Default R.I.P. Jess Franco

Found out today that horror and exploitation film director Jess Franco passed recently. I bid a sad farewell to a director who really had a skill for dividing audiences and a true talent for photographing beautiful women... I'll really miss you Jess.

RIP.

He was a miracle among the exploitation directors of this planet. He made over 200 (!) films and many under pseudonyms.
I have to dig deeper into his works, so far I know only a few.

If you haven't seen Faceless, 99 Women, or Sadomania... highly recommended!

I loved Faceless... it reminded me so much of the film, Eyes Without a Face.

I feel like a dick to say this, but I thought Franco had been dead for years. Shit.

RIP.

I will put that in queue.
I always knew he was a weird director with a stunning I don't give a shit about anything-attitude. I criminally overlooked him.
His reputation meant nothing to him, he just made one movie after another. That's a great work ethic.

From what little I've seen of his massive body of work, I gotta say Bloody Moon and Faceless are sublime slices of sleaze. The former features one of the most gratuitous random kid deaths ever; so much so that it should be awarded a block of cheese for turning something trying to be shocking into pure silliness.

Besides a classic like Eyes Without A Face, I couldn't think of a more fitting Eurotrash double bill than Faceless paired with fellow sleaze magnate Joe D'Amatos Beyond The Darkness AKA Buio Omega. Of course, I still can't decide if the awful Emanuelle-esque theme song makes Faceless or ruins it.
