In all the annals of cinematic sex & violence, there are few examples I've seen where both of those things seem so dismally functional.
Perverted Greek made shocker about an English couple who create murder and sexual mayhem on the island of Mykonos. A video nasty back in its day that raised more than a few eyebrows upon its release, nowadays its shock value has diminished and it even makes for a good black comedy! It's not a well made film and not one I particularly enjoyed, but I admire its craziness and taboo-breaking nature.
There's this streak of insane genius running throughout the film but the bad acting, slow pacing and terrible music ruin anything director Mastorkis was trying to convey in this pre-Natural Born Killers style sleaze fest.
Two hypocritical sickos attempt to rid the island of Mykonos of deviant behaviour. If it were more competently made and decently acted, this notorious shocker could have been truly nasty, instead of the controversy-courting piece of trash it is. The film tries so hard to be the most perverted and offensive thing you've ever seen that it becomes, ultimately, hysterically camp. As an example of this, the goat in the rape scene is definitely underage! The British version is heavily cut but, on the plus side, it's over sooner.
