Paul Naschy plays a supporting role as a deranged gravedigger in this zombie movie, set in a small highland village in 19th-century Scotland, where a stranger's arrival to claim an inheritance is met with apocalyptic visions and other evil omens. The town unearths a crypt full of horrors, including a devil-worshipping coven and throngs of the living dead. Written by
Paul Naschy had to play a secondary role as Igor the gravedigger because he was acting in another movie being shot at the exact same time. See more »
When confronted by two of the zombies after escaping the catacombs, Serges shoots one of them nine times with his revolver. This was after already discharging it in the catacombs several times, but prior to any reloading. Most revolvers contain only five or six cartridges. See more »
Macedonia has someone who talks like a rural American
One of the movies in which Paul Naschy doesn't play werewolf Waldemar Daninsky casts him in a supporting role, as a guy with a weird fetish. The movie focuses on a man who arrives at an estate where a professor is carrying out bizarre experiments. Among the other things that I noticed in "La orgia de los muertos" ("The Hanging Woman" in English):
*Although I couldn't tell that any of the character identified where the movie is set, I noticed a sign that said Skopje, which is the capital of Macedonia. Immediately after that, there was a man who had a rural American accent (although it was obviously dubbed). Whodathunk that Macedonia - if that's the setting - had that?!
*The main character is named Chekhov, and at one point, it sounded as though someone tried to say his name and made it sound like a sexual act.
Anyway, it's an OK movie. Not great, but entertaining.
Paul Naschy died last year. I wonder what the result would have been had he collaborated with Pedro Almodovar.
