Jess Franco – guts and girls

Released by Severin at the end of 2008 this double bill catches Jess Franco imbetween his more interesting periods of direction, but still able to put out a solid effort.

Devil Hunter (1980) sees Franco take to the hot steaming jungles of… southern Spain for a cannibal adventure. Nothing too original in the storyline but plenty of nudity make this worth watching for cannibal and Franco fans.

Bloody Moon (1982) is Jess Franco’s slasher film. Sadly the storyline is too restrictive to let the director do anything particularly interesting, but there are some over-the-top gore and some genuinely tense stalking scenes that genre fans might enjoy.
