Editorial Reviews

When writer/director Jess Franco died in April 2013, cinema lost its legendary master of Euro-Cult. Now in memory of his extraordinary 50+ year career, Severin is proud to present one of his most notorious slabs of uber-sleaze: Alice Arno (of JUSTINE DE SADE fame) stars as a secretary sent to the seaside estate of a depraved millionaire, his nymphomaniac daughter (Franco's beloved muse Lina Romay), her invalid cousin (Catherine Lafferiere of EXORCISM) and their grunting houseboy. But when her day's work ends, a nightmare of depraved new duties will begin! Paul Muller (BARBED WIRE DOLLS) co-stars in this Uncle Jess jaw-dropper packed with incest, lesbianism, sadism and murder, restored from a 35mm print discovered in a Barcelona bordello, loaded with Bonus Features and presented in high definition for the first time ever in America! Bonus Features: Hot Nights - Exclusive Interview with director Jess Franco; Jess and Lina talk LINDA - Exclusive Interview with Director Jess Franco and Star Lina Romay; Fantasticfest Lifetime Achievement Award Presentation to Jess Franco; NIGHTMARE USA/BEYOND TERROR Author Stephen Thrower on LINDA; Out-takes; Trailer

4.0 out of 5 stars Get the limited edition! October 10, 2013
By J. Had
Great looking bluray with minor print damage & telecine wobble here and there. It features many obvious cutaways and very little nudity IMO. The "hard banana cut" featured on the limited to 2500 copies edition seems to be the real cut to me. It is the film I expected to see, with plenty of flesh on display during the sunbathing scenes and just about everywhere else (completely different takes by the way with the actors). The hardcore scenes (very few) also feature Lina Romay, not some inserts. I really feel this is the true cut, though the poor quality tape source hampers things quite a bit (it is anamorphic widescreen however & in French with English subs). This reminds me a lot of Shreik Show's first attempt at Lizard in a Woman's Skin; good quality edited print, poor quality for the uncut. Anyhow, I'm glad I was able to see it, but without the bonus disc, this might be a complete waste, despite Lina's lovely eyes often zoomed upon (Leone style) in the cut Bluray version. I'll even go so far as to say that the film plays much better in the "hardcore cut" and the ending works better for me. If anybody can offer further info about the various cuts, I'd love to know. For now, I consider the Blu just an awkward tease & not worth owning without the bonus. The banana rape scene doesn't exist, nor is it even eluded to on the bluray. If you've ever read anything about this film, sorry, that's not on the Blu. Get the limited edition while it's available.

Franco's 1975 domestic drama, Hot Nights of Linda, aka Brutal Nights of Linda, aka But Who Raped Linda? brought out on DVD from a recently discovered 35mm print which nevertheless shows a certain amount of wear and grain. The print has not been cleaned up much (there are speckles and some minor scratching throughout and reel-changes are noticeable with slightly more wear) but nothing critical or major and in fact it's endearing. The rough grindhouse filminess of the presentation adds the the experience.

Marie (Arno) is sent to a mansion on an island to help an older man (Paul Muller) take care of his daughters Lina Romay (playing the nymphomaniac Olivia) and Catherine Laferiere (playing the crippled/catatonic Linda). Family secrets ensue and a hidden trauma as well as casual and increasingly twisted sexual activities slowly unravel.

It's a fairly typical middle-period Franco with similarities to Female Vampire, Doriana Gray, and Eugenie de Sade. The plot is minimal and loose and stream-of-consciousness: Arno basically shows up to talk, watch, be seduced and sunbathe. The film presages his slower atmospheric and dream-like Golden Films from the '80s. Linda is moody and erotic, mostly due to the naked flesh on display and Arno's gaze. The camera loves her and she knows how to simply watch, as we do. The stunning Spanish location and the house in which it's shot also looks beautiful and tactile with its textures, stone details and plaster walls and plants. A slowburn of perversion and dread permeates. Franco uses some artistic lighting and effects, and there's a great (apparent) post-coital scene between Romay and Arno where Romay explains something while smoking and leaning against a doorframe that's bathed in red light.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bananas!!! November 11, 2013
By Me$mer
Verified Purchase
Having been a fan of Jess Franco for quite a while now there was no way I was going to miss this steamy Severin blu ray release.
An AMAZING job was done in compiling interviews, restoring footage and even finding the non English speaking 'HARD BANANA' version that I viewed after watching the restored blu ray version of the film.
Great insight into the relationship between Franco and his longtime muse Lina Romay whose treatment of a banana in the film is definitely worth the price! First 2500 get the extra disc 'HARD BANANA' version so don't hesitate...

2.0 out of 5 stars Banana version standard HD December 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
The cut version is what you get on blu...Looks ok, but a lot of the story line is lost with all the cut scenes...The banana version is the better version, but is only standard definition and it looks terrible...Looks like your standard bootleg...I think that footage was lost and someone definitely took a video camera and set it in front of a computer monitor or TV to record it from a VHS tape..So it appears..Dark scenes are really blurry..Some day scenes are seriously washed out, there is tape roll--(You know when the vhs looses tracking and you have the "roll" going on..For those of you old enough to remember beta and vhs..) and the audio is horrendous..It has a serious buzz in the audio track which is really prevalent when run through a home theater system....Hopefully someone will be able to get a good banana version released sometime, but I'm afraid this is the best we are ever going to get...
