Ridiculous third outing based on the mythic Wolfman Waldemar Daninsky always played by the great Paul Naschy
Inferior entry about Werewolf with the unforgettable Waldemar Daninsky-Jacinto Molina , under pseudonym Paul Naschy .

While Waldemar goes on a murderous rampage every time the moon is full and unleashing the werewolf from his chains to terrorize innocents round abouts .
Continental Europe's biggest horror star again with his classic character and horrifying to viewer . Jacinto Molina Aka Paul Naschy ,who recently passed away, was actor,screenwriter and director of various film about the personage based on fictitious character, the Polish count Waldemar Daninsky . The first entry about Waldemar was ¨The mark of the Wolfman (1967)¨ by Enrique Eguiluz , it was such a box office hit that Jacinto went on filming successive outings as ¨Night of Walpurgis¨, ¨Fury of the Wolfman¨ , ¨Doctor Jekill and the Wolfman¨ , and once again¨The return of the Walpurgis¨, ¨Howl of the devil¨. After ¨The craving¨ it was such a box office disaster that Jacinto was bankrupt. He was forced to turn to Japan for making artist documentaries, as he filmed 'Madrid Royal Palace and Museum of Prado' and he gets financing from Japanese producers for ¨The human beasts¨, the first co-production Spanish-Japan and followed ¨The beast and the magic sword(1982)¨ that is filmed in Japan and for the umpteenth time ¨Licantropo(1998) and finally even directed by Fred Olen Ray in ¨Tomb of the Werewolf(2004) with Michelle Bauer.
It's a B series entertainment with abundant sensationalistic scenes and a Naif style and plenty of flaws and gaps .The movie has a bit of ridiculous gore with loads of blood similar to tomato and is occasionally an engaging horror movie full of fights, curses, and several other things. This time Paul Nashy/Jacinto Molina exhibits little breast but he was a weightlifting champion. Here Waldemar takes on a mad doctor , freaks and a werewolf in some moving fighting scenes. Pretty slow going, but hang in there for the struggle Daninsky versus another she-wolf . Very bad cinematography by Leopoldo Villaseñor is accompanied by a lousy remastering . Filmed in Manzanares and Navacerrada, Madrid and Talamanca De Jarama, location in which were shot most part these horror movies. Eerie and atmospheric musical score by Angel Arteaga, saga's usual .The motion picture written by Naschy is absurdly directed by Jose Maria Zabalza and regularly played by Jacinto Molina , a slick craftsman and mediocre actor . The flick will appeal to Paul Naschy fans and terror genre enthusiast.
