New York City Inferno
In 1978, the French director Jacques Scandelari made “New York City Inferno”, a film that later would inspire the making of both William Friedkin’s ”Cruising” and Travis Mathews’ & James Franco’s “Interior. Leather Bar.”.
Jerome arrives in New York from Paris with only one goal: to find his lover Paul, ‘swallowed’ by New York’s underground S&M gay scene. Through a number of sexual encounters, Jerome delves deeper into the leather pit - and finds Paul.
Jacques Scandelari was a film director, screenwriter and producer who produced pornographic films under the pseudonym Marvin Merkins.
Scandelari gained notoriety for his second film ”Beyond Love and Evil”, loosely adapted from Marquis de Sade’s play ”Philosophy in the Bedroom”.
In 1977 Scandelari moved to New York, where he produced ”New York City Inferno” the now classic gay porn shot on 16mm. The film is notorious for its grim, documentary style imagery and its authorized soundtrack by none other than the Village People!
