    The Tenebrae on Sorority Row

    I’m more familiar with the concept of Jess Franco than his body of work, having only seen The Devil Came from Akasava and The Cannibals before now. I get that his output is going to be a mixed bag with the occasional gonzo gem. So, fingers crossed, here we go.

    Miguel’s problems run much, much deeper than just his facial deformity. So, of course, he ends up creeping around his sister’s girls’ school…

    This is probably my eighth attempt to watch Baron Blood from start to finish, despite being a big Mario Bava fan. The problem is it seems super comfortable, so I tend to start it at the end of a night of movies and doze off somewhere near the middle of the movie.
