Jess Franco was director, cinematographer, writer, composer, editor, producer and actor in a series of fiercely independent films made over a roughly sixty year range. From B-horror films to hardcore intercourse films, Jess Franco established himself as a reigning king of low budget filmmaking, at the same time providing a series of sinister, sometimes comic roles as actor as well. He was truly one of the busiest, most prolific directors of Spanish cinema.
The World’s most Dangerous Filmmaker is a fantastic book written by Kristofer Todd Upjohn. We thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author does an excellent job with examining Jess Franco’s individual movies for the first time including Count Dracula, Jack the Ripper, The Erotic Rites of Frankestein, Countess Perverse and more! We will undoubtedly be reading more from this author.
