What is 'He's Dead Because of the Burglars'???

An interesting little tidbit...A filmography of Jess Franco films in an early issue of the UK horror magazine Samhain (Issue 5, Sept/Oct 1987) has something called 'He's Dead Because of the Burglars' listed as one of his films from 1979, though in my years of reading Franco articles/information I’ve never seen any other reference to this extremely bizarre ‘mystery’ title. Neither have Robert Monell or Francesco Cesari. This could be either (a) an obscure retitling (b) a never-filmed project, perhaps briefly mentioned by Franco in an old interview or elsewhere (c) an error by the authors of the filmography (d) a fictitious title dreamed up by someone (e) a long-lost film (unlikely). Note that The Hot Death aka 99 Women has been erroneously included here.

I think a project titled THE BURGLARS is mentioned in IMMORAL TALES as something Franco was interested, but never did it. Thanks for info!
