Taking legendary exploitation director Russ Meyer's claim that "What the public wants are big laughs and big tits and lots of 'em" as gospel, before adding a gratuitous glut of gore, Pervert! is a laugh out loud comic orgy of lust, nudity, carnage, thrills and spills (and lots and lots of blood) that pays brilliant and affectionate homage to Meyer's own cult masterworks.
Bizarre and titillating, sick and twisted, Pervert! is the ultimate in "after the pub shuts" viewing pleasures and stars voluptuous porn goddess Mary Carey (Being Ron Jeremy) who, outside of her acting career, is best known for running against Arnold Schwarzenegger in the race to become Governor of California and, more recently, for being threatened with legal action by singer Mariah Carey in an attempt to prevent her from trademarking her similar-sounding stage name (as if we could ever confuse the two!).
A young college student, James (Sean Andrews), decides to spend the summer break at his father Hezakiah's (Darrell Sandeen) remote desert ranch hoping to repair their estranged relationship following the death of James' mother. Arriving at the ranch, James finds his eccentric father obsessed with his crazily unconventional art projects and shacked up with a buxom nymphet, Cheryl (Mary Carey), for whom the phrase "like father, like son" is not so much a cliché relating to common familial characteristics as a statement of her all-embracing sexual inclinations.
No sooner has James settled into to this convenient domestic arrangement than a bizarre series of murders begins, with one curvaceous bombshell after another meeting a particularly gruesome end. While Hezekiah is looking to pin the blame for the killings on his son, James is convinced that his father has become a psychotic madman. But the inexplicable circumstances surrounding the killings have James doubting his own suspicions in a disturbingly self-reflective manner. Little does he know that the culprit is about to rear its ugly head… and it's not going to be pretty!
Featuring one of the most unexpected and hilarious villains ever to grace the screen (but we're not going to spoil the fun by giving anything away here), Pervert! is a cult classic in the making.

Hasn’t it been a long day? A lot of fun but all that perving would tire anyone out so let’s relax with the last clip where we join the ravishing Juliette Clarke for a lovely long soak. Only thing is she’s got company!
30th May 04 When the guests do arrive, they have an amusing habit of dying. This is obviously bad for business and so, with family honour in jeopardy they take quite quickly to hiding the bodies, usually accompanied by some big musical number.
