Franco's films from this era are mostly gothic nightmares that occur in broad daylight, a feat not easily accomplished, as an unbending rule in this genre is to have the ghoulish goings-on transpire at night, when shadows and darkness allow our minds to fill in the blanks as we individually see fit. Jess offers up evil deeds that can't be misconstrued as something else, which at times are both blessing and curse. But his bravado must be admired even when it fails, yet here it rarely does. The same goes for 'Sinner: Diary of a Nymphomaniac' from the same year, both gleaming examples of Jess working full throttle, delivering feverish flesh-feasts for the fetishistic fanbase he's cultivated through the decades. Unburdened by the narrative chains of traditional film, story scenes cut and change once an idea is entertained without bother for details and extraneous dialogue - they are the cinematic equivalents of a 'Creepy' or 'Eerie' magazine story from the same era, and about as deep, but that's not meant as criticism.Read more ›
At the film's start, a male & female couple spy an unconscious woman's naked body lying at surfs edge on the beach. After they scoop her up and take her to their apartment she regains consciousness and tells her horrifying tale of encountering a pair of wealthy sadists on a local island and her eventual escape from them. Too bad for her though that the pair who 'rescued' her are actually in league with the devious island dwellers and they drug her and return her to them. The procurers then turn their sites on a fresh victim and the lovely Marie (played by, then ingenue, Lina Romay) falls into their clutches. After first seducing her, they then take her to 'the island' and introduce her to the wicked libertine couple over a meal that consists totally of huge hunks of a delicious 'mysterious' meat.Read more ›
