Verotika is not your typical comic book adaptation. For one thing, it’s written and directed by the original creator and illustrator. He’s a man of many talents, and filmmaking is one of them. Seduction and violence are recurring themes. The cast is dominated by interesting female characters. Glenn Danzig’s photography is mesmerizing, but he’s not so comfortable with motion and transition.
Costume design is nothing short of amazing. As much as we like to shoehorn movies into one subgenre or another, this one is hard to label. It’s not quite witchcraft or demonology; it’s torture, porn, but not exactly torture porn. The nature of the villains is hard to describe. Some of these monsters are never named and look like nothing we’ve seen. Their motivations are unknown.
The wraparound story is called Morella and its purpose is to introduce three segments. Segment one is about a woman with eyes for nipples who summons a human spider hybrid. In segment two, a serial killer rips the faces off her victims and collects them. In segment three, a cult leader captures a woman and bathes in her blood. The segments feel part of a whole but are three distinct experiences.
