"The incredible thing about this film is that it was made in 1975, and yet here we are, over 25 years later, and it's still shocking! It's still disturbing!"
-Eli Roth

"This film aims to disgust, revolt, and offend...and it probably does so better than just about any movie I have ever seen."
-Oh The Horror .com

"The nastiest, filthiest and just about WORST thing you will EVER SEE! ... If you enjoy watching this movie, I honestly don't want to know you." - E Film Critic

In New York's Soho district, the master of ceremonies Sardu runs the Theater of the Macabre, which specializes in acts where people are tortured and dismembered. The audiences dismiss it as fakery but the gore is real. Behind the scenes, Sardu and his dwarf assistant Ralphus torture and mutilate women for their own pleasure, as well as sell girls they have abducted into slavery. When the critic Creasy Silo contemptuously dismisses the show, Sardu has him abducted and tortured. At the same time, Sardu also abducts the ballerina Natasha Di Natalie and determines to break her will in order to make her agree to perform in his new show.
