The Sinful Dwarf

Mondo Macabro:
Bollywood Horror Collection vol. 2

Two classic Bollywood horror movies. Sex, blood, dancing vampires and hairy beasts in an unmissable double bill of wild, Bollywood style entertainment. In Veerana: Vengeance of the Vampire, a local landowner’s daughter is possessed by the spirit of a dead witch. She becomes a bloodsucking seductress. In Purani Haveli: Mansion of Evil, an innocent girl unwittingly releases the ancient curse contained in her family’s old country mansion. Statues come to life, hairy beasts roam the corridors, the bodies pile up. Can nothing stop the evil they have unleashed?

She doesn’t care of her physical appearance until she falls victim to a bad prank made by Mirko, the most popular guy of the town, with whom Miris’ sister is in love. Miris is so frustrated that she decides to commit suicide, but just when she is waiting for the gas to kill her, she finds out that she won a trip to New York. In the USA she meets Baroness Judith von Kemp (Anita Ekberg), who chooses Miris to test a new slimming treatment.
