Episode 652: A Virgin Among the Living Dead (1973)

Episode: 652: A Virgin Among the Living Dead (1973) Guest Co-Hosts: Jessica Shires, Heather Drain

Jessica Shires joins Mike White and Heather Drain to discuss her Patreon request: Jesús Franco's 1973 film A Virgin Among the Living Dead. It’s the story of Christina ("Christina von Blanc"), a young woman who is summoned to her family’s mansion after the suicide of her father. There we meet her odd family. The film plays out somewhere between a dream and a nightmare following its own pace and logic.

We discuss the film's strange pedigree (and the directorial additions by Pierre Quérut and Jean Rollin), how difficult it was tracking down genre films in the Video Search of Miami days, and the seductive power of Carmen Yazalde.
