AN INTERESTING COMPARISON. EL COLECCIONISTA DE CADAVERES

Cauldron of Blood - (aka "Blind Man's Bluff") [VHS]
CAULDRON OF BLOOD aka BLIND MAN'S BLUFF


MIL SEXOS TIENE LA NOCHE


EL COLECCIONISTA DE CADAVERES, a Spanish-US coproduction was shot in 1967 by Santos Alcocer (ORGIES OF DR. ORLOFF aka Solo un Ataud) in Southern Spain. Note that the plot point of a sculptor who uses the skeletons of murdered women as armatures (cf MYSTERY OF THE WAS MUSEUM, HOUSE OF WAX, BUCKET OF BLOOD, CRUCIBLE OF TERROR) is the same as Jess Franco's ROTE LIPPEN/TWO UNDERCOVER ANGELS filmed the same year and that it was shot using what appears to be the same villa near Malaga which was the setting of Franco's 1982 thriller MIL SEXOS TIENE LA NOCHE, sometimes utilizing the same camera set ups. An interesting double bill, ultimately in Jess Franco's favor. Thanks to Francesco Cesare for sending an excellent quality DVD-R of EL CASO DE LAS DOS BELLEZAS which is about 10 m longer than the English language version, TWO UNDERCOVER ANGELS and has a different musical score.

Hi, I think you were following my Necrotic Cinema blog. Or at least I seem to following yours :) I had to change the URL for a couple reasons. Things will improve for me but the drawback is I lost all my followers. If you like the sick site can you refollow me at:
