From the fevered minds of maverick exploitation filmmaker Jess Franco and notorious Swiss genre movie producer Erwin C. Dietrich, comes SEXY SISTERS!
The film follows 2 stepsisters Edna and Milly, Edna stalks nightclubs looking for men to have sex with, and brings them home. However, upon arrival she disappears, and leaves them to her nymphomaniac stepsister Milly, who has spent the last 6 months chained up in a room by herself and under the supervision of Doctor Barrio. Milly, it turns out was sexually traumatized when she was young by a muscular gigolo who raped her and her sister. But that is not her only problem. Her late Father, a millionaire left her a trust fund of millions of dollars that she will inherit on her 21st birthday, if she is in the right mind to collect it. It turns out that Edna has been working with Barrio to make sure Milly is not at all in her right mind by injecting her with a medication that amps up her sex drive, and turned her into the nymphomaniac that currently is.
A lot of the Franco films of this period are fun genre romps that are loose on plot, but high on sex and nudity. Sexy Sisters certainly falls into that category. The films first half is consistently mostly sex, and what plot there is only begins to reveal itself in the second half of the film. The film feels like a more narratively strong version of his earlier Nightmares Come at Night as both feel more like a fever dream captured cinematically by Franco. - Scott MacDonald, Euro Cult AV.com.

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
In the annals of international cult, horror and fantasy filmmaking, the name Jess Franco is royalty. The controversial Spanish-born auteur directed over 200 remarkable films in his 60 year career before his death in 2013, sculpting a body of dangerous, dark, erotic and generally outrageous descents into personal, obsessive and entertaining excess.
Now, Full Moon is thrilled to be able to honor the legacy of Jess Franco with our new DVD series, “The Jess Franco Collection.” Working in partnership with legendary exploitation film producer Erwin C. Dietrich, Full Moon’s “The Jess Franco Collection” features 10 titles culled from that golden period of collaboration between Dietrich and Franco, all of them featuring transfers struck from a brand new HD master and each release loaded with special features.
Starting with Franco’s violent 1976 masterpiece JACK THE RIPPER, Full Moon will release a new Franco title every month to DVD. Each beautifully designed and packaged DVD will feature on its spine, a piece of a “puzzle” that, when put together with the entire 10-unit set, will create an exclusive portrait of Jess Franco designed by artist Ryan Brookhart.
“I’m excited to be able to bring this awesome collection to the fans,” says Full Moon founder and equally storied genre film producer/director Charles Band.
“My WIZARD home video imprint was among the first in North America to distribute Franco’s films in the early 1980s and it makes perfect sense that Full Moon should be the ones to now release these beautiful new transfers of some of Jess’ most effective pictures to domestic DVD.”
Titles featured in Full Moon’s “The Jess Franco Collection” are as follows:
JACK THE RIPPER
BARBED WIRE DOLLS
SLAVES (no English track, only English subtitles available)
MARQUISE DE SADE (aka DORIANA GREY)
WOMEN FROM CELLBLOCK 9
LOVE LETTERS OF A PORTUGUESE NUN
