Lina Romay RIP

I'm very sad to hear of Lina Romay's death on February 15th from a cancer related illness. Her braveness in throwing herself completely into her roles was mesmerizing to see. No matter the film I could always get lost in her big, dark eyes. She was an icon of European genre cinema and my heart goes out to Jess Franco in his time of grief.

She was always a memorably arresting presence in each of her films (whether or not a particular movie was any good). A fearlessly brave performer and sexy as hell in her prime.

R.I.P., Ms. Romay.
