The erotic film Cecilia, also known as Sexual Aberrations of a Housewife, will be released on Blu-ray Disc Aug. 25 from MVD Entertainment Group and Blue Underground.
From director Jess Franco (Venus in Furs, Succubus), the 1983 film follows Cecilia, a haughty aristocrat who enjoys taunting her servants with her flawless physique. She finds her life turned upside down when she is violated by the victims of her vicious games. This eye-opening experience leads the newly enlightened libertine into a sordid series of swinging socialite soirees, mind-bending bohemian happenings, and brazen backwoods orgies. But when her loving husband also embraces this omnisexual lifestyle, and her amorous antics arouse violence in her sadistic suitors, can Cecilia escape the cruel consequences of her own erotic excess?
The film stars Muriel Montossé (The Inconfessable Orgies of Emmanuelle), Olivier Mathot (Cannibals), Pierre Taylou (Exorcism), Antonio Mayans (Sadomania) and Lina Romay (Women Behind Bars).
The film is uncut and uncensored and has been newly scanned and restored from its original negative.
Extras include Aberraciones Sexuales de una Mujer Casada, Franco’s original cut in Spanish with English subtitles; “Sexual Aberrations of Cecilia,” an interview with Franco; “Amoral Fantasies,” an interview with Stephen Thrower, author of Murderous Passions: The Delirious Cinema of Jesus Franco; Franco-Philes: Musings on Madrid’s B-Movie Maverick, a feature-length documentary examining the career of Franco; the theatrical trailer; and a still gallery.
