Movie Info

This dark, surrealistic horror film from cult filmmaker Jesus Franco is perhaps best-remembered for its images of the lethal Miss Muerte (Estella Blain) luring victims with razor-sharp fingernails while clad in a skull-mask and a revealing bodysuit. The real star of the film is Mabel Karr, portraying Irma von Zimmer, daughter of a mad scientist whose public humiliation led to his fatal heart attack.

Audience Reviews for Miss Muerte (Miss Death and Dr. Z in the Grip of the Maniac) (The Diabolical Dr. Z)

This was the first Franco flick I've seen and I've got to say I was impressed. I would love to see what Diabolical Dr. Z would've looked like in color, but it likely would've killed the atmospheric qualities of the movie. The Miss Death sequence was great (and hot in an odd way) as was the hallway fight towards the end. This was a very pleasant surprise and a very fun watch.

A pure, cinematic triumph! Franco's best work and one of the most unpretentious, exciting and unexpected delights of all movies! The crisp, moody black & white photography lends a creepy air to this somewhat familiar story made 100% new through Franco's eye. Mabel Karr, as Irma, and Estella Blain, as Nadja, are simply amazing. Both gorgeous, deadly women. Make no mistake, the film is on their side, although they may be evil. And damn right, too! Here's a movie that is made by a man who is completely in love with cinema. Every frame drips with atmosphere, every plot point seems vaguely like a reference to some piece of celluloid history or pulp story. Sit back, turn off all the lights and prepare to be amazed. One of the absolute best...
