Often called the Spanish Lon Chaney, genre icon Paul Naschy was the only horror film actor to portray Dracula, The Mummy, Frankenstein, Fu Manchu, the Hunchback, the Witchfinder General, Rasputin and, in his greatest creation, the werewolf Count Waldemar Daninsky. Director Angel Agudo’s informative documentary on the champion weightlifter turned brawny Iberian national treasure is a heartfelt celebration of the man born Jacinto Molina Alvarez. From his devastating experiences during the Spanish Civil War moulding his future to his work for Profilmes, the Hammer of Madrid, and his classic chiller legacy, including HELL’S CREATURES, HORROR RISES FROM THE TOMB and BLUE EYES OF THE BROKEN DOLL, the full Naschy is here. Hosted by Mick Garris, with observations by John Landis and Joe Dante, anecdotes from his family and friends and reminiscences by co-star Caroline Munro, this moving testament features amazing archive footage and wonderful clips from his Euro horror career.
