Storyline

A poor little rich girl is sold into slavery to pay for her dead father's gambling debts in Renaissance France. The married couple who buy Cecily try to have their way with her, but she decides to have none of it, and runs away. The husband, in hot pursuit and with loaded pistol, dies in the chase. Poor Cecily, while on the run, unwittingly enters the land of a rich countess, and witnesses sexual debauchery. With the excuse of a trespassing rap, the evil countess tries to use our hapless heroine for her own wicked ways. Cecily escapes, and hopes to purchase a boat ticket to America. Unfortunately for her, she is caught, arrested, and thrown into a dungeon where she is raped, whipped and tortured on the rack by fiendish witch-hunters! No longer able to stand it, she agrees to the corrupt prosecutor's condition to return to the countess, satisfying her every wish. On the carriage ride to the countess' grounds, it seems she has to satisfy at least one of his wishes as well. She has ... Written by Howard Clegg

Goofs

The film story is plotted somewhere before 19th century (assuming women don't wear bra and undergarments). But the torture chamber scene of naked women tied together (one busty actress and one lean actress) has bra and undergarment straps on their bodies exhibits film scene is latest. See more »

Poor Cecily VHS version
11 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is an outstanding story to say the least. As a virgin, poor Cecily is seduced by the mistress of the house she works in. Exposed to nightly orgies, her narration of the circumstances sounds so innocent and sweet. Even in the dungeon scene her innocence is portrayed so well even up to her rape by 2 of the dungeon keepers. There is a test pattern taking place on my version of the film on VHS, I don't know if this was an attempt at censorship, or a recording glitch, it would be interesting to know if there is a directors cut out there, because it would be interesting to see, if the test pattern actually omitted real footage.....
