Kinky Cannibal Double Feature:
Cannibal Doctor and Dinner for Two (2008)

Factory 2000 | Buy at Amazon | Review by Doug Waltz

There's this company called WAVE and they make custom videos of women in peril. It usually doesn't end well for the ladies and there is always a lot of nudity to be had. Anyway, WAVE decided that they should get William Hellfire to do a couple for them. The particular kink for these epics? Cannibalism. Now, if you know William Hellfire then you would expect acres of blood and gore in something like that.

But this particular fetish doesn't work that way. The cannibal fetishist doesn't want gore. What they want is women tenderized with massage and tickling (???) and trussed up like a Christmas turkey. Maybe a few garnishes and some oil to give that glistening sheen. Now, it sounds like anything BUT a Hellfire flick.

Bill was given a laundry list of what the customer wanted in the flick and thus was born CANNIBAL DOCTOR. When Misty Mundae arrives at the offices of Doctor Orange for a job, little does she realize that she is the main course in rejuvenating Orange's wife (played by the voluptuous Tina Krause). Misty is subjected to a long, protracted examination that is nothing more than a ruse to get her tender for cooking. When she starts to get suspicious, Doctor Orange, played by Bill Hellfire, gives her a huge shot for something to calm her nerves. That's when the cooking gets – well, cooking.

The second feature, DINNER FOR TWO, has the same three actors with basically the same parts. They have added tickling and fruit garnish for the cooking process, but it's basically the same movie again.

Really, unless you have this fetish, these flicks are nothing more than a curiosity. Now, if you love either Misty Mundae or Tina Krause naked and squirming, then you have another reason to get this disc.

While I would have loved a Hellfire commentary on either disc, this is still an interesting pair of flicks. I think that another, less reputable filmmaker would have just ran through the laundry list of fetishes with little thought of it, interested in the cash. Not so with Bill Hellfire. He meticulously does every aspect of the fetish and you can tell that he really put forth his best effort in making these films for the people who put up the money. If you're not careful it sucks you in and you can't help but watch what he's doing even though you know how it will all end.

In the end this pair of films gives us Misty from yesteryear in her beginnings and an odd concept of what the term fetish can mean.

In addition to the two flicks we get a ton of trailers for other flicks and a great booklet that outlines the creation of the two films as well as interviews with Misty Mundae and Tina Krause from the time period that the movies were made. Another great Misty package from Seduction Cinema.
