I would imagine that many, as I, watched this film because of Paul Naschy. He has a supporting part as a gravedigger. For Naschy completists, it is essential. For others, it probably would deserve a pass as it it unremarkable.
It opens with a Gothic sound and tone, and the washed out color contributes to the feel. Just what is happening is not very clear.
There is plenty of nudity, but there is also some gory nudity, especially where Igor (Naschy) is concerned.
The ending features zombies, and a walking Naschy with a knife in his chest, and a mad doctor.
Naschy was great, as was Stelvio Rosi and Dyanik Zurakowska.
