An erotic thriller from the director of Psychopathia Sexualis, THE LITTLE DEATH offers a peek into the seedy boudoirs of a Victorian-era brothel, where a strong-willed reformer (Courtney Patterson) and a corrupter of innocence battle over the fate of a young woman (Christie Vozniak) who seems to be held there in sexual captivity. While the owner attempts to mesmerize and seduce the would-be rescuer, a meek student (Clifton Guterman) wanders into the house and becomes a tragic pawn in the psychological game of cat-and-mouse that is rapidly unfolding.

Based on the play Death and Devil by Frank Wedekind (Spring Awakening), integrated with Anton Chekhov’s short story “A Nervous Breakdown,” THE LITTLE DEATH provides a thoughtful examination of the immorality of prostitution—but then savagely dashes all preconceived notions of “good vs. evil” in a climax that is as violent as it is unexpected.

“UTTERLY ENCHANTING...Lushly shot and impeccably acted, ‘The Little Death’ surprises you with its literate approach to the controversial subject of sex for sale.” - Daily Film Fix
