Her Private Hell (80 mins)
The cautionary tale of an innocent girl abroad who gets caught up in the sleazy world of modelling, Her Private Hell was the debut feature of
British exploitation director Norman J. Warren (Satan’s Slave, Terror) and the UK’s first narrative sex film. Starring Italian actress Lucia Modugno (Diabolik), this film has the dubious honour of putting Britain on the map in the realm of home grown adult features.
