Yes, after several Super Heroine short films, I have finally made a peril film. What the hell is a peril film? It’s the type of movie that is most popular in this genre. The majority of fans for super heroine films are the people who, during early childhood developed a fetish for the damsel in distress scenario. For instance people my age, that is to say… old, were influenced by the 60’s Batman TV show and Wonder Woman in the 70’s.
This fetish is a common one because the damsel in distress subject is a classic theme constantly used and dating back to ancient Greek Mythology. Stuff like goddesses threatened with sacrifice to dragons and shit. Enough already, I’m not here to give you a fucking history lesson.
What I’m trying to say is although the fetish for women in peril isn’t new, I didn’t actually realize how big the community for it was and how many of the simplest things seen in heroine story lines are fetishized. Ideas like chloroforming, gassing, unmasking and stomach punching to name just a few. Even popular fetishes like bondage were far more popular than I realized. I totally understood the tight spandex fetish because that’s my cup of tea. So much so that I thought just showcasing lots of wedgies, camel-toe’s and huge boobs busting out of tight costumes was enough.
Looking back over the last 4 years of doing this I realize how naive I was. So after spending lots of time on forums and seeing what other producers are doing. The idea finally sunk into my thick head and I made my first peril film. Viper, trapped by the Dark Enforcer. This film is just baby steps at this stage but it does feature chloroforming, body blows, gassing and bondage. All the wholesome family fun you can expect.
This film was actually really fun to make. I’m looking forward to making more and have some great ideas in mind. If you watch the film and enjoy peril films, please give me some feedback as to what you like and where I can improve what I do. In the meantime check out these stills and the trailer inspired by Travis Bickle himself.
