Mondo Macabre's Countess Perverse details

It's never a bad morning when I awake to see the the words Jess Franco and Perverse in my inbox. I mean, how could it be bad? Exactly. Anyway, the reason being is that Mondo Macabre will be releasing Franco's 1973 film Countess Perserve to DVD in a brand new restored transfer, from the negative, of the director's cut. It will hit the streets on June 12th.

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.
