Review: Loreley’s Grasp (1974)

This is one of those monster movies, where the monster-suit is so awkward/stupid-looking that they fill it up with sexy women, tons of blood and great atmosphere to make it work.

A brutal murder of a local woman stir up the little German/Austrian/Swiss(?) village. They find out that their main prospect of protection has to be the local school of young women. A dandy looking 70’s sex-bomb of a man is the right guy to bring his rifle and protect these hotties. The gruesome murders continues, and it seems like it’s some sort of supernatural force behind it all…

The director behind the “Blind Dead”-movies brings us yet another exploitation-classic from Spain. It’s got the atmosphere, the gore and enough sexy girls to make us don’t give a rat’s ass about the stupid monster costume. The story is loosely based on German folklore, as Schumann, Liszt and Wagner made great music of. This is a fun mix of everything great eurotrash from the 70’s was all about!
