Decent Remake
10 March 2008 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

El Hotel de los Ligues (1981)

** (out of 4)

Jess Franco remakes his own 1978 film That Certain Taste and does it pretty much a direct scene for scene remake. As before, three couples are having sexual problems until a porn star (Lina Romay) shows up and teaches them a few lessons. The first film was a pure hardcore movie but this one here is a lot cleaner, ala softcore. The pacing here is really sluggish and all the supporting characters are a real drag, which wasn't the case with the original. Lina Romay is full of energy and is the only reason to seek this one out.
