Jose Larraz


Born - 10 December 1928, Barcelona, Spain
Died - 3 September 2013

Bespectacled, foxlike Spanish director of would-be erotic horror films and Bond-style action rip-offs - all with lots of pretty girls in and out of clothes. At his best, Larraz could make quite scary stuff, although his sense of pacing varied from section to section of his films. Sometimes billed as Joseph Larraz in his English-language films (but born Jose Larraz Gil), the director, originally an illustrator and fashion photographer, began making films in his early forties, among them Whirlpool (1970), Deviation (1971), Vampyres (1973),Symptoms (1974, his best film), The Violation of the Bitch (1978), The Golden Lady (1979), Black Candles (1980), Lady Lucifer (1983), Rest in Pieces (1987), Edge of the Axe (1988), Deadly Manor (1990) and Sevila Connection (1992), his last.
