Psychopathia Sexualis (R-Rated)
Directed by Bret Wood
Psychopathia Sexualis (R-Rated)
Also available as an Unrated Director's Cut
Described as "kinky material trapped in a cage of Victorian propriety" (The New York Times), Psychopathia Sexualis is a dreamlike depiction of turn-of-the-century sexual deviance, from the pages of Richard von Krafft-Ebing's notorious medical text. As he interweaves fables of sexual repression, vampirism, hypnosis, sado-masochism and lesbianism, writer/director Bret Wood (Hell's Highway: The True Story of Highway Safety Films) creates a haunted vision of an era when medical science endeavored to label, cure or eliminate anyone who refused to conform to its idea of sexual "normalcy."
For strong sexual content including aberrant and deviant behavior, graphic nudity, some violence and disturbing images.
