Thanks to David Z. for posting about this SE of A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD
which contains an infamous orgy sequence. I've always found this scene, which
was filmed several years after the original's completion without Jess Franco's
involvement, to be somewhat in the same spirit of Cinema-Bis surrealism as the
the Franco-shot footage.

Information and images can be found at David's TOMB WHOM IT MAY CONCERN blog.

David has emailed me that the sequence was apparently directed by Pierre Querut, a Jess Franco/Eurocine associate. I believe that Querut may be the actor who plays
the sleazy Madeira police inspector who dismisses Dr. Roberts in FEMALE VAMPIRE.

This insert features a masked queen (Alice Arno) presiding over a garden orgy. One
of the participants is Wal Davis/Waldemar Wohlfarht (THE HORRIBLE SEXY VAMPIRE, YUKA). There will be more on him in a future blog.

More information can be found at Jeremy Richey's Fascination: The Jean Rollin Experience blog where the director comments on his involvement.

Rollin directed some, but not all, of the added scenes.

Both blogs are linked on the left sidebar.

Isn't a "P. Querut" credited with the editing on VIRGIN?

There's a P. Querut credited as editing on FEMALE VAMPIRE. I don't know if he actually did the editing on not.
