Move over Weng Weng, there’s a new dwarf in town.  He’s more menacing than Warwick Davis in Leprechaun, and an even bigger bastard than Eric the Midget from The Howard Stern Show.  He’s Olaf the dwarf -- a pintsized villainous force to be reckoned with.

Our star of the show is little man Olaf, played by Torben Bille a former children’s entertainer turned cinematic sociopath.  Evil Olaf lives with his alcoholic mother and helps her run their skuzzy “rooming house”, where he lures young lasses back with his toy dog.  Once inside he takes them to the attic where they are incapacitated, awaking to find that they are naked and chained.  In order to prevent his slaves from attempting escape, this sinful dwarf injects them with heroin creating an insatiable addiction to junk.  This affords the ultimate underground sex slave operation.  In order for the girls to score, they must turn tricks for schmack.  “Just ring the door when you are finished” Olaf gurgles to one of the John’s just before he selects his captive-whore.

Mary (Anne Sparrow) and Peter (Tony Eades), a down on their luck married couple decides to move into this motel hell for a while, unbeknownst to them the goings-on in the attic.  While Peter is off finding writing gigs, Mary sits back in their room trying to pass time.  The malevolent midget and his mother have their eyes set on Mary so they concoct a scheme which gets Peter to go away for a couple days on business.  This allows the evil mother-midget duo to entice Mary into the attic, and next thing we know she’s amongst the naked chicks in chains.  Meanwhile the unwholesome viewer secretly cheers with guiltily glee at the fact Mary is in such a vulnerable, yet naked predicament.  Will Peter return to decipher this cathouse conundrum?

The Sinful Dwarf is a total delight for sleaze enthusiasts.  The film was written by my estranged father William Mayo, who was kicked out of Denmark for writing such filth, to later bunk up with my mother who was knocked up shortly thereafter.  Thus creating myself, the purveyor of filth from which you read this review from today.  Aside from my father writing the film being its highlight, Torben Bille portrays one of the greatest sickos in cinematic history.  Being a dwarf makes him all the more enthralling.  When you see his half retarded/half psychotic grin, eyes bulging out as he garbles some dialog you’re in disbelief that this guy is acting.  You believe Torbin Bille is Olaf, The Sinful Dwarf.  When Olaf’s not up to his whorehouse mischief, he’s spying on Mary as she’s screwing her husband, or changing clothes.  Nudity abound.  Pure sleaze.  Pure bliss.

The Sinful Dwarf also exists in a hardcore XXX version, so here’s hoping that Severin Films releases that version in the future, much the same as Synapse Films did with Thriller: A Cruel Picture (but in reverse).  I’ve seen both versions of The Sinful Dwarf, and I feel that the hardcore version definitely enhances the sleaziness of the sex scenes and is the best way to view the film, for a nastier impact.  That said, Severin Films delivers the goods with this release and many fans will prefer this version, sans penetration as they did with Thriller

What more could you ask for in a film when there’s a demented dwarf running a drug addled sex ring, while his mother gets hammered, performing show tunes for her drunken friend?  Not to mention a killer, messed up theme song.  Now that’s entertainment!

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIAL:

- Featurette
-Theatrical Trailer
- Radio Spots

Severin Films delivers the dwarf in a full frame aspect ratio, with adequate Dolby Digital Mono 2.0 English audio.  The picture is a lot better than previous that I’ve witnessed but still contains the usual grain and scratches throughout.  However, it is likely the best the film has ever looked.  The extras include a tongue-in-cheek featurette entitled “The Severin Controversy" where John Severin (who spookily looks more similar to Olaf than a trash-compacted Jack Black) travels to a video store to interview some naysayers about Severin’s acquisition of this DVD release.  This extra runs 10 minutes and has its comical moments.  Next we have a Box Office International Pictures theatrical trailer for the film, with the title Abducted Bride.  Concluding the supplements are thirty and sixty second radio spot.
