A Virgin Among The Living Dead
Rock! Shock! Pop!
20 August 2013
Summary: Now that it’s been given a proper special edition Blu-ray release, it should seem obvious that the film, particularly in its Christina, Princess Of Eroticism cut, is a far better picture than it’s abysmal reputation would have many fans believe. When viewed properly, it’s sometimes morose and often times bizarre fever dream of a movie, subtly mixing its horror movie quirks within the confines of a hallucinatory tale of sex and surrealism.
Excerpt: IMDb credits 199 films to Jess Franco as a director, so it's a bit hard to completely pigeonhole him. However, his most famous films generally follow a recognizable formula: young girl goes to remote location, having dreams and/or hallucinations while being enmeshed in some kind of family drama. There's lots of excuses for nudity, maybe even some sex, and an ambiguous ending is usually on offer.
