ABOUT THE FILM*
“There’s only one way to overcome temptation – by giving into it!”
Acclaimed ’70s avant-garde erotic filmmaker Peter de Rome and narrative porn masters Hand in Hand Films bring a balanced measure of storyline, emotion, and steamy sex to this classic gay horror/porn hybrid, which is simultaneously artful, campy, and haunting.
Loosely based on a Poe story, the film focuses on Caswell Campbell, a priest in training on sabbatical, torn between the call of the cloth and his pent-up lust. Religious repression leads to internal – and physical – fragmentation as Caswell repeatedly glimpses his sexually ravenous doppelgänger and is drawn into a bizarre underworld of psychedelic supernatural sex, with rough and kinky action and surreal, stylized sex scenes abounding!
Inspired by the creativity and originality of the erotic movies she saw at international adult film festivals, director Shine Louise Houston created PinkLabel.TV, providing an online streaming platform where emerging and independent adult filmmakers could reach a global audience. Launched in 2012, the site has become home to over 2000 unique, award-winning films and spanning classic to contemporary titles. Memberships start as low as $9.99/month, film rentals average between $1.95 – $13.93, and every view financially supports the filmmaker.
