A 'mystery' Jess Franco title - 'He's Dead Because of the Burglars'
A filmography of Jess Franco films in an old issue of the UK horror magazine Samhain (Issue 5, Sept/Oct 1987) has something called 'He's Dead Because of the Burglars' listed as one of his films from 1979, though in my years of reading Franco articles/information I’ve never seen any other reference to this extremely bizarre ‘mystery’ title. Neither have renowned Franco experts Robert Monell and Francesco Cesari. This could be either (a) an obscure retitling (b) a never-filmed project (c) an error by the authors of the filmography (d) a fictitious title made up by someone (e) a long-lost film (unlikely). Note that The Hot Death aka 99 Women has been erroneously included here.
