99 WOMEN REVIEWED
“99 Women” is Jess Franco working comfortably in his wheelhouse. There’s something about women in prison that was just so sensational in the 1960s and 70s. Now, it’s standard soap opera fare on Netflix. What I love about this film is Franco’s inability to stick the lesbian love angle. So, the prison gets a few male prisoners just to get some carnal action happening. It’s funny, but it’s pretty indicative of Franco in that era.
For those wanting to know they should grab the set, well it’s stacked. Mixing the original soundtrack CD with probably every special feature ever made about the movie matters. I love the attention that Blue Underground pays to the Franco library. Other releasing houses could take note on how to treat their genre directors. Couple that with the cleanest DTS-HD Mono of 2016 and you’ve got quite the winner.
