HORROR PICTURES COLLECTION NO. 17: JESS FRANCO (PART 1)
HORROR PICTURES COLLECTION
Vol. 1, No. 17
Publisher: Gerard Noel
Collection Introduction: Lucas Balbo
Due to a couple of borderline images that I've posted lately, I figured it was wise to put back the Google adult content portal so that the faint of heart wouldn't collapse while innocently stumbling across the image of a bare shoulder, worse yet, a bit of cleavage, and, God help me, even a bared breast or two. Consequently, I thought I'd post up something that might be considered "adult portal worthy".
Subtitled, "The Franco Follies", this issue of the French pro-zine, HORROR PICTURES COLLECTION features the work of Spanish director Jesus "Jess" Franco.When one hears his name, thoughts immediately turn to terms like, "weird, psychedelic plots", "strange and surreal scenarios", and, "lots of sex and nudity". From films like THE AWFUL DR. ORLOFF, SUCCUBUS, JUSTINE & JULIET, EUGENIE, and DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN, Franco's perverse, provocative, and sometimes artful films are well-represented here.
I've had this scan for a number of years in the vaults at the Mysterious Mansion. It was grabbed off the web in the days of yore when lots of monster magazine downloads were circulating between collectors. It's time to share it again.
