Bloody Moon, Nubile Babes Naked and Bloody

The Oxford English Dictionary defines 'Euro-Trash' as a European film style in which nubile and naked babes hop around and are slashed while in the throes of pre-marital sex or other naughty endeavors. This very scientific definition may present an over generalized picture of true 'Euro-Trash,' however, 1981's Jesus Franco film from Spain, "Bloody Moon," fits it well.
The grotesquely disfigured Miguel (Alexander Waechter) stabs a nude and nubile babe to death as he tries to rape her. This gets him five years in an insane asylum. After that, his sultry sister Manuela (Nadja Gerganoff) claims him and will be his guardian. Miguel and Manuela love each other fact the brother and sister love each other more than any brother and sister should. Manuela brings Miguel back to the women's language school, which she is an administrator.. It is also the scene of the murder. There, every language student is a sultry Euro-babe, just bursting at the seems to rip off their clothes and engage in pre-marital sex.
Also arriving is Angela (Olivia Pascal), a real Euro-doll. Every potential rapist and killer drool over her. One by one, her sultry friends are killed in acts of pre-marital sex and the killer let's her know she is next. No one believes Angela and the bodies of her friends never show up. Now as her bestie Inga (Jasmin Losensky) is decapitated with an industrial granite saw (and what a beautiful thing that was to behold), Angela is truly next. Decapitations, impalement, immolation,  and poisonous snakes will all beset the lovelies at the school. Suspects? Everyone...including Miguel and...yes...the over amorous Manuela.
As some uber-sultry babes die horribly in states of nudity, Angela runs a lot and screams nicely. As the killer closes in on the ravishing babe, the corpses start showing up, playing havoc with her sanity. Is Miguel the killer, or is that too easy? Since this is Euro-Trash, may the killer be a demented lesbian with a weird fetish? Is this Jesus Franco film a thinly veiled metaphor for the misogyny contained in the Brexit movement's desire to separate from the EU? Yeah...probably not. In any event, if watching lovely Euro-actresses in the nude, having pre-marital sex, and getting cut up is your thing...then enjoy "Bloody Moon."


  1. It appears Manuel is no stranger to a variety of ways to murder, provided he gets his nut first! Good job Chris 👍

  2. Franco defeated the commies and Jesus made wearing robes popular, Jesus Franco, you have done it again!!!

  3. I've seen a number of Jesus (Jess) Franco directed films. Hard not to just from massive volume of works. Franco has 207 directing credits according to @IMDb . Haven't seen "Bloody Moon" yet but My favorite of his was "Count Dracula"(1970) Christopher Lee, Herbert Lom, Klaus Kinski, Maria Rohn fantastic take of Stokers classic!
