Stephen Thrower on 'The Sadist of Notre Dame' (2018)
*** 1/2 (out of 4)
Historian Stephen Thrower is back yet again to discuss another Jess Franco movie. The movie being discussed here is the 1979 THE SADIST OF NOTRE DAME, which takes footage from the previous movie EXORCISM. As you'd expect, Thrower does another wonderful job talking about how SADIST went into production and he gives us a great breakdown of what was going on with Franco's personal life at this time as well as his own thoughts about this version of the film. Thrower also goes over the various versions of EXORCISM including the hardcore version, which Franco himself took part of the action. Clips from this version are showed and it's really too bad a complete form was never released by Redemption. If you're a fan of Franco then you'll certainly enjoy this featurette as it contains a great deal of information on all three versions of the film including their release history and where they stack up compared to one another.
