"House of Flesh Mannequins" is a homage to the 1960 cult classic, ” Peeping Tom,” and the film acknowledges the great European genre directors of the ‘70’s and ‘80’s. Cinefiles will easily recognize the acknowledgements to Fulci, Argento and R.W. Fassbinder, as well as the surrealism of Cronemberg and Lynch and the outrageousness of Steve McQueen.
With director Domiziano Christapharo’s willingness to push the envelope, “House of Flesh Mannequins“ uses real Italian porn and fetish stars in non-simulated graphic scenes. The film features stars of the notorious “Theatre of Blood,” a diverse group of European performers who make a show out of extreme S & M activities, and also includes bonus features of the troop. Arcangeli and costar Giovanni Lombardo Radice’s have won best actor and best supporting actor acting awards, and the film has also won multiple awards at prestigious festivals on two continents. According to director Christapharo, “Everything is real, but it’s a movie, so nothing is real.” For more information, please visit: http://www.fleshmannequins.com/
