I can't blast Placer Sangriento like everyone else on this board. I liked it. It reminded me of early Franco as did Vieyera's later effort, Dr. Humpp. The black & white photography is very atmospheric and moody, the girls are very sexy and the storyline is sleazy enough. Like a lot of horror films of that time, the police procedural footage is dull. I've often wondered if these scenes were meant to be for restroom breaks when they played theatrically. The ominous, memorable central music theme reminded me of the sensational main theme by Allesandro Allesdandrini in a film made years later, The Devil's Nightmare. Placer Sangriento is currently playing in a 20 minute version on Comcast on Demand in the Something Weird section (they sell the full version on DVD).
