Eurocult director Jess Franco has directed over 200 films and has made a huge impact on the horror genre. Yesterday I heard some rumors that he had a stroke. Today I must deliver that sad news that Franco died in Malaga of heart complications, at the age of 82.
Fracno is a prolific director having created such movies as The Awful Dr. Orloff, Vampyros Lesbos and Count Dracula. Most of his work was done in the 70′s during the height of genre filmmaking in Spain. He was still making films up until last year. It is a real loss to the community. Rest in peace Mr. Franco.
