen Oliver Reed's death by burning scene in Ken Russell's THE DEVILS? I always loved Reed's work, but I swear you could have taught him some new tricks. Really.

Later on he wrote: Speaking of Maleficarum, yes, certainly, quote away my response to it. That movie has staying power. I kept thinking about it, so I watched it with the commentary on last night. I'd thought of several things I wanted to mention to you, but you and Jac beat me to it. After listening to your descriptions of making the film, I am even more impressed in many additional ways. For example, I kept wondering what kind of deep and hopeless darkness you had to get in touch with to play some of those scenes so convincingly, because I remembering how rough it was dredging up and facing that sort of interior darkness to write some of the scenes in Torture Tomb and Raw Pain Max.

Not to mention what you put yourself through physically. I'd assumed some CGI and skillful FX. And the idea of your researching, making, and building the devices with which you were going to be tortured, then also the costumes, and even digging the hole for your own stake...tour de force doesn't even come close. But it all paid off. It ended up creating a convincing "documentary" and condemnation of real life horror. I wish we could do a Midnight in Paris time-slip and show it to the Surrealists in the '30s, or later. It would knock Bunuel's socks off, and he would bow down in homage! That's certainly the way it affected me.

That last comment about Bunuel made Jac's day and maybe even his year. We now believe that the fires of Maleficarum are spreading and lighting up a perfect fire storm. It's no coincidence that the festival programmers in Sucre decided to show it on the night of Tuesday the 13th, the night of horror for South America. It's after all, now officially, a horror movie, more than anything else.

The success of Maleficarum is not only ours, it's yours too. You all have been a part of it from the start, beginning with Ralphus, our associate producer, who contributed both with ideas and hard cash, plus all the feedback and support we got from this forum. To be totally honest, we didn't expect to ever have a theatrical release or be in festivals or getting reviews anywhere outside our fan base. It's like Beto, the great inquisitor himself, who says that Maleficarum is the spearhead to the future. He is right. We're at a different place from the time we began this project and we'll see what the future brings... in fact, we're working on that future.

YikYakker: Your Eminences Reine Margot and Lady Amy Hesketh: Great to hear that your initiatives are all moving along nicely. I'm saving my pennies and looking forward to the Halloween release of Le Marquis de la Croix.
IMO, the discussions about Maleficarum will continue for years to come (if not here, then certainly elsewhere). I regard the movie as a kind of unique event, not fully recognized at first but rather like an underground rumbling whose ripple effects continue to be felt. I feel very proud that there are those of us here who can say we were among the first to see it, and likewise feel proud of the role of this site in helping to bring it to the attention of the public. But mostly, I am proud of the cast and crew for their dedication and diligence in delivering this work of art to the world.
Now I'm no prophet, but I will offer this: back in the 1970's, I received a great deal of ridicule from my colleagues for predicting that the song Bohemian Rhapsody would be just as well-acclaimed, or more so, 30-40 years thereafter.
Too bad I didn't put some money on that claim.

I agree, Maleficarum has, still, a long road ahead, we saw the possibilities of festivals and conventions. We are posting about this in Pachamama Films. Jac has a theory, developed after years and years of working in films, which he calls Cinergia. That's the inner force a film has once it has reached certain point. Before that we, filmmakers, are the strength of the film, we make it, push it up the hill, but at some point, the point of Cinergia, the film has its on force and it takes it from there. That's what's happening with Maleficarum. It has taken its own force and it's going places.

Le Marquis de la Croix is going to be in our VOD store on October 31st, 2012, marking it's official release to the world, but we just put in our DVD store for pre-order this amazing movie directed by none other than the renowned queen of scream Amy Hesketh who made this tale to exhibit Zynga (Mila) a wretched creature taken from one misery to the next; the toy of villainy; the target of every debauch; exposed to the most barbarous, the most monstrous caprices; who is there in the depths of the night, her clothing, laying in shreds and ribbons, totally naked, several parts of her body lacerated, clawed; without resources, without honor, without hope, exposed to every peril, driven witless by the most brazen, the most specious sophistries; prey to the most cunning seductions, the most irresistible subornations, facing the most barbaric refinements of misery, placed in the most extraordinary situations, only as De Sade would conceive and write using the most dreadful maxims, the most energetic brush strokes, with the sole object of obtaining from all this one of the sublimest parables ever filmed for human edification.

We have the UNCENSORED TRAILER OF Le Marquis de la Croix on our site. You can pre-buy the DVD HERE, We'll start shipping on Monday 27th.

Bill K. Speaking of Amy, Mila and Margot that great wonderful news that you guys are going to do another bats movie for sure, much sooner now then later. And with other gimp horror movie producers now taking interest in Maleficarum we maybe see a bats movie from them too. I am betting your will be the best for sure. Bill K.

Amy is very enthusiastic about the BATS scene in her next directorial adventure. A movie where she will also play the lead role, with the supporting roles of Jac and Mila, Beto will be around too, and Eric, of course. A story I'm sure will have its own impact when it comes. In fact, she has two scripts on the works for next year. We'll be talking about this a lot in this forum.

Jac also has his own stories to tell, and one involves a really nice looking rack which will have to be built. But that is for next year. After the release of Le Marquis de la Croix he'll get busy with the post production of Dead But Dreaming, a film that is looking very, very good. I think our new found reputation in the world of horror movies will help move Jac's GIMPy vampire saga to great heights.

Well, that's it for today. I'm sure I'll have more great news in the very near future. I leave you with a scanned picture of a page layout of Barbazul. It was published last week in a glossy magazine, Ecran, dedicated to major movies like Skyfall, the new James Bond flick. It was nice to see they covered our movie.

Until next time!

He responded so that email address might still be good. There might also be a mention of his publisher on his profile.

Hope this helps.

In the spirit of Halloween, I'm linking a short story I did in the vein of "Hostel" but with a twist at the end that seems to resonate well with readers. Hopefully you folks will enjoy it, too. Nothing supernatural, I'm afraid, which kind of makes it even creepier.

Reply to Yik-Yakker's question re "Playing With Fire"
It's downloadable at Surreal Movies (in two versions last time I checked" lousy sound quality, great picture quality... and vice-versa).

Along with Ms Kristel, the movie (wonderfully perverse IMHO) stars the equally gorgeous Anicee Alvina, who also tragically died way before her time.

I've finally finished another story, posted in the fiction section. It's called The Martyrdom of St Catherine and tells the story of St Catherine of Alexandria, a beautiful noblewoman who refused to renounce her Christian faith despite being flogged and tortured on a spiked wheel before finally being beheaded. I've included a few embellishments - including one I read at university about her being forced to strip naked while debating with the emperor's best theologians.

It's pretty long and I guess it may be too brutal for some tastes - and I'm sure there are loads of anachronisms, particularly with regard to names - but hopefully it'll provide some entertainment for some of you.

When legendary actress and sex symbol Sylvia Kristel passed away recently, she was fondly remembered for her signature role, Emmanuelle, which brought her international stardom. But just a year after being cast in that film, she also appeared in a movie called Playing With Fire, which might have been the only legitimate GIMP role in her career. I had never heard of the film, but after some searching, I was able to locate a copy online (it's sadly not available on DVD). My print is in Italian language with no subtitles, so explaining the plot might be a stretch. But I'll give it my best shot.

Kristel herself is not the lead actress; in fact, she's only in a handful of scenes midway through the film. The real star is a beautiful young actress named Christine Boisson. And this movie shows her off quite thoroughly. With this being a French film shot in the 1970s, naturally there is abundant nudity, all involving some lovely young women. And to make it even better, there's lots of bondage and kinkiness from start to finish.

In fact, the very first scene of the movie shows Boisson captured at a train station by 2 men. They prevent her from taking the train, then she's whisked away to an abandoned tunnel under the tracks. Once they have her alone, they open up her top, grope her naked breasts and then swiftly tie rope around the upper part of her body.

When she cries for help, they gag her with a white cloth over her mouth. The next thing you see, she's been locked into a basket and carried away, presumably to a life of sexual slavery, or so it seems. And this is even before the opening credits!

Turns out the kidnapping was a fake, though, because after a ransom call to the father, she is discovered right back in her bedroom. She's safe...for now, but the bad men are after her. Apparently they're involved in sex trafficking and she's not their only target.

And the bad men are still bad men who do bad things, so it doesn't take long before another woman is attacked, this time in broad daylight. This time it's a lovely redhead; they pin her arms over her head and run a knife inside her bra. They don't cut her there but instead they lift up her skirt and slice her a couple times on her leg.

There's another scene involving a black singer in a nightclub. The men scope her out, then as she's leaving, they literally throw a net over her and carry her inside. When we see her next, she's been stripped and one of the men prepares to sexually molest her, right through the net. The scene cuts away before we see that happen.

About an hour or so into the film, we first see Sylvia Kristel. She is spotted in a nightclub and lured away from the crowd by telling her she has a phone call. And this leads to a scene where she is shown tied standing with her hands tied out in front of her to a beam on the ceiling. There are tears in her eyes as she pleads with one of the men. They untie her, but they're not through with her.

When we see her next, she's now tied on her back with her hands behind her, laying on a bed of straw in a warehouse. Her dress has been pulled down so she's now topless, and her face is still stained with tears. It's a very appealing look indeed. The men then grab her legs and tie them apart to stakes that have been nailed in the ground. She cries and begs as one of the men straddles her, rips off her panties and prepares to burn her chest with a lit cigarette. And her ordeal is captured by a photographer taking pictures, presumably for prospective clients.

This is followed by a scene where she again being photographed (topless) then led into a room by one of the men. The door closes and you hear her scream; apparently she's being sexually attacked. The last time we see her, she's on her knees and naked and is now being used as someone's sex slave.

Upon discovering there is a whole harem of naked women being used against their will, Boisson runs away and tries to escape. She's chased back inside the brothel by trained dogs and captured. And then she's returned to the bad men inside the basket we saw her in during the opening scene.

They open up the basket to find her covered in a couple of sheets; that was just for packing purposes, though, because when she's unwrapped, we discover she's already completely nude with her hands tied behind her. She wises off to one of the men, so he merely snaps his fingers and a thug appears to literally pick up the bound naked woman in his arms and carry her away. How awesome is that?

That's basically all the GIMP scenes, although Boisson is again abducted off the street in the last 10 minutes and held captive in a car during the car chase that concludes the movie.

Even without English subtitles to follow the action, it's evident that this film is a lot of fun. In a small role, Sylvia Kristel is entirely believable playing a victim; it's too bad she wasn't cast in more roles like this in her career. But obviously, there's lots more here for fans of naked women in peril. It's a time capsule example of the way movies used to be made back in the 1970s, back when female nudity and misogyny were plentiful on the silver screen, a far cry from the restrictive output we see today. If you can locate this film, it's well worth the search.

My grade: B+

Wonder if Witch Hazel will give me a slice of silicone?

This is what I have been working on for 6 weeks MaX CoXXX My first members site is open for biz. Starting tomorrow there are 100+ updates over the next 5 months. This is obviously just my Visa allowed content.

If you're looking for a different type of movie, may I suggest:


Introducing Trinity St.Clair

Alexandria, Rock & Brock

A couple of cheerleaders are talking about how their friends are missing. Then a knock at the door for dome pizza is an assault. The girls are captured, chloroformed, cuffed, gagged & carried out.

Back at the attackers basement the girls are belly punched & beat. We find out the girls have hurt one of the attackers sisters. Now its payback.

They K/O both girls & leave them over night. When they come back they beat them more. Then they put the blond on the X & whip her bloody. They get a call from a friend who want to buy the blond. They sell her.

The black haired girl is next. She is electrocuted. Then she is thrown down & raped in the ass while being forced to suck cock. The attackers blow their loads on her. One gagging her with repeated loads of cum shot down her throat. Then she is strangled to death. Her tongue seems to protrude as she is being strangled.


Good Hunting

Ralphus: Nice work on the official Ralphus Review and caps of Playing with Fire. It seems a little odd to read a review that doesn't include a link to an official seller but I guess being moderator has its privileges.

I may try to track the movie down through sources that are somewhat "sketchy," as your president might say.

Grade B-plus is about right for "Playing With Fire" - if you average the C-minus plot with the A-plus nude bods of the various cavorting demoiselles. The plot could be vaguely called an avante-garde melange - as in elements of "Story of O" mixed with a dash of "Eyes Wide Shut" with J-L Trintignant as a grade Z Lemmy Caution thrown in; in truth it makes Robbe-Grillet's most famous script, "Last Year at Marienbad" seem Dick and Jane simplistic by comparison.

But the women?!

Besides Anicee Boisson is also the perfect Christine Boisson who totals even more skin-screen-time than Boisson. Boisson, lest we forget, burst on to the scene as Kristel's BFF in "Emanuelle".

Great frame lifts - hat's off - that's a lot of work.

If I may, I'll add a couple: the blonde is either dead in a nest of feathers or slathered with tomato sauce on a bed of rice, ready to be served as lunch to some off-screen, never seen villains.

Lucky Philippe Noiret gets to fondle Boisson, then bathe her, then strangle Boisson, and lay her out in a feather-lined coffin (I think), it's all very confusing.

P.S. I've added a couple of images from Robbe-Grillet's "La Belle Captive". I wonder what that's about...

Margot / Amy Question about "Le Marquis de la Croix" is the language going to be same as Maleficarum for the trailer was in English but Vermeer site said English subtitles. I believe the story takes place in Europe France so what is the language to be spoken in the movie? It will not make a different in if I buy or not just curious for as said before screams and cries are the same language in every country. Bill K.

Happy Halloween! I hope everyone spends it safely :)

Ralphus - Thank you so very much for the promotion at the top of the site for Le Marquis de la Croix! And the banner link this week as well, coolness.

Le Marquis is now up in the VOD Store and the DVD Store at VermeerWorks and Redfeline and we've also dropped the prices of a lot of the other movies especially for this release!

And the uncensored trailer is up HERE!

Bill K. - Le Marquis is mostly in English with a bit of Spanish. The English subtitles are there for the little bit of Spanish, and we have Hearing Impaired subtitles as well, also there because not everyone understands Jac. He has a bit of an accent, ya know?

I now have a desperate need to see Playing With Fire after reading Ralphus' review. I'm a huge fan of Alain Robbe-Grillet. Gradiva and La Belle Captive are great if you like crazy French films with surrealist imagery. And I am a fan of that.

I believe big silicone boob jobs are great like in the picture that was posted in SDamsels forum by Bobprometh today:

Happy Halloween.

Any real gimp torture scenes out there that use that method and torture look out there on the www. Bill K.

Ralphus, if I want to post pictures here, how do I do it? Bill K.

Here's an update on some of the stuff I'm tracking in the Japanese porn world.

In the coming days, I will post a review of Secret Female Investigator 2 (SOE-848), with Yuma Asami. I have already capped the film. Now, I just have to finish writing the review. All that's needed is a little discipline, I guess....

There are a couple of other films I want to see in November. One is IPTD-981, where Rio plays a teacher who is raped.

The other one I want to check out is SOE-854, with Akiho Yoshizawa. That one is about an airline stewardess who is kidnapped and raped.

And with the Japanese companies now announcing their December titles (Attackers will announce its December titles next week), I'm starting to get a pretty good idea how this year will conclude. Which means I already have some idea what next month's Year in Review might look like.

The time goes by so quickly.

This is too long for me to watch (48 min) so I can't describe what it's about, but there is a chair tie, tape gag, and some nice groping in the 2nd half of a nice blonde.
