Argentinian-born filmmaker León Klimovsky made eight films with Paul Naschy for which he is probably best known. "The Werewolf's Shadow" (1971),pretty good giallo with Erika Blanc "A Dragonfly for Each Corpse" (1974) and the surreal "The People Who Own the Dark"(1979) are just a few of the highlights of these two's collaboration.In "Ultimo Deseo" a group of nuclear explosion survivors are trying to survive attacks of the zombified blind villagers.The survivors board up in the villa and prepare for an attack at night.It all leads to surprisingly downbeat and tragic ending in the vein of Romero's "Night of the Living Dead".The cast shall be pretty familiar to fans of Spanish cult cinema as it includes Paul Naschy,Nadiuska,Alberto DeMendoza,Teresa Gimpera,Tony Kendall and Maria Perschy.8 out of 10.Very enjoyable and pretty dark horror movie!
