Psychopathia Sexualis (R-Rated)

Crew
Directed by Bret Wood


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."

R Rated
For strong sexual content including aberrant and deviant behavior, graphic nudity, some violence and disturbing images.
