Did You Know?


When Samuel M.Sherman was screening foreign titles for a suitable 'Frankenstein,' he actually passed on "Assignment Terror" (original title "The Man Who Came from Ummo"), Paul Naschy's sequel to "La Marca del Hombre Lobo," which was completed in 1967, two years before its followup. Ironically, the film he passed on combined Naschy's werewolf with a Dracula, Mummy, and Frankenstein monster, though under different names, and starred Michael Rennie and Karin Dor, two internationally known actors.

Crazy Credits

Most English-language prints open with hype-up credits and voiceover boasting "Filmed in 70-millimeter and 3-D" (even in the fuzzy 8mm prints for TV) and cartoon-drawing intro claiming this to be Frankenstein movie. See more »

Actually a Pretty Fun Flick
16 September 2006 | by (Sleesburg, VA.) – See all my reviews

I am not to familiar with the Paul Naschy WolfMan movies. A good friend of mine has been watching these films for years and told me that I have got to check some of them out. So, where else better to start then with the beginning of the series. A fun start if you ask me.

The story is pretty standard as far as werewolf stories go. A werewolf is on the loose and a group of people go on to try and lynch the creature. Actor Paul Naschy (playing the part of a man named Waldemar) gets attacked and bitten by the werewolf. Soon after, the creature is shot down and killed. Poor Waldemar, he is now inflicted with the curse and must find a way to stop or cure it. He summons the help of a strange doctor and his wife. The problem is they turn out to be vampires with nothing but bad intentions.

Well, for the first movie in the series of about a dozen, this was a lot of fun. I will admit that I was a little bit skeptical sitting down to watch this but I really enjoyed it. Paul Naschy is awesome in the role of the tormented Waldemar. The transformation scenes are pretty nifty, even if they are low budget. Naschy as the werewolf looks pretty good and is pulled off nicely.

I think one of the highlights for me was the music score. This really brought forth a lot of atmosphere and gave the movie life. Without this, I don't believe the movie would have had such a nice impact.

If you like horror this is a must see. 7/10
