Awful Dr. Orlof, The: Remastered Edition

Generally considered the first horror film produced in Spain, The Awful Dr. Orlov (L'horrible Doctor Orlof) launched the career of cult cinema's most colorful figure: Jesus "Jess" Franco." Cloaking the story in the visual style of the Britihs gothic film, Franco injected Orlof with the kind or morbid eroticism that would quickly become the signature (and is presented here in the uncensored French release version).

Howard Vernon stars as a diabolical surgeon who, with the help of his blind minion Morpha (Ricardo Valle), lures beautiful women into the operating room of his stone castle, so they may provide the raw materials for a series of experiemental face grafts for his disfigured daughter.
