Jess Franco - In Memoriam at TCM Movie Morlocks
The amazing amount of support and appreciation for the work and life of Jess Franco continues with an outstanding collection of thoughts on the labyrinth of sexy shockers that are THE FRANCONOMICON published at the TCM Blog MOVIE MORLOCKS. Participants include Pete Tombs, Tim Lucas, Heather Drain, David Gregory, Nathaniel Thompson and...your humble blogger / Franco Fetishist. Many many thanks to Kimberly (of CINEBEATS fame) for the invite, it was a real honor and I feel a little humbled by the company I'm keeping there.
It was weird. But hey, it's a reflection of my relationship to these films. I turned the key with cinema by starting up with Franco. I loved movies before I met him, but I became obsessed with cinema with Jess Franco. And Lina... And Howard... And Alice... And Soledad... And...
I've got to get back to the keyring and see what happens next. I'm obsessed.
