Her Private Hell

Debut feature from British exploitation director Norman J Warren, this cautionary tale was also the UK’s first narrative sex film.

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, Prey and Terror) and the UK’s first narrative sex film.

Beautiful but nave Marisa arrives from the continent for a job as a fashion model but soon discovers she’s being groomed for a different purpose. Starring Italian actress Lucia Modugno (Il Generale della Rovere, Diabolik), the film ran for over a year in London and put Britain on the map in the realm of home grown adult features.
