yeah it is a good documentary. Well worth seeing the rest of the series if people haven't. Honestly I wasn't sure which board it belonged to. If Jeremy thinks it belongs in the Jean Rollin Video's board by all means move it. I'm not sure how to.

I love this documentary, and whole series as well.  I remember getting copies from European Trash Cinema back in the day.  I'll see if I can figure out how to move this to the other forum (no big deal either way).  Thanks for sharing Draw!

Only saw the Jess Franco and (of course) Jean Rollin episodes. I'll watch the José Larraz episode one of these days.
Lovely series.

Yes, those Eurotika episodes are all great. Incredible to think there was a time not so long ago when this sort of thing could be commissioned for British TV.

For a bit of UK-based background, Channel 4 often used to program a few hours of "weird", cheaply made programming in the early hours of the morning, presumably trying to catch the "just got back from the pub" / insomniac stoner market. The show 'Euro-Trash' - mainly consisting of light-hearted items on porn and sex related topics, "hilariously" overdubbed with bad French & German accents - proved a big hit in this slot, so presumably 'Eurotika' came into existence as an off-shoot of its success, commissioned on the basis that it would provide plenty of kinky Euro-kitsch stuff, softcore nudity, random b-movie laffs etc. Thank god they got someone as knowledgeable and dedicated as Pete Tombs to oversee it anyway - in the wrong hands it could have been dreadful.

The Jean Rollin interview on Eurotrash (Episode #6.4) was so stupid and disrespectful! I hated every minute of it!

I didn't know Rollin was featured on 'Eurotrash', but yeah, I can well imagine that must have been pretty horrible, given the show's general tone of mockery toward everything they covered. Poor Jean. : (

I will see the Eurotrash episode with Jean Rollin -- can't judge it before I seen it.
