“Sexy Nature!” The Notorious #FrancoFriday Cut Of “Countess Perverse” With Lina Romay!

A Trio Of Cult Classics On This #FrancoFriday!

Mondo Macabro has made it a great #FrancoFriday with this triple set of Franco movies starring his wife Lina Romay…including a rarely seen recut of “Countess Perverse” that is very different from the original theatrical cut!


“Hunting Humans Was Her Favorite Game!”

What a great tagline for a movie! Of course, only Jess Franco would come up with a twist on “The Most Dangerous Game” – the shocking story of a man being hunted by a rich Aristocrat…Franco’s twist was simple: the Hunter was a woman, she used a bow and arrow – and she was naked!

Director Jess Franco just may have been the world’s most prolific Director, credited with hundreds of films…some were classics, some not as much, but he was never anything less than fascinating – to celebrate the social media ritual of “Franco Friday”, I want to look at a new blu-ray release – including two versions of “Countess Perverse!”

Here’s the plot in a nutshell: Two wealthy aristocrats lure a virginal girl, Lina Romay, to a Spanish island for a night of sex, death and cannibalism.

These aristocrats have a fun hobby: They strip their guests and send them out on the grounds to be hunted, “Most Dangerous Game”-style. If the guests survive long enough, the count sets them free. In this case, the young woman played by Lina Romay has a nice visit with them before discovering what they had in store for her…


Yes, the countess — who is naked, save for a quiver of arrows — gives her a head start and then the hunt is on – her goal is to shoot Lina dead, then roast her – and serve her for dinner!

Yes, you read that right!

Here is the back of the new blu-ray release – read about all the extra material on display.

Mondo Macabro has released this great trip bill blu-ray, with the original “Countess Perverse” cut PLUS an extended, notoriously dirtier cut as well!

“Sexy Nature” is the XXX-rated version of “Countess Perverse” – 25 minutes longer than the original film. Franco’s longtime companion and wife Lina Romay was an unabashed exhibitionist – and was filmed many times by Franco in XXX-rated situations…

Many of these projects have been remastered and re-released for cult film fans – always with lots of great extras – and this new release is no exception!

Also included is another Romay film, “How To Seduce A Virgin” – what a great deal – bravo to Mondo Macabro for this excellent sexploitation triple feature on two blu-ray discs, including the musical score!
