I received an email from a guy who identified himself only as "Jay," but what Jay had to say I thought would be of interest to all who read this blog. As some of you know, many of my stories feature judicial or institutional CP scenes. Public birchings, floggings with martinets, and other sorts of public exhibitions dot the landscape of many of the books over to your right. So it was with some interest that I read in Jay's email about a new movie recently released in the US, from a Bolivian film company.
DEAD BUT DREAMING is a vampire film. It owes some inspiration to the old Sergio Leone Italian westerns, and from the looks of the trailer, is a violent and bloody gore-fest. But that's not why I mention it here. According to Jay the movie features a public flogging scene, a long drawn out one, of a nude woman ( a pretty blonde to boot!). Thirty six lashes are administered and the scene shows them all.
Now most flogging scenes in movies like this (indie or B-films, grindhouse fare), are poorly filmed, truncated, don't show much, poor lighting, lousy cinematography and all other manner of frustrating faults. Jay assures me that is not the case with this one. He apparently had some connection to the film and knows the lead actress.
I do not have the actual scene on video. What I do have is a trailer. Here is the link:
There is also an interesting acrticle written about the film and you will find it here:
The name of the actress in question is Amy Hasketh and she has a blog that might be worth checking out.
That happens to be all the information I have for now. The film is made by a Bolivian film company named Pachamama Films and is being distributed by Vermeerworks. It is supposed to have been released yesterday, so check your local sources.
That's all for now but I'll keep you posted.
