La Comtesse Perverse (1973)

** (out of 4)

Jess Franco's version of The Most Dangerous Game has Howard Vernon and Alice Arno inviting young girls to their island so that they can be hunted down and eaten. Franco's "original version" was shown once and then the producer re-edited things and added hardcore inserts, which are so incredibly stupid and make no sense whatsoever. Lina Romay plays the girl being hunted yet she also performs in the hardcore scenes even though that character isn't even the same one in the rest of the film!

I've heard Franco's original cut is a lot better and that these hardcore scenes were added later but I haven't come across this version.
