No one will ever make movies like Doris Wishman made movies. One of the most prolific women filmmakers in the history of American cinema, writer-director-editor Wishman created DIY collisions between surrealism and exploitation that feel like they materialized from an alternate universe. Indecent Desires—Wishman's horror-tinged, sexploitation mindwarp and a crown jewel in her ultra-prolific career—follows Zeb (Michael Alaimo) as he discovers a doll and ring with voodoo-like powers in a trashcan, allowing him to control the sensations experienced by Ann (Sharon Kent). Perverse, dreamlike, and surprisingly complex, Indecent Desires has been newly restored in 2K from its original 35mm camera negative.
