Pervirella (1997) is a 16mm home
movie made in the UK, trying to be a high camp sex farce. The
production values are so bad as to make it nearly unwatchable. Things
are moved on obvious strings. Bad toy houses are used as miniatures.
Lighting, focus, exposure, etc. were totally beyond them. The acting
| Emily Booth as Emily Bouffante plays
Pervirella, who turns into a sex crazed woman when her choker is
removed. While she is topless for much of the film, in most cases the
image quality is so bad you can't really tell. Her father, and several
other people travel in search of an elixir of youth for the queen, and
have one misadventure after another.

The film was mostly shot in the director's home. Were the image
quality even marginally acceptable, this might have bad movie appeal
and a cult following, but, as it is, it is an F.
