nothing short of good funBy shadow66x (7 reviews) , 11 Feb 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]Sinful dwarf. This movie screams of early 70s cheesy horror.
But taking all the elements and squashing them in to 1h28 makes not a bad movie.
You have sex, drugs, no shortage of nudity, teddies, toys and of course a dwarf.
Olaf reminds me of a cross between Samwise Gamgee and the late Oliver Reed, his performance as a naughty boy leaves little to be desired.
The soundtrack smacks of the 70s which with the classic camera work, brings together the whole ensemble and makes up for some of the holes in the script

Slow moving.By Pale (94 reviews) from LONDON , 05 May 2013Drawn-out and slow moving. Pleny of nudity and some amusing characters but it still drags. Would make an ok short but needs more depth for a feature-length picture.

[Highly rated reviewer]I was recommended this 70s female abuse dud on the basis of my love for John Waters' early work. Where Mundo Trasho or Multiple Maniacs succeed at keeping my interest, The Sinful Dwarf fails on all counts. First of all, it's obvious from the start that the whole plot is an excuse for yet another 70s soft (very soft) porn. The girls could easily push the lame dwarf to the floor and escape since the mother spends most of her time drunk as a skunk anyway. The dwarf's only weapon is his cane. A simple wooden cane. And he has to climb on boxes to hit you on the head, which seeing as he has trouble walking, he would still be climbing whist you pass him by. The girls are clean yet they have been there for days and there's no indication that they have access to a washroom or being washed either. They are never seen eating or drinking. I could go on and on with the absurdity of the whole thing but it wouldn't matter so much if it was all done with a little bit of creativity. Instead, you get people shouting at the mic because of the poor quality equipment, pantomime acting throughout and even a few songs. If you are into watching a movie on the grounds that no one else has ever seen it nor should, this is the one for you.
Strange but entertainingBy Abby88 (170 reviews) from Bognor Regis , 11 Aug 2012Lots of sex, full nudity and bad acting. The story is interesting but slow and the dwarf is disappointing. Lots of moments to laugh at though.
If you don't mind 70's soft porn, and 'B' movie horrorBy Guatie (14 reviews) , 12 Jul 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]then this film is for you. Its so bad its almost good. Hilarious at times, bad acting, poor sound synchronisation, bad script, its got the lot. Couple that with slight S and M, lots of nudity, boobs and bums, and an old fashioned view of subservient wives/women. The dwarf is quite good actually, and can look quite menacing. And the woman playing his gin soaked, ex vaudeville type star, is also not bad. If you don't take it seriously its quite funny. But if you're after art house intellectualism, you won't find it here. Two and a half stars for effort.
