* DepravedDwarf: Ralphus might protest that issues like "consent" don't apply to ''severed human heads''. Not all viewers are quite as sure.

A loose remake of ''A Bucket of Blood'' and ''The Wizard of Gore''. When it came out, let's just say that actual critics and feminists did not react positively.

Master Sardu and his Hispanic dwarf assistant Ralphus run a Grand Guignol-style show in which women are tortured and killed on stage in grotesquely depraved ways. Unbeknown to the audience, the acts are not simulated but genuine murders, and the women are not actresses but kidnapped and captive slaves. StrawCritic Creasy Silo declines to write any review of the show, for fear some misguided soul might actually [[ShmuckBait go to see it]] ([[GenreSavvy smart fellow]]), so Sardu has Ralphus kidnap him and chain him up in the basement. He subjects women to various tortures in front of him, including but not limited to: having a [[MadDoctor mad doctor]] come in and drill a hole in one's head to drink her brains through a straw, painting a dart board on one's buttocks and throwing darts at it, and putting one in a guillotine of which the blade is held up by a rope held in her mouth and then flogging her, forcing her to refrain from screaming lest she decapitate herself. He also kidnaps famed ballerina Natasha [=DeNatalie=] in preparation for the greatest show he will ever put on, for which Silo will have a front row seat...

Creasy Silo. Naturally, he's the character WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob identifies the most with.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Weirdly enough, even though they're responsible for equally bad if not worse crimes, Sardu and Ralphus both seem somewhat creeped out by the brain-sucking doctor.

* BadBadActing: Well, what did you expect?



* FridgeBrilliance: Long before ''FunnyGames'', this movie forced the audience to realize just ''what'' they were getting into. Listen carefully whenever Sardu is talking about the show. Now notice [[NoFourthWall he's talking to the camera when he does it.]]



* StrawCritic: Silo. But it's more or less justified. Would ''you'' praise a show about women being dismembered and tortured?

A 1976 [[ExploitationFilm exploitation]] horror film by Joel M. Reed that is arguably one of the most misogynistic films of all time. Originally titled ''The Incredible Torture Show'', Troma Entertainment retitled it ''Bloodsucking Freaks'' upon its acquisition of it, and it is better known by that title.

Master Sardu and his Hispanic dwarf assistant Ralphus run a Grand Guignol-style show in which women are tortured and killed on stage in grotesquely depraved ways. Unbeknown to the audience, the acts are not simulated but genuine murders, and the women are not actresses but kidnapped and captive slaves. StrawCritic Creasy Silo declines to write any review of the show, for fear some misguided soul might actually [[ShmuckBait go to see it]] ([[GenreSavvy smart fellow]]), so Sardu has Ralphus kidnap him and chain him up in the basement. He subjects women to various tortures in front of him, including but not limited to: having a [[MadDoctor mad doctor]] come in and drill a hole in one's head to drink her brains through a straw, painting a dart board on one's buttocks and throwing darts at it, and putting one in a guillotine of which the blade is held up by a rope held in her mouth and then flogging her, forcing her to refrain from screaming lest she decapitate herself. He also kidnaps famed ballerina Natasha [=DeNatalie=] in preparation for the greatest show he will ever put on, for which Silo will have a front row seat...

!!This film provides examples of:

* ALoveToDismember: Numerous scenes.
* BMovie
* BadBadActing: Well, what did you expect?
* BondageIsBad: Interestingly, Reed was funded by S&M groups as long as the film had a bondage element to it.
* CoversAlwaysLie: Probably one of the most infamous examples; the above seen cover art has ''nothing to do with the movie''.
* ExploitationFilm
* FanDisservice: All over the place. The examples in the synopsis are barely an introduction.
* FinGore
* FridgeBrilliance: Long before ''FunnyGames'', this movie forced the audience to realize just ''what'' they were getting into. Listen carefully whenever Sardu is talking about the show. Now notice [[NoFourthWall he's talking to the camera when he does it.]]
* {{Gorn}}
* GoryDeadlyOverkillTitleOfFatalDeath
* HappinessInSlavery: Natasha, upon being rescued by some detectives, decides she likes being Sardu's slave and runs back to him, [[AnAxeToGrind axing the detective in the back]].
* MadDoctor: One comes to rip one of the slave's teeth out and drink her brains.
* RefugeInAudacity
* StrawCritic: Silo. But it's more or less justified. Would ''you'' praise a show about women being dismembered and tortured?
