What ensues next is a lover's triangle, and a savage sadistic Mr. Hyde who roams modern London and transforms into a werewolf on the disco floor. Written by
Paul Naschy is probably most famous for this set of films, but personally I tend to find them disappointing. As the title suggests, this time Naschy's favourite "Homo Lobo" character is mixed in with Robert Louis Stephenson's classic characters Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde...the result is rather confusing since Paul Naschy himself plays both characters. I would have to say that this is one of the worst films in Naschy's series (although I have to admit that I haven't seen them all) and the reason for that is really down to the plot. It seems like they couldn't be bothered to do anything really interesting with it, and what we end up with is the two characters in a movie together with a couple of innocents in the middle - it doesn't make for very exciting viewing. Add to that the fact that none of the cast members (including Naschy himself) could really be bothered either. The acting is bad even for a low budget Spanish horror movie and the pace of the film is also very slow and boring, which ensures that the film is in no way an exciting viewing. There's not even anything resembling a decent horror atmosphere to make up for it. The film fails to create any interest at all for most of the duration and by the time it got to the end, I wasn't really bothered what might happen. Overall, this is not a film worth seeing and I don't recommend it.
