    (May 12, 1930-April 2, 2013)
    Born in Madrid, Spain
    Prolific Spanish director known for his low budget films featuring copious amounts of sex, violence, and horror
    Directed; 'The Diabolical Dr Z,' 'Killer Barbys,' 'Vampire Blues,' 'Lola 2000,' 'Jack the Ripper (1976),' 'Vampiros Lesbos,' and 'The Blood of Fun Manchu'

    Most of his stuff is beyond belief awful.
    Much of his work is very sexually explicit, includes hard core porn, and portrays violence against and/or the exploitation of women.
    He acted in most of his films.
    He used many pseudonyms and sometimes used the real names of his actors.
    He was a lawyer.
    He re-did his films for re-releases and sometimes used shots from one film in other films.
    He admitted he doesn't like his own work.
    Much of his stuff is not available in English speaking countries.
    He's arrogant and quick tempered and had his very sanity questioned.
    In over forty years of film making he directed over 200 films, (possibly a record) wrote over 160 films, acted in at least 80, and composed the music for at least sixty.
    His use of zoom focus, tracking shots, and hand held cameras was very influential on other film makers.
    He liked jazz and used to be a jazz musician himself.
    He usually went by 'Jess.'
    He's known for bringing movies in on time and under budget.
    He discovered ill-fated actress Soledad Miranda, gave her her start and was reportedly crushed by her tragic death.
