4.0 out of 5 stars Franco Drops The Sleaze., 26 Oct 2010
Duluoz Lautrec (Dewsbury, Yorkshire.) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Devil's Island Lovers/Night Of The Assassin [DVD] (DVD)
Both these films highlight the fact that Franco could've been a great sleaze free legitimate director, 'Devil's Island Lovers' has a more rounded script about a couple framed for murder before being sent down and there's no nudity whatsoever although this Tartan edition has 30 minutes of alternative footage which contains some spanking, a lesbian romp, a threesome and some electro shock therapy.
'Night Of The Assassins' is like the illegitimate love child of Edgar Allan Poe and Tennessee Williams, set in Louisiana around the time of the civil war(?) with mention of a copper from Scotland Yard, Yorkshire and Devon and more murders than a Fred West barbecue, again it's story driven rather than flesh driven and even the dusky Lina Romay keeps her blouse on most of the time.
I'll be honest and admit that I like a nice dollop of gratuitous nudity (Lina Romay in 'Female Vampire' to name but one) but I found this slice of Franco extremely watchable.
