Soledad Mirada is easy on the eyes!
15 September 2000 | by DVD ManiacSee all my reviews

Jess Franco is not known for telling a great story, but he sure knows how to show flesh and he shows it very well in She Killed in Ecstasy.

Dr Johnson is happily married to a beautiful woman (Soledad Miranda). He is conducting experiments on human embryos that he keeps jars in his lab. When he shows his findings to a medical board, they are outraged by what he is doing. They call it blasphemy and immoral. They strip him of his medical license and destroy his lab. This drives him over the edge and he commits suicide. His wife distressed decides to take revenge against the doctors who ruined his life and killed him. She speaks to her dead husband's corpse and promises to get those who did him wrong. She seduces all the doctors including a woman to get her revenge. She finds they are not as moral as they appear to be.

She Killed in Ecstasy is Jess Franco's follow-up to Vampyros Lesbos and features many of the same people who worked on Lesbos, including the late Soledad Miranda as Ms. Johnson. She is breathtakingly seductive as the woman who will do anything to avenge her husband's death. The film has a faster pace than Franco's usual offerings and not to hard to take, as the film does not run to long, plus Soledad's body is easy on the eyes.
