Frankenstein Created Bikers Is Happening!

The digital revolution had all but rendered shooting on a film as nothing more than a pipe dream, and cinephiles were beginning to say goodbye to the medium that shaped their favorite art form from the very beginning. The aesthetic of film is something that cannot be captured, only replicated, no matter how skilled an editor may be. 35mm is almost impossible to get a hold of these days (unless you’re part of a huge movie studio) so the independent artist’s chances at shooting on film is slim to none. However, director James Bickert (who brought us the absolutely dynamite Dear God, No) has other ideas.

Frankenstein Created Bikers is going to be one of the last (if not the absolute last) independent horror film shot on 35mm. Frankenstein Created Bikers centers around the re-animation of the South’s most notorious biker gang, The Impalers. Dr. Marco and

Paul Naschy 1934 – 2009
Spanish horror legend dies.

Jacinto Molina Álvarez, better known worldwide as Paul Naschy, died at his Madrid home Tuesday morning following a year long battle with cancer. The actor, writer, producer and director publicly played down the extent of his ill health, attributing his appearance in a wheelchair at last October’s Sitges Festival to mere fatigue after a long journey and few people were aware of the gravity of his illness. I last talked to Paul three weeks ago and he spoke as enthusiastically as ever about the numerous projects he had on the go: sound editing on the vampire movie Empusa which he directed, the completion of the script for a wartime horror thriller titled Groton El Grande and his pet project, Mi Perro Aquiles, for which he had secured the services of Christopher Lee in the role of Don Quijote.

Naschy rose to fame on the international

Spanish Horror Film Legend Paul Naschy Dies

Spanish actor Paul Naschy was a leading star in horror films for forty years from the late 1960s. He was best known for his role as the tragic werewolf, Waldemar Daninsky, which he originated in the 1968 film La Marca del Hombre Lobo (Mark of the Wolfman) from his own script. Though the film pitted Daninsky against a pair of vampires, the movie was oddly retitled Frankenstein’s Bloody Terror when it was released in the United States. He went on to play the werewolf in nearly a dozen subsequent films, many that he also co-scripted under his real name, Jacinto Molina.

Naschy was born Jacinto Alvarez Molina in Madrid on September 6, 1934. He began working in films as an extra in the 1961 biblical feature King of Kings. He appeared in small roles in a handful of films in the 1960s before creating the role of the werewolf Daninsky.

R.I.P. Paul Naschy 1934-2009

R.I.P. Paul Naschy 1934-2009
Paul Naschy, often referred to as 'the Spanish Lon Chaney' has lost his battle with cancer at the age of 75. Naschy's career began in the 60's when he created the werewolf character Waldemar Daninsky, a character that he played in over 12 films. While Naschy is primarily known for his films from the 60's through the 80's (titles like Dr. Jekyll vs. the Werewolf, Horror Rises From the Tomb and Panic Beats), Naschy never stopped working (writing, directing, producing, acting) right up until his death. In 2004, Naschy wrote and starred in a semi-autobiographical film called Rojo Sangre about an 'older', down on his luck actor. I had the good fortune of meeting Mr. Naschy several years ago,...
