Great Fun with comics comedy action and meta
satire. Mildly edgy with ultraviolent gore but No
sex, no, no. Hollywood don't like that, but still
very entertaining for infantile grown-ups and a
1000 times better than the Live movie flop

Romantic and a bit sexy nonsense comedy with

St. Ives, a 1976 so-so crime mystery, a cult movie or
a classic? No, no, could've been made for TV, but
Charles Bronson is a phenomena and during the

Spanish Gialli and Horror movies from The Golden
Iberian Era, the 1970's and early 1980's are pure
Gold. Bad or Good, Trash or Not, they are almost
all great and very entertaining. It was something
special about that unique Iberian atmosphere

Bad Spanish Films ?

Good Good or Good Bad, don't we all just Love the Spanish 1970's films.
The Hombre Lobo - Paul Naschy, Amando De Ossorio, Jorge Grau, Joseph
Larraz, Carlos Aured, Javier Aquirre, Eugenio Martin and Jesús Franco etc.
These gialli and horror genre movies were all fine and are much appreciated
by fans from all over the world .... BUT, what about the seldom seen Other
films, the dramas, the comedies and the sex movies - are they Bad Bad ?

 

The Best film of 2010. A slow and haunting
love story, Central American roadmovie and

Jewel can be seen in films like The Return of the
Living Dead, Hollywood Hot Tubs and Christina.
Model, dancer, actress, writer and author of the
hilariously funny "If i'm so Famous, How Come
Nobody's Ever Heard of Me?" in 1996

Jewel Shepard

Beloved B-movie actress and famous scream queen in the 1980's
and also a talented writer . Jewel was gorgeous and can be seen
at the height of her beauty in the obscure Euro sex-adventure
Christina from 1984. Just stunning, and hilarious to read about
the filming of this absurd Euro-sleaze in her funny book

 

Whimsical C-grade softcore sex-adventure filmed
mainly in Mallorca, Spain based on a series of books
about a nymphomaniac heiress and her adventures.
Trashy and unintentionally funny, BUT with the
LOVELY Jewel Shepard as Christina. Stunning!
