Esteemed author Albert Radeck is the toast of the Berlin literati and the object of his stepdaughter Eugenie's affections. However, when his doe-eyed little darling unmasks her sophisticated father figure as a sex-crazed psychopath obsessed with perpetrating the perfect crime, she transforms from innocent ward to a willing accomplice. The deadly duo seduce and destroy everyone in their path - until Eugenie's charms spark a jealous rage in Albert that threatens to consume them both.
Prolific filmmaker Jess Franco (MARQUIS DE SADE'S JUSTINE, SADOMANIA) again brings the writings of the Marquis de Sade to bloody life with the aid of the sinister Paul Muller (EUGENIE...THE STORY OF HER JOURNEY INTO PERVERSION), and the beguiling beauty of Soledad Miranda (VAMPYROS LESBOS, SHE KILLED IN ECSTASY) and Alice Arno (JUSTINE DE SADE). This twisted tale of the perverse has been remastered from its recently discovered original negative and is offered completely uncut and uncensored.

The presentation of the film itself is also flawless. The picture quality is very good and much better than in the previous DVD releases of this movie.
It is too bad that in my opinion the same cannot be said abouth the extras. My main interest (in fact my most important motive to buy this DVD) is the Jess Franco interview (ca. 20 minutes). I expected him to talk about the film, how the production was approached, how the shooting went, the casting, anecdotes, whatever he remembered about the movie. And what do we learn? Almost nothing of it all. He talks about de Sade, how he discovered his writings and then of course there is the inevitable talk about Soledad Miranda. Don't get me wrong, I like her much, she was very pretty and she really got into her role here (alas the same cannot be said about her performance in "Count Dracula", the movie made prior to "Eugenie"; there she is pretty as a wax doll, but almost as lifeless). But he hardly says anything about her that has not been said before in other interviews. I must say that this absolute focusing on this actress at the expense of all other actors and actresses which contributed to the making of this movie is beyond my understanding. I guess it can only be explained with her untimely death. Would there really be so much interest in her if she was still alive? Would we learn so much more about her than we learn about, let's say, Maria Rohm, Britt Nichols, Kali Hansa or any other starlet who made several films with Franco? I doubt that.
When I think about the fact that this might be the last time that Franco has been interviewed solely abouth this film I can only say that a golden opportunity has been wasted. It should have been so much more.
