Mansion of the living dead is a good film, Devil hunter i liked, Oasis of the Zombies is ok, Bloody moon is a good laugh. Two poor ones where Cannibal and Diamonds of Killamandjaro. Have to be in the right mood to watch a Jess Franco film.

The de Nesle films are all worthwhile. Most of the Dietrich films are a joy (particularly the WIP ones and Downtown,  although I haven't seen the hardcore films he produced). And I'm another one who rates Mansion of the Living Dead which most dislike - AND THEY AREN'T THE BLIND DEAD IN THE FILM. ARE PEOPLE FUCKING STUPID?

Speaking of Jesus Franco, earlier this year the Filmoteca Española made available online a "lost" film of his, Vaya luna de miel, which was never released to the cinemas, and whose whereabouts were unknown for almost 40 years.

The film, a light comedy/adventure, loosely based on Edgar Allan Poe's The Gold-Bug, is a bit of an unusual entry is his filmography, and if it wasn't for Lina Romay prancing around naked (or close to it) it could almost pass as a kids flick.  :-\

The film remains available on Vimeo, with English subtitles, and with no planned Blu-Ray release (apparently, there are some rights issues that may prevent one from happening any time soon) it's well worth a look.

You can find it here:




Also, the Filmoteca Española has a PDF with information about the film, its restoration, poster art, and more, here:
