shameless, tasteless: trash cinema from the soviet underground
Before there was WHORROR COMIX, there was YAKOV LEVI FILMS. Starring real-life Ukrainian prostitutes and pimps, these films were the precursor to the comics. Baba Alla, Ukraine's oldest and ugliest whore, became the inspiration for THE WHORE OF HORROR. The films shown below were eventually bought and distributed by Troma.
