Horror films with dwarves/midgets

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Midgets rule! Yeah I know it's not politically correct but so what? I just dig 'em. And if they come combined with horror then that is just about the best thing ever! But strangely I don't know that many horror films featuring dwarves. Of course there are those crappy Leprechaun flicks and your average David Lynch mind-fuck (Twin Peaks, Mulholland Dr.). Dario Argento's Phenomena (the dwarf/child) and Sleepless (a midget mystery writer! yeah!) do the trick as do most of Alejandro Jodorowsky's films (lots of cripples, dwarves and other freaks). There is a hilarious midget in Human Nature (no a horror film but pleasantly weird). I also remember a dwarf cameo in Clive Barker's Lord of Illusions (a midget photographer at one of the murder scenes) and even though it is not exactly horror I enjoyed the shit out of the midget brushing his teeth with cocaine until he drops unconsicious in Takashi Miike's City of Lost Souls. Anyone have any recommendations that would cater to my strange tastes?

Nicolas Roeg's adaptation of Daphne DuMaurier's Don't Look Now. A really haunting, old school psychological horror movie. Absolutely brilliant.

Oh my god, how could I forget that film?! That ... thing at the end scared me like very few things ever have! I had to sleep with the lights on for 2 or 3 days and that was at the age of 19 or 20. I have to pick up the DVD one of these days.

There are a few midgets in Freaks, one of the most disturbing films ever.

Not to mention the guys with no lower half to their bodies.

Might be a good idea to post SPOILERS if you plan on discussing Don't Look Now.

Also, little people fans should check out The Manitou.

No one mentions the troma classic-

Bloodsucking Freaks?

Come on, Ralphus is the king of midgets!

The Full Moon movie Blood Dolls has a cool little midget.

Dont Look Now was incredible. That ending is seriously creepy. Beautiful film too. Very giallo like in ways.

Holds a special place in my heart that one does.

What about that gravelly-voiced bastard in Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood?

Nilbog! I'm still in shock about the use of that word.

Just like to add that the end (and begining for that matter)of DON'T LOOK NOW knocked me on my ass the first time I saw it. Great payoff.

I wish Nicholas Roeg did more films I was interested in.

I believe that is the same midget from Full Moon's Blood Dolls. He also made an appereance on CSI.

Tom Cruise was in Interview With The Vampire. Does that count?

Don't Look Now is brilliant. I was lucky enough to see that at a special BFI screening with Nic Roeg introducing it. I'm ashamed to say I'd never seen it before that night (although I've had it on VHS for years) and it blew my little socks off. Best midget-reveal ever.

I'm still getting over the midget Amanda Plummer in Pet Semetary.
