Perversion Story (1969)

  • Thriller
  • 1h 48m

“The film’s groovy fashion… and emphatically San Franciscan setting underline a story fundamentally about the panic over women’s sexuality.” - Dana Reinoos, Screen Slate

Dr. George Dumurrier is looking for money to expand the San Francisco based clinic he runs with his brother. He is also having an affair with Jane, a glamorous fashion photographer. When Dumurrier’s wife Susan dies following an asthma attack, leaving him a million dollar insurance payout, it seems that all his problems are solved… until an anonymous phone call sends him to the Roaring ‘20s strip club where he’s astonished to discover that its featured performer, the dangerously desirable Monica Weston, looks exactly like his dead wife. As he tries to unravel this mystery, George learns that the police are now investigating his wife’s death and that he is under suspicion.

Masterfully directed by Lucio Fulci, this film just predates LIZARD IN A WOMAN’S SKIN and is equally compelling, mysterious and seductive.
