Guest commentary by essayist and noted film critic, Stefano P. Morrocchi) This week's pictorial, though certainly not as long as the average ChloeWorld photo set, has a bizarre force that needs less pictures to tell its story. Any one of the photos here could have been a poster for an Italian Gothic horror movie from the 1960s. Does anyone remember the British actress Barbara Steele from such crepuscular films as Nightmare Castle (1965)? Or the lascivious films of Spanish horror king, Paul Naschy, such as El Espanto Surge de la Tumba (Horror Rises From The Tomb-1972)? There is unintentional homage to the lurid covers of horror comics like Creepy, and of the paperback thriller novels of Italy known as "gialli" with its scantily clad damsels-in-distress. In this splendid pictorial, the themes of male domination, female subjugation, phallus worship and subservience run riot in as stark a setting as possible. Chloe's metallic mesh mini-dress is an eye-opening costume as it form-fits to her lush, beautiful curves, the spaces between the metal chain allowing those magnificent brown nipples to poke through.
