A Virgin Among the Living Dead

A Virgin Among the Living Dead

Directed by Jess Franco

A woman’s first visit to her relatives turns into a surreal nightmare when she realizes that they’re evil undead spirits. When Christina arrives at her late father’s castle, she meets her very creepy kin. After ignoring a warning to escape, Christina is drawn into the bizarre erotic blood-drinking antics of her repulsive relations, who may have some equally messed-up plans for her. Jess Franco expert Stephen Thrower (from the band Coil) calls VIRGIN a “morbid and magical fever dream” whose surreal ending is one of the most “extraordinary in Franco’s career.”

A woman’s first visit to her estranged relatives turns into a surreal nightmare.

When I would watch these 70's euro-horrors on late night TV with Elvira or some such, I always figured they didn't make sense because of the dubbing and having all the objectional material cut out. But I was wrong. You can add back in all the sleaze (aggressive nudity, sadism, and a rape scene to boot) and it still doesn't tell a coherent story. They get some beautiful visuals and the disjointed dream-like atmosphere can be unnerving I guess...but the longer it goes on the more likely you are to fall asleep than be scared.

Interesting Euro-Sleaze from Jess Franco (Jesus Franco). This Erotic Horror film is a bit all over the place. First it seems like a ghost story, then possible vampirism, then cannibalism, then zombies, and finally witchcraft. It is not a bad film and it is beautifully shot. Just needed to stick with one of the genres.
