Waverly Hills.
3 April 2011 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

A doctor joins the staff of a women's insane asylum and falls in love with one hysterical female nut.His methods of curing patients are quite liberal."Las Melancolicas" doesn't work as a horror movie.In fact this is a drama set in a mental asylum.Apart from one lesbian/hetero orgy sequence there is not enough sex and nudity for exploitation fans.The characters are weak and often irritating and the storyline is quite dull.The film is competently directed and offers some political statement.So if you are a fan of early 70's Spanish horror genre you may give this rarity a try,but don't expect anything exciting or sleazy.Jesus Franco it ain't.6 mental asylums out of 10.
