'House of Flesh Mannequins' disgust audience leaving them to walk out. (plus Teaser Trailer Not for the faint of Heart!)

We were going to ask if this press release below was indeed correct and that we  are interested in watching this film just to know if this press release is really right,  but after searching for the trailer online we have confirmed it. Though, we are even more curious now to watch the film. Under the Press release you can find a teaser trailer off youtube for this film Warning: It contains nudity and some gory scenes. It's like walking out of a Marilyn Manson Video but with gore and nudity added.Very 70's horror feel to it as well.

The edgy art house/horror/fetish film “House of Flesh Mannequins was shown at the Santa Fe Film Festival on Thursday December 3 and Saturday December 5, and the film received very mixed reviews from the audience. In fact, according to the festival’s director, Karen RedHawk Dallett,, over 1/3 of the film’s first audience actually walked out.” The film is very different than anything being shown in America: It’s edgy and dark, almost like the remake of Cape Fear, but much more than that.”

According to the film’s producers, ”House of Flesh Mannequins,” presents a compelling case against the use of gratuitous violence, on TV, as well as, the self-righteous, sanctimonious ways that society chooses to confront children’s issues.” The film is “gory, pornographic and outrageous.” To drive the point home, “House of Flesh Mannequins,” which uses international film stars (Dominziano Arcangeli, Irena A. Hoffman, Giovanni Lombardo, Radici, Randal Malone,) as well as underground porn actors and actual fetishists, does not fake some of its most outrageous scenes.

One thing almost everyone agrees on is that the film is a cinematographic masterpiece. With both obvious and subtle nods to Fellini, Cronenberg, Lynch, Fulchi and Argento, “House of Flesh Mannequins, “ is a lush surreal piece that captures the camp and feel of classic films from the ‘70’s. The film won the Italian National Culture award for best cinematography, as well as a best actor award for Giovanni Lombardo Radici and Best movie project for 2009.

That does not take away from “House of Flesh Mannequin’s, “ ability to provoke and disgust some audience members. According to Ms RedHawk Dallet, even members of the board of directors of the Santa Fe Film festival were, “offended.” Ms RedHawk Dallet Said the film is reminiscent of the “70’s classic ”Pink Flamingoes,” but “This is where the human mind is today.” The producers had the courage to put it on film.” That said, “Would I show the movie again? I don’t think so.”
