director Vicente Aranda
The Blood Spattered Bride offers lots of Freudian/Jungian imagery relating to brutal masculinity and sexuality.
Director Vicente Aranda deals not so much in pulp but in the artsier vein, ultimately channeling Sheridan Le Fanu’s oft-channeled Carmilla into some lesbian vampire biz. With a proto-feminist heft.
“Destroy his masculinity!”
The best scene is the most surreal, when the husband finds the naked blonde buried in wet sand at the beach, having survived through her snorkel. Digging her out and feeling her up in one act.
