A renowned plastic surgeon accidently burns the face of Lynn, his fiancee, in a scuffle with a fashion photographer. He repairs the damage using a pituitary gland extracted from a corpse, but the new skin does not last. He realises he needs skin from a live woman, and a spiral of murder and mayhem begins.

In the wake of the plastic-surgeon horror trend launched by Frangu’s Eyes Without A Face in 1960, Corruption combines gruesome violence, swinging 60s London and grind-house aesthetics
