Shock Xpress - Georges Franju

Having more or less exhausted the first Shock Xpress book, this series now turns its attention to the second book. This book opens auspiciously with an article on the films of the excellent French cinéaste Georges Franju, titled "Masks, Masques and the Illusion of Reality" by David Taylor.

Surprisingly, I could find only two trailers to Georges Franju films on YouTube. I've already posted his documentary Le Sang Des Betes, here.

La Tête Contre les Murs
(Georges Franju, 1959)

Les Yeux Sans Visage
(Georges Franju, 1960)
