Editorial Reviews

Singapore Sling

A detective searches for his lost love and his travels lead him to two women living in a secluded villa. When they find him barely consious and bleeding, he doesn't speak, so they nickname him "Singapore Sling". Their hospitality soon turns horrific as he discovers they may be a mentally deranged mother/daughter team interested in deadly sex and torturous games... and they also maybe responsible for hs lover's death! Wounded by a gunshot and imprisoned in a nightmare that he may never escape, "Singapoe Sling" becomes the pawn in a deadly game of sexual domination, torture and murder.

Greek Director Nikos Nikolaidis has created one of the most disturbing, gory and strangely beautiful cult films you will ever see...a haunting story of one man's search for love and the horrifying consequences of his actions. Synapse Films is proud to present Singapoe Sling in a beautiful anamorphic widescreen transfer for the first time in North America.

This is a very black comedy. It is a Greek film but most of the dialogue is actually in English. Only the voiceover narration is in Greek. It was shot in 1990 by Greek director Nikos Nikolaidis and stars Panayiotis Thanassoulis as the detective and narrator, with Michelle Valley and Meredyth Herold as the psychotic mother and daughter. This incestuous pair of lesbians (technically bisexual) live in an isolated mansion playing bondage and sadomasochistic games with each other and with various "lucky" visitors who pass their way and who unfortunately all end up buried in the backyard. The film is not at all as dark and forbidding as it may sound. It unfolds in a very tongue-in-cheek manner. It is not a horror movie as such. Neither is it a thriller. It is a weird amalgam of film noir, comedy, bondage film, surrealistic art film and absurdist cinema. It received decidedly mixed reviews, some viewers liking its boldness and novelty, others lambasting it as utter trash. Personally I found it quite intoxicating and will vouchsafe its place as a cult classic.

Nikos Nikolaidis is obviously a fan of film noir and of Otto Preminger's 1944 classic, "Laura," in particular. He borrows heavily from it, everything from the feel of the film, to the storyline, to the photography, to the music. The film opens with David Raksin's instantly recognisable theme from "Laura" which over the years has become synonymous with the noir genre. The music recurs constantly throughout. There is even a vocal version sung by Julie London midway through. The missing woman the detective is searching for is also called Laura. There is a portrait of the daughter in the mansion, very much like the portrait of Laura in Preminger's film.

It seems, apart zoophilia no mean is left untouched by this story of a sex-obsessed family Freddy could be a true head of.

Stranger the "Singapore Sling" of a Greece background gratifies mother and her jealous daughter till the trio's last breath.

Beyond the blue also this 1990 year movie is black-and-white produce.

This is just a strange movie altogether. Hard to sing praise or emit jeers - it could go either way. It's in black and white, but that's not a draw-back. It could make you lose your lunch at certain times, but it has this oddly romantic tone to it that shines through in even the most brutal scenes. I like it, but I'm not sure what that says about me as an individual.

Sing Sling is a black and white shocker made in 1990 that has just the right amount of sex, sleaze, torture, murder, S&M, shock value, and gore for my taste. If there were ever a movie that could be the most disgusting thing you've ever seen while still keeping it beatiful and artistic, Sing Sling would be it. It's a beatifully filmed and wonderfully acted film that pull's no punches in regards to offensive content (just the way I like it) and is only recomended to people wih strong stomach's and taste for the artistic.

If you ever wanted to see a girl vomit on a dude while having sex, make love to peice fruit, or get stabbed in the crotch, then this is the movie for you.

SINGAPORE SLING is one of those films that you are either going to love or hate. I, for one, loved it. I'm a huge fan of film noir, so this film's style was right up my alley to begin with. However, there's a lot more to appreciate than just style. For starters, each of the characters have their own interesting and memorable little quirks and they show right away. The way in which the characters are developed is interesting in itself. They each take turns, basically, narrating the film, yet they each do it in very different ways. This only adds more clarity to these characters and allowed me to see the situation of the film from a very open perspective. As a result, the audience may feel like they are forced to be openminded about the shocking acts that they see in the film. However, I appreciated what the filmmaker was doing. Normally this kind of story needs to be approached in a straightforward way in order for the viewer to be able to take it seriously, but the film works on it's own twisted logic and manages to develop and commingle with it's own style so that it doesn't have to be taken seriously. Obviously, the people who do take the film seriously will be in for one hell of an emotional roller coaster ride. Otherwise, the film just kind of develops it's own world and then allows it's characters and the situations to unfold in their own twisted ways. I liked this approach to the material. It's the same kind of approach that the film FIGHT CLUB uses, only here we get some semi-strict themes to contend with. The film goes on a bit too long and begins to lose steam at the end, but in general the film is a classic and I can easily see it becoming a cult classic if it finds it's right audience.

On a rain swept night, in the garden of a lavish villa, two women -- "Mother" (Michele Valley) and "Daughter" (Meredyth Herold) bury the not-yet-dead body of their chauffeur. In a nearby car, a nameless man (Panos Thanassoulis) nurses a gunshot wound. Daughter waxes nostalgic about the time when "Father" would kill all the servants, leaving Mother and her to merely bury them in the garden. The man intrudes into the bizarre household and the two women subject them to their own brand of hospitality. In this case, it's not a case of what happens next, but rather a case of what doesn't happen next! The threesome engage in a lengthy series of revolting acts culled from the Marquis De Sade Cookbook, which include vomit, golden showers, sodomy, transvestism, incest, torture, electroshock and yes, murder, all of it in gorgeous black-and-white photography to the strains of Julie London and Rachmaninov.

Ever since a friend loaned me a tenth-generation bootleg of this film on VHS ten long years ago, my love affair with this sugary piece of perversity remains unabated. Singapore Sling continues to break my heart in sixteen places in between bouts of raucous laughter and peeking behind my fingers. A true cult film, audiences have either walked out en masse or return again and again to the auditorium for repeat screenings.

A catalog of depravity and artful indulgence, Singapore Sling has no real plot. The audience is left to surmise that "Daughter" is not really "Mother's" daughter (they're far too close in age) and in one instance, we're left to wonder if "Mother" is indeed a female. The male interloper, later dubbed "Singapore Sling" by his captors, is unlucky enough to have wound up on the doorstop of this house of horrors.
