In the presence of Roberta Findlay

Violence, sexual violence

Isolated in a house by the sea, Karen, a mentally unstable young woman, suffers from increasingly distressing hallucinations. Woe to those who would like to pay her a visit….

Like many pornographic movies, A Woman's Torment was shot in two versions, hard and soft, in order to sell it better. Roberta Findlay has always preferred the more balanced and precise editing, which hides explicit close-ups. So it is this version, much closer to a psycho killer movie than an erotic drama, that we propose you.
