FULL CATALOGUE BELOW


7 Sins

7 Sins is divided into seven segments, each one unique in its voice, acting, story, and style.

This film uses the themes within its subtext and introduces, and then wildly perverts, the punishments associated with the 7 Deadly Sins. The overall atmosphere is one of uneasiness that, in addition to a fair amount of disturbing visuals, is amplified by its pulse-pounding soundtrack. Also available on Blu-ray
