Charlie Hobbs, Contributing Writer
Mondo Macabro is one of my favorite video labels EVER and the subject of our next Video Home Invasion column. Until I get that rolling, however, here's a lovely piece of news for fans of '70s sleaze. Jess Franco's Countess Perverse (The Perverse Countess, La comtesse perverse) is coming to DVD in its full uncut glory this June 12th!

No one has done the quality work with Franco's films that Mondo Macabro has, with their recent editions of Sinner: Diary of a Nymphomaniac and Lorna the Exorcist being prime examples. I cannot wait to check this one out!  Here are the details:
Hunting Humans Was Her Favorite Game...and May Become YOURS!!!!

COUNTESS PERVERSE

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.
