Review: Countess Perverse (1973)

“You know, it’s no easy task to cut off a human head. It’s hard work.”

A couple of bored aristocrats lives on a deserted island where sexy women becomes prey to their perverted hunt and eat games.

This is Jess Franco as we know him. A quickly made sexploitation which spends most of the time on dragged out sequences of softcore sex and transportation scenes. Even though the film is short it feels much too long. He’s got his cast of Vernon/Romay as he often use in much of the same roles, especially Vernon as the evil Count. It’s a pretty cool nude hunting scene at the end though, some good ideas, nice scenery and beautiful girls. All in all a bit of a boring sleazefest with some nice spice!
