“Films are outmoded, don’t you agree?”

My first exposure to Jess Franco’s cinema came in 1993, when Succubus appeared as part of Redemption’s initial tranche of VHS releases in the UK. It would be disingenuous to say I remember my response to that first viewing, but I think there was a degree of bewilderment, perhaps even disappointment, and this may have been in part due to the film’s failure to deliver on the promises of its box art. How naive I was. It’s probably also fair to say I lacked the patience – or at least the experience – to cope with its ambiguities, its extended dream sequences and elliptical structure.
