Love or hate his films. You really had to respect the man for what he did. Really a loss to the world of B-Movie/Exploitation Cinema.

Absolutely. His movies were strange and perverted, but he was a master of the camera.
RIP

ďI don't like my movies.  I prefer John Ford's movies....I donít think Iíve done anything important or magnificent. Iím a worker, and the thing I prefer in my life is cinema. When Iím working in cinema, Iím happy. And thatís all, you know?Ē
- in a 2009 interview

Not magnificent, but certainly distinctive.  RIP good sir.

Really, man!
I'm still trying to find out what the heck the point of A Virgin Among The Living Dead was...but then again every time I saw that hot blonde in the see-thru nightgown with nothing on underneath, I suddenly forgot what it was I was looking for in the movie!  BounceGiggle

The Nine have proven formidable foes..as the last of the Ayleids, I stand today and fight for all my people to realize the dream the Pellani have taken from us, our beloved Tamriel..

Today I may win, or I may go home by a road I do not understand, but Tamriel will shine again, and my blade shall be glazed with the blood of the zealots who worship the Nine with their false hero Pelinal Whitestrake. A god does not bleed, but a man does, and Pelinal is only a man.

I've enjoyed several of his movies.  Really appreciated his attitude - he wasn't egotistical and didn't have any elevated opinion of himself;  he just wanted to entertain people and give us stuff to enjoy.

RIP Mr. Franco.

I see no problem with that at all. I'm at my happiest when I'm at work, working with the only thing that I truly understand: film. Just that, nothing more.  TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    • Osmosis: os∑mo∑sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
