The Bishop (Lorenzo Zanoni) narrates three creepy stories from his archive of terrors in the bowels of Hell:

Doll Syndrome, 2014, 95 mins

With very strong imagery from the get go.

An obsessed, homicidal loner stalks women in a metropolitan city in hopes of creating the ultimate living doll that he can keep all for himself.

“doesn’t nearly get the recognition it deserves, both for being a genuinely well-made and thought provoking film but also being among the more disturbing titles out there.” – letterbox’d

Hyde’s Secret Nightmare, 2011, 122 mins

An erotic reinterpretation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic gothic novella, featuring a disgruntled scientist with impotence. His unfortunate situation leads him, and crippled assistant Hans, to explore unusual cures, including experimentation on fresh corpses. His desperation leads him to test the serum on himself, unsurprisingly this doesn’t go entirely smoothly…

“One of the only assured blendings of real sex and horror I’ve seen put on film.” –

“Employs squishy gore and ugly sex to sensually assault viewers on multiple levels” –
