The Sinister Eyes Of Dr. Orloff
Directed by Jess Franco. Stars: William Berger, Mona Proust, Edmund Purdom, Lina Romay. Production Year: 1973
At the 2009 Goya Awards - Spain's equivalent of the Oscars - writer/director Jess Franco received a Lifetime Achievement Award for his 50-year career that includes such immortal classics as VAMPYROS LESBOS, BLOODY MOON and his infamous DR. ORLOFF series. In this Orlo shocker, William Berger (KEOMA, FIVE DOLLS FOR AN AUGUST MOON) stars as the diabolical doctor who unleashes a nightmare of hypnosis, violence and folk music on a crippled young woman (Mona Proust of DIARY OF A NYMPHOMANIAC) and her depraved family. Edmund Purdom (PIECES) and Lina Romay (FEMALE VAMPIRE) co-star in this beloved slab of psycho-sleaze, packed with enough sadism, murder and madness to keep Goya spinning in his crypt for the next half century.
Directed by Jess Franco. Stars: Paula Davis, Carmen Montes, Lina Romay. Production Year: 2010
The New York Times hails him as "the elder statesman of EuroSleaze." The Vatican condemns him as "the most dangerous director in the world." And with his hallucinatory new film, Jess Franco may prove them both correct: An exotic dancer named Paula (an eye-popping debut by Paula Davis) has been murdered. Her lover Paula (Carmen Montes of Franco's SNAKEWOMAN) is the prime suspect. But in a nightmare world of passion and perversion, could abstract desire be the greatest crime of all? Lina Romay (BARE BREASTED COUNTESS) co-stars in this audio-visual experience inspired by Jekyll & Hyde, featuring a superb jazz score by infamous Austrian pianist/composer Friedrich Gulda and loaded with Bonus Features that reveal the complete story behind one of the strangest and most fascinating films of Franco's entire career.
Bonus Features include: Jess Franco on Contemporary Filmmaking. Jess Franco on Paula-Paula.
