Smoldering brunette Lina Romay is the bella donna of Spanish horror skinema. The long-time live-in love of blood-and-boobies auteur Jesus Franco has shown her dusky hot stuff in at least one hundred foreign-language flicks. Even at age forty-three Romay couldn't stop tossing her clothes away; middle-aged and muy caliente, Lina hung her Barcelona beaver in Tender Flesh (1997).
Hot at any age, Romay is a perpetual burning vision of knee-weakening lust, baring her breasts, butt, and frequently furtastic bush while blazing across a head-spinning array of sexedelic cult classics. Beginning as a teen in The Female Vampire (1973), Lina lit up a rapid succession of sanguinely erotic exploitation favorites. The only refuge from the harrowing need of her eyes was the bold beauty of her knowing nymph's body. Generous in youth, she showed it all, including open-sesame buttock views as she squirmed in a bathtub of blood. Beware of racing pulse.
Always naked and always up for lip-smackingly explicit sex scenes—especially of the lesbian variety—Lina embodied Franco and other fired-up filmmakers' fiercest fantasies made flesh. Few other sin screen sirens have busted more dynamically out of the box as Lina does baring all and copulating ferociously in Lorna, The Exorcist (1974); How to Seduce a Virgin (1974); Countess Perverse (1974); Women Behind Bars (1975); The Hot Nights of Linda (1975); Roll-Royce Baby (1975); Exorcism (1975); and Barbed Wire Dolls (1975)—and that's just for starters!
Among Lina's other revered raunch classics are the kinky master-and-servant mind-games and muff-diving in Slaves (1977); the polymorphous perversion of the women-in-prison sextravaganza, Ilsa, the Wicked Warden (1979); and the sapphic sorcery of Macumba Sexual (1983) one of Jess Franco's wildest hybrids of softcore sex and high frights.
