A Virgin Among the Living Dead (1973)
Director: Jesus Franco, Jean Rollin, Pierre Querut
Main Stars: Christina von Blanc, Britt Nichlos, Rosa Palomar, Anne Libert
Storyline: A woman from London visits an old castle for her father will, she learns all there are actually dead and she tries to live with the darkness of them.
Review (Spoils): Young Christina (Christina van Blanc) travels to London to her family castle for the reading of her father’s will. She learns that none really live in the castle no more and that when she arrives her own stepmother is on her deathbed. She warns her to leave but dies right there.
Through dreams, introductions of a strange cast and the ghost of her father she learns that she is trapped in the castle with the undead. Throw in some erotic gothic horror and some innocence of the young girl slowly catching on what is actually happening in the castle and the people set before her. We don’t have a lot of horror unlike some of the euro trash that Jesus Franco is known.
Rating: This film is not one of the better ones from Jesus Franco but it is watchable and entertaining enough with young Christina von Blanc. But if you really want an experience of Franco films or euro trash than check out Vampyros Lesbos or Nude for Satan from Luigi Batzella.
