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 (Macumba Sexual) 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.
