Re: Jess Franco died!

RIP Jess Franco.  I watched Count Dracula yesterday in honour of his memory.   I might watch some Orloff movies on the weekend too smile

Re: Jess Franco died!

It doesn't come as a surprise since he was quite old, but it still sad nonetheless. I'm a particular fan of his Jack the Ripper movie, I think I'll put that on later in his honour.

Re: Jess Franco died!

huge loss.  to really appreciate the Jess Franco aesthetic one must watch a good number of his films because they're all over the place in quality.   For anyone not real familiar with his output or that may have been put off due to watching one of his lesser entries, I do highly suggest the following films: The Awful Dr. Orlof, Venus In Furs, Succubus, Vampyros Lesbos, Female Vampire, Exorcism, Faceless and Bloody Moon as good entry points.

I watched Vampyros Lesbos last night in tribute. Such a good soundtrack and so many babes..

Thanks for the recommendations DH, I've only seen a couple of those. I'll probably give Dr Orloff a go next. (Barbed Wire Dolls is pretty kick ass)

Has anyone seen his Ilsa movie? Ilsa: The Wicked Warden?
