About the Movie

When cult-favorite horror filmmaker JT Petty ventures into the dark world of underground horror, things don't exactly go as planned. As he begins to examine the classic comparison between filmmaking and voyeurism within the horror genre, he uncovers a collective of filmmakers, deviants, and self-professed possible murderers. The most notorious underground film series he discovers is called S&MAN, produced by the unassuming and creepy Eric Rost. The more Petty digs into his subject, the more Eric withdraws, claiming a desire to protect his "creative vision." But Petty begins to suspect that the real reason may be that Eric's "actors" are in fact "victims," placing the filmmaker in dangerous territory and making S&MAN the most unsettling horror experience in years.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A strange hybrid of personal journey, half-baked documentary and cleverly executed tease, S&Man (pronounced "Sandman") gets up close and personal with three of the more extreme makers of underground horror and fetish films. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Oct 1, 2010

Rotten: It's not entirely clear whether helmer JT Petty is being deadly serious or perversely cheeky -- or both. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Sep 28, 2010

Fresh: S&Man is interested in the horror film in general as a perverse bridge between the genders. – Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine, Sep 29, 2010

This was EASILY the worst movie I've ever seen. I watched the trailer and I was excited to watch it, but holy cow, I was surprised. It's not even that it's disturbing. It wasn't. It was unbelievably boring. It's basically a series of interviews with people you just don't care about. You wait and wait and wait for the plot to take off and for the movie to get to the point, but it never does. It's absolute garbage and I advise you not to watch this movie.


This was the sorriest excuse for a horror movie! I am offended that iTunes would even have this movie in its system. I mean seriously! Not only was this movie slow, its plot went no where. Whoever said that this movie was a four star, has to be related to the actors and directors. So save your money and time and do not buy it or rent it!

Dear Cast and Crew

…how can you even attach your names to this “movie” is… perplexing. There is nothing in this item that appeals. Please avoid this monstrosity.
