    ★★★★½

    Great! Dreamy and weird, barely scripted, but full of beautiful images, beautiful women, and of course, the amazing soundtrack. Self-indulgent Franco is the best Franco.

    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.

    I re-watched this one recently, and it has aged so well - it's still the best Batman movie, and possibly the best Tim Burton movie. All the tics that become incredibly annoying in Burton's later films work perfectly here. Michelle Pfeiffer should've won an Oscar, too.

    Wow, what a delight this was! Just perfect! I wish I had seen it as a kid = it would've been an obsession for me. Dreamlike and genuinely creepy at times, one of those movies where the limitations of budget work in its favor. Another great Jess Franco film!
