Growing up under Franco, Paul Naschy probably knew all about horror.
In “El Retorno del Hombre-Lobo” (called “The Craving” in English), Paul Naschy returns as his most famous character, werewolf Waldemar Daninsky. This time, he gets executed along with alleged vampire Countess Elizabeth Bathory (Julia Saly). But, as always seems to happen in horror flicks, they both get resurrected and go on a rampage. Specifically, they get resurrected by hot students Erika, Karen and Barbara. In fact, Daninsky turns against Bathory. You can probably guess what happens from there.
If you watch any of the DVDs of Paul Naschy’s movies, the special features include an interview with him about his life. He talks some about growing up under Franco. One gets the feeling that he knew first-hand about horror, far more than a werewolf movie could portray. But no matter; this movie will surely please Naschy’s fans.
This is “the werewolf vs the vampire woman” # 2 …
Ah, the first Daninsky movie of the eighties … here I refer to Midnight Video’s version entitled “Night of the Werewolf”, which is pretty good quality but has annoying non-removable subtitles.
When a movie opens with a bunch of satanists being sentenced to gruesome deaths including buried alive, tortured, hanged, beheaded, and so forth … you know you must be in for good, clean B-movie horror. The chief witch in question of course swears a terrible revenge (haven’t we already been here in Molina’s “Curse of the Devil”?), and among the condemned is the werewolf Waldemar Daninsky himself, sporting a rather stylish beard. He gets off comparatively lightly, being made to wear an iron mask and having a silver dagger driven through his heart. Centuries later, an evil witch finds a medallion in order to resurrect the ancient chief witch, and as fate would have it a couple of grave-robbers remove the dagger of Daninsky’s heart at exactly the same moment. Time for a “Werewolf vs the Vampire Woman” rematch …
Jacinto Molina opted to direct this one himself, as well as the two other Daninsky movies made in the eighties. This means he has more control over the project than ever before, and contrary to what some say, I think he’s actually a very good director. Probably the best ever to direct a Daninsky movie, anyway, and obviously he can capture his own artistic vision like nobody else could. This is probably why it feels more conventional and competent than most movies in the series. The sets are great, the special effects are good for it’s time and the whole movie has a fantastic atmosphere to it. There is more gratuitous nudity and gore than in most Daninsky movies, and I’m surprised it hasn’t been a bigger hit with fans of the genre. There are certainly enough werewolves, witches, vampires, zombies and horrible sacrifices to keep them entertained! Maybe I’m going overboard with the praise, but if you’ve seen the earlier Daninsky movies, you’ll know that in most ways this is pretty damn good comparatively. The dubbing is actually pretty good (although dubbing is always a crime, of course), and they’ve tried to make the dialogue as hip as possible. Man, I just love the eighties mentality. The soundtrack is also very cool. Okay, okay, so the storyline is pretty much the same predictable stuff all over again. And once again it has no real consistency with the previous movies. But that’s why we love it! Obviously it’s not an easy movie to watch, it’s arguably slow and there’s some particularly dark stuff going on even for a Daninsky movie. Daninsky himself is something of an anti-hero, saving maidens in distress but also allowing his wolf side to run around slaughtering innocents. The vampires are very creepy and unearthly, as Molina has always been good at knowing how to portray them.
“El Retorno del Hombre-Lobo”, “The Craving”, “Night of the Werewolf” … call it what you like, this is my favourite Daninsky movie yet. It’s “The Werewolf vs the Vampire Woman” as it should have been, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
