TORTURE DUNGEON

Andy Milligan, USA, 1970, Films Around the World, Horror

“Practically a Lubitsch film by Milligan standards.”
— Joe, LETTERBOXD

Falling somewhere between John Waters’ DESPERATE LIVING and a late-period Hammer horror film, TORTURE DUNGEON is an outrageous blast of camp dementia from legendary queer filmmaker Andy Milligan. The Duke of Norwich is mad as a hatter! To prove it, he tortures and murders anyone who might pose a threat to his coveted throne. This includes the Duke’s gay hunchback lover, a one-eyed witch, and dirt-eating peasants. In addition to Milligan’s patented blend of caustic bickering, no-fi gore, and elegant costumes, this movie also includes the best line of dialogue that the deranged filmmaker ever wrote: “I’m trisexual — I’ll try anything for pleasure!”
