“The most prolific of Euro-Cult directors, Jess Franco wrote and directed at least 200 films in a career that spanned 57 years: 1955-2013. Franco was a compulsive filmmaker with a scattered filmography that presents a daunting challenge to scholars trying to impose some semblance of order on the director’s protean output” (Diabolique Magazine).
One of nine feature films credited to Euro sleazemaster Jess Franco in 1975, THE HOT NIGHTS OF LINDA perfectly encapsulates Franco’s ability to titillate and shock and the same time.
Alice Arno (JUSTINE DE SADE) stars as a secretary sent to the seaside estate of a depraved millionaire, his nymphomaniac daughter (Franco’s beloved muse Lina Romay), her invalid cousin (Catherine Lafferiere, EXORCISM) and their grunting houseboy. But when her day’s work ends, a nightmare of depraved new duties will begin! Paul Muller (BARBED WIRE DOLLS) costars in this Uncle Jess jaw-dropper packed with incest, lesbianism, sadism and murder, restored from a 35mm print discovered in a Barcelona bordello.
