Naschy's Rarest and Most Sought-After Film
Original Spanish Title: EL AULLIDO DEL DIABLO
director: Paul Naschy
starring: Paul Naschy · Caroline Munroe · Howard Vernon · Roberta Kuhn
· Fernando Hilbeck
Naschy plays numerous roles in this film about a washed-up actor named
Hector Doriani who likes to pick up prostitutes and reenact various scenes
from his past horror movies... Scenes that end with the girl's gruesome
death. He plays Mr Hyde, Rasputin, Quasimodo, Fu Manchu, Frankenstein
Monster, the Devil, werewolf Waldemar Daninsky and the Phantom of the
Opera. Howard Vernon (the icon from most every Jess Franco film) stars
as the butler Erik and his job is to bring unsuspecting hookers to their
death at the foreboding mansion. Interestingly, although the whores are
often tortured by Hector Doriani, their deaths are usually at the hands
of a mysterious knife-welding, black-gloved killer (who - in Giallo fashion
- may or may not be Hector).
deaths include axe murder, sexual mutilation, throat slashing and disembowelment.
Plus there is also the stunning Caroline Munro. The movie, written and
directed by Paul Naschy, serves as a homage to his career [he would tread
on similar ground for BLOOD
RED in 2004] but this project seems even more personal. It's no
accident that his real-life son Sergio is also in the cast.
this motion picture was never release (in form form) in the United States.
And it remains one of Paul Naschy's rarest, most sought-after films. In
the mid 2000s, Paul to Brazil for Ivan Cardoso's tailor-made WEREWOLF
IN THE AMAZON. That would be his final motion picture. Paul Naschy
died of pancreatic cancer at age 75 in 2009.
