Sinful Dwarf ,The1973  
What was the terrifying secret of the attic?" The Sinful Dwarf's tagline asks in a panic. Oddly, the secret of the attic isn't a secret at all: an ex-nightclub singer and a not-very-charismatic midget who's fond of toys own a London boarding house that's actually a front for a sort of bordello in the attic. Only the women aren't prostitutes; they're captives. On of them receives a steady supply of heroin but the other three are kept from ecaping only by a curious sort of languid docility-Zorben the Dwarf is a far-from-fastidious jailer and yet not once is a break made for the attic door he frequently leaves open and unattended.

A pair of likable newlyweds comes to stay at the boarding house while the husband, an aspiring writer, looks for a job. (Rotsa Ruck.) The wife claims to hear noises from the attic and comments about the parade of people marching in and out of it all day, but the husband dismisses her concerns as childish. When he's called out of town for an interview she goes to the attic to find out what's going on-foolish girl-and is promptly taken captive missing 12 seconds of the opeing seen.
