  • Tintorera: Killer Shark 1978

    ★★★ Watched 01 Jun, 2014 1

    Tintorera surpasses Cannibal Holocaust for animal cruelty, as more than a handful of sharks, barracuda, manta ray, and other fish, are harpooned or shot right before your very eyes... animal-lovers avoid... but if you can make it past this cruelty to animals there's a surprisingly unique movie here, where shark hunters/womanizers strike up a three-way consensual relationship that manages to leap over conventional boundaries and enemies become friends, but animals become enemies in this Mexican soap-opera-slash-weird-Jaws-rip-off featuring barbaric treatment of the oceans' creatures....

    ★★★★ Watched 25 May, 2014

    Jess Franco, Antonio Mayans, and some Alligator Ladies take us on a whirlwind hallucinatory experience that transcends the fourth wall to take us through and out and around the camera as the late Jess Franco, directing his last full feature film, is determined to keep rolling until his last breath. While it really is a film for Franco die hards, Al Pereira vs. the Alligator Ladies is a Fellini-esque descent into the erotic-pschotronic mad mind of an auteur like no other.

It's hilarious, it's insane, it's unbelievable, it's unlike any other film experience you've ever had, or will have! It's SCIENCE CRAZED!

    ★★★★ Rewatched 20 Feb, 2014

    Marquis de Sade: Justine, a Harry Alan Towers production and script adapted from de Sade's infamous novel, was Jess Franco's largest budgeted film; with lavish costumes and sets, a large cast with some well-known faces including both Franco regulars (Maria Rohm, Howard Vernon) and newcomers (Romina Power, the legendary Jack Palance). Despite some production problems, which include the forced casting of Romina Power in the lead role which Jess Franco had lined up for Rosemary Dexter and some watering down…
