Poster of Eugenie
  • My choice for Jess Franco’s best film! With a high budget, great cast and an interesting, kinky adult story that still allows his genius to shine through, Eugenie is a great example of what could have been a more traditional filmmaking path for Franco. … Dreamy and nightmarish at the same time, Eugenie starts out like those wonderful European soft-core films from likes of directors like Radley Metzger, but it soon degenerates into a wild S&M fantasy where the lines between reality and fiction are blurred. … This film is everything one expects from a treatment of the Marquis de Sade’s work, in that it’s sexy, unnerving and occasionally quite provocative. A definite must-see!

    Danny Shipka, Perverse Titillation: The Exploitation Cinema of Italy, Spain and France, 1960-1980 (McFarland, 2011)
