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?
