I really cannot wait for sadistic new horror anthology, The Profane Exhibit, and the collection of nasty tales is getting ever closer to being finished. A new image has gone on-line to celebrate the completion of director Marian Dora’s (Cannibal) segment titled ‘Mors in Tabula’. The still can bee seen above, and slightly larger below.
The synopsis for Mors in Tabula goes like this: “A middle-aged woman suffers from incurable cancer. In it, a surgeon offers her the possibility of an operation. The operation is the patients ultima ratima /last chance. But he has only his own desires in mind.”
The list of awesome directors for the anthology are as follows:
Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust, The House at the Edge of the Park)
Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes)
Coffin Joe (Embodiment of Evil)
Ryan Nicholson (Hanger, Gutterballs)

“Deep within the underbelly of Paris, there is a club which is the home of a secret, wicked society. At first it resembles an ordinary fetish or goth nightclub, but hidden within the cavernous building are many hidden rooms. One of which is known as “The Room of Souls,” a private gathering place of the world’s richest and most evil people. Their host is the elegant yet frightening Madame Sabatier. For their amusement, each member takes a turn and spins a true tale of their depravity: A good wife learns that her husband goes out at night to abduct and murder young women; A botched suicide attempt leads to a drug induced dream; A girl is believed to be possessed by a demon and her overly religious parents enlist the help of a corrupt reverend who has his own sinister plans; We are invited inside the deranged mind of a respected surgeon as he takes us on a guided tour of life, death, and everything in between; A young street prostitute crosses paths with a charismatic flesh trader and is forced to take an unspeakable journey of sex, violence, and murder; A nun is abducted off the streets of Rome and held captive for over a year turning her into a feral, murderous creature to be unleashed on society; A chance encounter on a fateful bus ride for an unsuspecting girl who dreams of riches and fame is her undoing; A man picks up a woman in a nightclub and soon finds himself at the mercy of a cult of women who believe consumption of their sacrifice will bring them to their highest form of female dominance; An unflinching look into darkest Africa where human life is traded for fortune and the most unspeakable atrocities are committed. It truly is a profane world, and this is THE PROFANE EXHIBIT. There are no boundaries.”
