Release date: 03/10/77

Director: Jess Franco

Cast: Susan Hemingway

Synopsis:

Susan Hemingway, William Berger, Herbert Fux and Ana Zanatti star in a movie so confronting that censorship bans prevented its release for two years.

16-year-old Maria is forced into Serra D'Aires convent, secretly run by Satanists. Her confessor is in collusion with the Mother Superior. Maria is tortured, forced into sex with men, women, and the horned Devil, and told that it's all a bad dream. She writes a letter to God, and a Knight rescues her, only to fall into the hands of the Inquisition, put on the rack, and condemned to death like Joan of Arc.

Love Letters of a Portuguese Nun is a 1977 West German-Swiss movie directed by Jesus Franco and loosely based on the Letters of a Portuguese Nun attributed to Mariana Alcoforado. It tells the story of Maria, a girl in Inquisition-era Portugal, whom a priest sees cavorting with a boy. He orders her to become a nun as penance. In the convent Maria gets subjected to all sorts of torture and humiliation at the hands of the priest and the mother superior. The movie is part of a genre known as "nunsploitation".

79 min

Release date:

Director: Jess Franco

Cast: Janine Reynaud, Howard Vernon, Jack Taylor, Adrian Hoven

Synopsis:

At a chic nightclub for jaded jetsetters, a simulated snuff performance is the main attraction, and Lorna, its leading lady, is the obsession of men and women alike. Little do they realize that Lorna's Mephistophelean manager has transformed her into "the essence of evil... a devil on earth!" Soon the sensuous starlet's stage persona possesses her entirely, thrusting Lorna into a hallucinatory world of sadomasochistic excess and drawing everyone she touches into her debaucherous delirium. Can anyone stop Lorna before her perverse stage show becomes a murderous reality?

Starring the beautiful Janine Reynaud (TWO UNDERCOVER ANGELS, KISS ME, MONSTER), Jack Taylor (THE GHOST GALLEON, THE NINTH GATE) and Howard Vernon (THE AWFUL DR. ORLOFF, DELICATESSEN), Jess Franco's (99 WOMEN, VAMPYROS LESBOS) Faustian fever dream provides the blue-print for the erotic horror that has become the infamous director's enduring legacy.

Sexy Sisters
Sexy Sisters

86 min

Release date: 01/01/77

Director: Jess Franco

Cast: Pamela Standford, Karine Gambier, Jack Taylor, Esther Moser

Synopsis:

From the fevered minds of maverick exploitation filmmaker Jess Franco and notorious Swiss genre movie producer Erwin C. Dietrich, comes SEXY SISTERS!

The film follows 2 stepsisters Edna and Milly, Edna stalks nightclubs looking for men to have sex with, and brings them home. However, upon arrival she disappears, and leaves them to her nymphomaniac stepsister Milly, who has spent the last 6 months chained up in a room by herself and under the supervision of Doctor Barrio. Milly, it turns out was sexually traumatized when she was young by a muscular gigolo who raped her and her sister. But that is not her only problem. Her late Father, a millionaire left her a trust fund of millions of dollars that she will inherit on her 21st birthday, if she is in the right mind to collect it. It turns out that Edna has been working with Barrio to make sure Milly is not at all in her right mind by injecting her with a medication that amps up her sex drive, and turned her into the nymphomaniac that currently is. 

A lot of the Franco films of this period are fun genre romps that are loose on plot, but high on sex and nudity. Sexy Sisters certainly falls into that category. The films first half is consistently mostly sex, and what plot there is only begins to reveal itself in the second half of the film. The film feels like a more narratively strong version of his earlier Nightmares Come at Night as both feel more like a fever dream captured cinematically by Franco.
