Funny how this film's listed genres here on Trakt are Horror, Thriller, Romance... but this is rarely horrifying, definitely not thrilling, and absolutely not romantic.
Horror writer Stephen King once said, "I recognize terror as the finest emotion... But if I find that I cannot terrify, I will try to horrify, and if I find that I cannot horrify, I'll go for the gross-out. I'm not proud.”
This film exemplifies this particular lack of pride. 'Little Deaths' is grotesque schlock. Predictable, poorly acted and horribly filmed. Alternatively repellent and boring, it makes some of King's worst adaptations (I'm looking at you, 'Dreamcatcher') look like Oscar winners by comparison.
If your cinematic world needs another cut-rate 'Saw' knock-off with even more gore, misogyny, and references to Nazi medical experimentation, then 'Little Deaths' is definitely for you.
How about if we throw in a three-foot zombie penis? Still in? You sure?
The only positive I can think of when it comes to cinematic garbage like 'Little Deaths' is that it might help you determine where your personal boundaries on good taste actually lie. Most of this film is approximately six and a half miles beyond mine, and I feel gross having watched it. But I suppose this is to be expected from an unmitigated gross-out.
No idea how this got favorable reviews, the IMDB rating is fitting.
"House & Home" is a predictable story that builds no tension and makes gore boring. "Mutant Tool" is trying too hard to be shocking and runs for way to long and once it comes full circle makes no sense. The last in the bunch, "Bitch" is more a drama than horror and the resolution to the story is set to a ten minute long song and has rather shacky camera work and depicts something I wouldn't attribute to people with that kind of kink... it might be the "best" one out of the three but it can't make up for the two before in any way.
