R.I.P. Jess Franco, 82

Sad, sad news for all cult movie fans…..the great grindhouse master, Jess Franco, has passed at the age of 82. Jesus “Jess” Franco was responsible for classics like Necronomicon, Vampyros Lesbos and The Diabolical Dr. Z, and was known to have single handedly created the erotic horror genre. 180 movies in 54 years — now we would like to see a Hollywood director beat that!
