As if the chaos of April, 2013, wasn’t enough for me, I’ve decided to start a new project. I plan to watch every Jess Franco movie I can get my hands on, in chronological order, and blog ’em all in the Brain Drops section of my site. You know — because life is just too darned long and comfortable.

In case you’re wondering why I’d attempt something so questionable for my health and sanity, here’s a little background. And, since the journey off every cliff begins with a single step, here are my first couple of entries:

1959
Tenemos 18 Años

1960
Labios Rojos — not reviewed (lost?)
La Reina del Tabarín

1961
Vampiresas 1930
Gritos en la Noche/The Awful Dr. Orlof

1962
La Muerte Silba un Blues
La Mano de un Hombre Muerto/The Sadistic Baron von Klaus

I figure at this rate, my project is likely to take a year to complete. However, since this is one of those situations where the going just gets rougher the further you go, my guess may be wildly optimistic. Wish me luck!
