Pervert! (2005) came about the way a lot of micro-budget indy films do. Director-producer Jonathon Yudis made a decision that he was going to make a feature film and not let anything get in his way. He knew the limitations of his resources so he his college chum Mike Davis to write a script using a small cast and one location. The are both Russ Meyer fans so they created an homage to Meyer, full of large breasts. They took Russ to his next logical progression, throwing in a horror element, but the entire thing is an outrageous comedy.

A college student is to spend the summer with his dad in the desert. When he arrives, he sees dad's new playmate, Mary Carey. Something does her in, as well as dad's next hooker/companion, and junior suspects that dad is doing them in. Dad suspects junior. Dad's hobby of making meat sculpture art is certainly suspicious. Just how silly the film is becomes obvious by the identity and appearance of the actual monster.

Finally, junior decides dad needs to be locked up, and sends for nurse Juliette Clarke to evaluate his condition. She, it turns out, becomes half of the requisite girl/girls scene, and has the gumption to survive The Pervert. The film makers wanted to telegraph what kind of film this was early, hence the bogus rating screen.

The film goes out of its way to insult as many groups as possible, and does a good enough job that nobody is insulted. This is low budget lowbrow humor, but has cult classic written all over it.
