    So it seems that Jess is going back to work.

    Fangoria just posted this.

    "One of those admirers and pals, PLAGUE TOWN and THEATRE BIZARRE director and Severin Films mastermind David Gregory, ventured to Franco’s home in Spain to sit with him, discuss some of his classics and get a sense of where his emotional wellbeing was at.

    As it turns out, Franco is thriving and planning to direct two new horror films.

    [They] will start shooting next month in Malaga,” Gregory tells FANGORIA, “and I've no idea on budget, but I understand longtime Franco actor/collaborator Antonio Mayans is involved in the productions. They will be titled SISTER VAMPIRE and THE CASE OF THE FRIGHTENED LADY, the latter based on an Edgar Wallace story [Ed. note—Adapted as a film in 1940, THE CASE OF THE FRIGHTENED LADY concerns an aristocratic family and their propensity for murderous deeds].”

    Gregory also shared an audio clip with us, wherein he asks Franco if he ever had planned to stop making movies.

    “Never,” said Franco. “The one day I have to stop, life will stop for me. This is the thing I prefer. The death of Lina gave me—instead of letting me die in a corner—it gave me the power to go again.”

    I'll be the first to admit that Franco's recent stuff has done nothing for me, BUT... I'm glad he's still going at it.

    I'm also still speculating that the Gregory interviews may have been recorded for some sort of DVD release through Severin... but that's just a guess on my part.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Be nice if it was, but I also wonder if, as he has done many times in the past, Gregory has recorded these interviews for another company - perhaps BU may be considering releasing some of their Franco titles on Blu-ray. (VENUS IN FURS, please .)

    Given BU's track record of not including new extras on their Blu-ray reissues, I'd guess they're out of the running.

    Most likely, but I have to say I was pleasantly pleased with the extra mile they went in terms of extra features on their new BULLET FOR THE GENERAL Blu-ray

    I'm looking for X-Rated Kult's Die Nonnen von Clichy (Les Demons, 1972).
    Does anyone know if it's still being sold somewhere?

    Danke, Geten.


    Regarding LOVE LETTERS OF A PORTUGUESE NUN, what is the difference between the VIP Swiss / German edition and the Anchor Bay U.K. edition?
    Is the Anchor Bay edition cut, missing footage, or missing a language option?

    Richard -- The Anchor Bay UK edition is heavily cut. Susan Hemingway was only 16 at the time the film was made, so the BBFC required that all of her nude scenes be trimmed from the film. This rendered more than one scene completely incoherent. The Swiss Edition is completely uncut.

    Unfortunately, the Anchor Bay has more/better language options but the cuts make it a dud.

    One of my favorite Franco films...

    Thanks for your good reply, Apronifoff. Someone sent me a clone of the VIP edition years ago, so I know the film. Now that I'm trying to buy the DVD I haven't been able to find it at a sane price. I might be able to buy the box-set cheaper than the one film individually. I was thinking about getting the Anchor Bay, but you put a stop to that notion.
