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.
DVD Extras Include:
- Deleted scenes
- Behind-the-scenes documentary featuring interviews with the cast and crew
- “The Other Half” (2008, 17 min.), a short film by Bret Wood

“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
