And now, a bit of news for Euro-trash scholars: Mondo Macabro will be releasing a DVD of Countess Perverse in June. It’s a Jess Franco film from his intensely prolific early 1970’s era and offers his take on The Most Dangerous Game leavened with Euro-cult levels of sex and sleaze. This disc will offer a new transfer from the camera negative and supplements that include the participation of Nightmare U.S.A. author and Franco schlolar Stephen Thrower. Read on for all Franco-philic details, including links for ordering…
Hunting Humans Was Her Favorite Game…and May Become YOURS!!!!
Jess Franco’s 1973 classic receives an official DVD release and a sparkling transfer!
New York; May 2, 2012) Mondo Macabro is proud to present the official director’s cut of Jess Franco’s outrageous and delirious “Countess Perverse.” Newly restored from a rare camera negative, this limited-edition DVD arrives on June 12th with a S.R.P. of $24.99.
In the “Countess Perverse” aka “La comtesse perverse” (1973, France, 78 min.), a pair of decadent and debauched aristocrats turns their private island into a human hunting ground where they can stalk their naked prey. As each victim is murdered, their carcass is then cooked and fed to their guests; simply delicious! What the unsuspecting visitors don’t realize is that they will soon become the next evening’s “meal, “ eventually fighting for their lives in a shocking and flesh-baring cat-and-mouse game. With suave actor Howard Vernon (“Seven Women for Satan”) and the stunningly sexy Alice Arno (“Justine de Sade”), the “Countess Perverse” delivers Jess Franco-sized, wicked entertainment packed with sex, sleaze and outrageous behavior.
