Spanish title NECROPHAGUS
also known as EL
DESCUARTIZADOR DE BINBROOK [The Butcher of Binbrook]
and THE GRAVEYARD OF HORROR [American English Edit]
Miguel Madrid (as Michael Skaife)
starring: Bill Curran · Beatriz Lacy · Yocasta Grey · Frank Brana · Catharina
Ellison · Victor Israel
Scotland, this is the story of a rich aristocrat named Michael Sherrington
who returns home to discover that his wife died during childbirth. Neither
the family nor her doctor can provide a logical story, so Michael begins
to suspect foul play. He sneaks into the cemetery and digs up her coffin
which is - shockingly - empty, as are many other graves. But his search
for the truth is horrifyingly interrupted by a creature that claws its
way from under the ground.
Madrid began his career as a scriptwriter for [and assistant to] director
Joe Lacy (Jose Maria Elorietta, of SPECTRE
OF TERROR fame). This motion picture was his debut project and
managed to win the Grand Gold Medal at the 1971 Semana International Film
Festival. He followed this project with the cult favorite KILLING
OF THE DOLLS two years later. Later, Mr Madrid worked with controversial
maverick director Manuel Esteba (VICIOUS
AND NUDE and SEXO
SANGRIENTO [Bloody Sex]) before his death in 1996 at age 62.
critic Gim Wilinson wrote "NECROPHAGUS is of
the most supremely bizarre horror films ever!" but was also quick
to mention: "It is advised that the movie be watched in the language
it is shot in, Spanish, as the English dubbing in the American release
is truly appalling."
