Many of you out there probably lament that you cannot attend Weird Wednesday which happens at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz in Austin, Texas. Have no fear for this week, as I have the introduction the host Lars did for Jess Franco's women in prison classic, 99 Women. Click ahead for a full video of his introduction and get a small taste of why this film series is so legendary and addictive.
99 Women is a really loving ode to women prisons and Rosalba Neri in thigh highs, that Franco helmed in a year he made around only 9 other films. The film is capped by one of the most eccentric and outright oddly brilliant prison ward performances in the history of cinema in the form of Mercedes McCambridge as Thelma Diaz.
