LA DONNA LUPO (1999)-IN ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBS, LETTERBOXED PRINT. Director: Aurelio Grimaldi, Stars: Loredana Cannata, Arturo Paglia, Pascal Persiano. As sex films go this is top drawer. It has very good production values. The music especially is excellent--it's interesting and varied and not the usual sub-Kenny G. crap found in sex films. The cinematography is also very good (and it's 35-mm film rather than digital video). The lead Loredana Catanada is absolutely stunning and a truly natural beauty (sans the over-sized silicone tits that come standard with most porn stars today). She was also a good enough actress to eventually break into the mainstream (despite the fact that some of her sex scenes here would technically be considered hardcore). As for the the plot, well, it's serviceable if very generic. Cantanada is the titular (and ass-ular)"she-wolf" who picks up one anonymous man after another, sometimes two at a time. She won't tell them her name or she gives them a fake one. The conflict arises when a naive, directionless college student falls in love with her and tries to get her to change her ways.

His inquiry leads him to all kinds of red light establishments and adds to the entertainment.

The plots of the individual segments are necessarily simple but each short film is better than the last. Robert Ryan is peripherally involved in each and his cynical narration seems appropriate only for the last story where even the good guys are bad. Italian, French, and British filmmakers each take their turn in presenting the trio of espionage tales.

LOVERS OF THE LORD OF DARKNESS (1986)-IN SPANISH WITH ENGLISH SUBS.

Vega takes her surrogate daughter to see a local bruja to put a spell on a local boy after he has left for college in the US. Convinced he will forget her, she asks Saurina the witch to compel him to return to her no matter what. Vega is worried that THE LORD OF THE NIGHT will take over the girl’s soul and of course that’s what happens. The result is murder, complete body dismemberment, and the ruination of everyone involved. Vega’s only directorial effort, I imagine she had a Hell of a time getting it done in Macho Mexico (in fact it took her 4 years to get released after it was finished), is quite polished and extremely effective. Emilio Fernandez plays a tyrant of a father who murdered his wife over a complete misunderstanding and is quick to tell his daughter he always wanted a son. It’s kind of nice to see him burst into flame at the half way point. Elena de Haro (who is the star but gets no respect in billing or on IMDB) looks a lot like Veronica Lario from TENEBRAE, and successfully changes from local sweetheart to a bitch from Hell. Having a female slant to the film’s perspective made for a refreshing viewing experience.

To ease his son’s fears that he’s been bitten, Antonio takes him to a doctor (Paula Ituriza), who treats the boy’s small bite and sends them on their way with no concerns. Of course, no self-respecting horror pic treats scientists of any stripe with less than contempt and doubt, and that holds true here.
