Directed by Manuel Esteba
Featuring Ovidi Montllor, Mirta Miller, Diana Conca
Country: Spain
What it is: Sleazy Spanish horror

A group of young women get stranded in a seemingly deserted village when their car breaks down (in reality, the car was sabotaged). They end up staying with a female artist, but one of the women begins to have sinister visions. Then the killings begin…

My copy of this movie is in unsubtitled Spanish, and is consequently rather hard to follow. Granted, with an English title like BLOODTHIRSTY SEX, you should have an idea of what to expect. Yes, there’s plenty of nudity and sex, the latter mostly of the lesbian variety. It remains rather bloodless until the last third of the movie, though the soundtrack goes off enough that you’ll know that scary things are just around the corner. Most of the murders are pretty conventional, though there is one that is sick enough to live up to the title. I found it pretty hard to evaluate the film without subtitles or dubbing, but I’d have to say I wasn’t particularly impressed by it; the horror has kind of a distant, detached feel to it.
