Written and Directed by Jacinto Molina (Paul Naschy)
A Dalmata Films, S.A. production

Filmed in the real castles of Spain, The Night of the Werewolf is one of Naschy’s most impressive films, a sumptuous Gothic feast that pits Naschy’s werewolf, Waldemar Daninsky, against the Blood Countess herself, Elizabeth Bathory.  Filled with werewolf transformations, seductive vampire women, bloody stakes and piercing silver daggers, the film has garnered praise for its fantastical inventiveness and use of macabre imagery.  It remains one of the crowning glories of international horror cinema.

Vengeance of the Zombies

Starring Paul Naschy, Romy, Mirta Miller, Vic Winner and Maria Kosti
Written by Jacinto Molina (Paul Naschy)
Directed by Leon Klimovsky
A Profilmes Film, S.A. production

Vengeance of the Zombies offers a triple threat performance by Naschy as a Hindu mystic, his evil brother and the Devil himself.  Zombies, satanic voodoo rituals and gruesome killings combine to make Vengeance of the Zombies a bizarre ride in the best horror tradition, a film that defines the term “Euro-cult” as few other films can. Reportedly, practitioners of the black arts have found hidden meanings in the film!!
