This has probably been posted once already, but anything worth doing is worth overdoing. I know a few of you Franco fanatics already have these, I'm picking both of them up this Friday. heard from two people that Justine isn't that great,I don't know exactly what this means in relation to a Franco film anymore. When dealing with his type of cinema "isn't that great" seems a little vague.

I just posted that I got Eugenie today... plan on watching it tonight. It's said to be his best film, so we'll see. I've only seen the abbreviated Justine, aka Deadly Sanctuary, and I found it deadly dull with a Jack Palance performance that must be seen to be believed. :)

The 124 minute version of Justine is supposed to be a remarkable improvement, over Deadly Sanctuary. Perhaps the full version has all the kinky action Franco is known for? I'll remain skeptical for now. Eugenie, Franco's best film? News to me. Can't be his worst.

I didn't think Justine was bad at all, although Palance does come off like a crack-addict.

Just read the review of Justine over at Eccentric cinema. He basically rakes it over the coals. That's three reviews I've read that slam it,hard. I may wait a little while for this one. Should be a lot of copies on Ebay going real cheap, soon.

i didnt think Justine was nearly as bad as everyone says it is, its definitally not great, but not bad either
Eugenie is very good on the other hand, and ranks up there after Vampyros Lesbos and Female Vampire in my book

I can't wait to see Eugenie, and Justine still holds interest for me. Let us know when and if you trade/sale that disc DefJeff. :)

I happen to think Justine's one of Franco's best films and for me that's saying a lot. I love the fact that on the surface it seems like a big epic but all the little Franco touches overpower any grand aspirations. What better reason is there for cinema other than to provide sick maniacs with outlets to influence us lemmings?
