The House of Lost Women

The House of Lost Women

In 1982 – a year in which he reportedly shot 13 films – writer/director Jess Franco created this blithely twisted drama that is equal parts Buñuelian black comedy, over-the-top soap opera and furiously perverse sex shocker: Lina Romay – in her blonde ‘Candy Coster’ guise – stars as a pensive young nymphomaniac whose life on a remote island with her father, stepmother and mentally-challenged sister seethes with violence, incest and some of the most degenerate scenarios of the entire Franco canon. Antonio Mayans (NIGHT OF OPEN SEX), Carmen Carrión (THE INCONFESSABLE ORGIES OF EMMANUELLE), Asunción Calero (BLACK BOOTS, LEATHER WHIP) and Antonio Rebollo (BAHÍA BLANCA) co-star in “the best of Franco’s ’80s Spanish softcore period” (Bizarre Cinema), now scanned uncut from the original negative for the first time ever in America.
