review by
Mike Haberfelner


Hostess Morella (Kayden Kross), not a stranger to torture and murder herself, takes us through three tales of torture and murder:

  • The Albino Spider of Dajette: Dajette (Ashley Wisdom) is a very pretty model who has one little problem that drives away all men: She has eyes where her nipples are supposed to be. She's so upset about this, that even her breasts shed tears, tears that fall onto an albino spider - which subsequently grows to man-size (Scotch Hopkins) and turns out to be a six-armed demon who goes on a killing spree every time Dajette falls asleep. Soon enough, Dajette, witnessing all of the spider man's murders, realizes she needs to stay awake in order to keep him from taking out all those dear to her - but that's easier said than done ...
  • Change of Face: There's a serialkiller in town who not only kills beautiful women but also skins their faces. Sgt. Anders (Sean Kanan) investigates, and soon enough his trail leads to a stripper known as Mystery Girl (Rachel Alig), who always performs wearing a face mask. Anders visits the club she performs at and follows her backstage - not knowing he walks right into the lion's den ...
  • Drukija Contessa of Blood: The Dark Ages: Like the legendary "blood countess" Elizabeth Bathory, Countess Drukija (Alice Haig) believes virgin blood will give her immortality, so she finds more and more cruel ways to drain virgins of their blood. Does it work? Her head maid (Natalia Borowsky) swears to it, but then she gets way too much pleasure from seeing the young girls die ...

Verotika is certainly not a film for everyone, and it really feels like a film out of time, detached from today's horror fare and instead highly reminiscent of Eurohorror from the 1960s and 70s, especially of the more erotic kind, borrowing freely from masters like Mario Bava [Mario Bava bio - click here], Jean Rollin, Jess Franco, Walerian Borowczyk and a host of other filmmakers from that era, and as a result the film favours atmosphere over storytelling, is low on jump scares and high on eroticism, and doesn't shy away from getting gruesome should the situation demand it. The result is something that might resemble less a horror movie and more a fever dream - and a very fascinating one at that!
