American artist, still living
Another film in my more-or-less chronological Jess Franco Film Festival. This one looks gorgeous (all the B&W Franco movies have beautiful cinematography.) It's a bit of a mess script-wise, but you're not watching these for the great dialog. There's so many gorgeously creepy shots in this one, and the scene in the torture chamber is pretty hardcore for the early 60s. Some genuinely creepy moments, especially the final scenes in the forest. There seems to be a Bunuel influence in these early Franco movies, especially this one. If you going for the deep dive on Franco, definitely worth your time.
