Revisiting Vampyros Lesbos

Just fresh from a screening of Vampyros Lesbos ahead of reading the analysis of the film in Murderous Passions later. This would make a good jumping off point into Franco's Cinema, it's certainly one of the more palatable Franco films of his 70's run, the film's sins - some perilous framing, an occasionally ill-prepared looking Dennis Price, a few misused musical cues, are all washed away by a hypnotic performance by a sad-eyed, lovesick Soledad Miranda. Her Grand Guignol nightclub act is one of the most erotic, sensual sequences in European Cult Cinema...

Incidentally, I had an Alphaville moment watching the film !
