I'm the richest man in the world...in the world!

Oh, I wanted to like this. i really really wanted to enjoy another Lina Romay performance in a Jesus Franco film.

Sure, there would be sexploitation and weirdness, but it sill would be good. Or, so I thought.

The cinematography was excellent and the music really added to the atmosphere, but the present of the actors detracted from that.

Sure, there are plenty of breasts and a bushy vadge or two, along with sex and masturbation, but that is not why I watch a film. I also want some semblance of a story, and I just could not find one.

A crazy old man (Paul Lapidus) lives with a half dozen others on a remote island, where supplies are boated in. he supposedly has treasure hidden on the island, and others want to find it before he goes completely crazy.

Too late. he loses it and blood flows.
