"Inquisition" is a film unique and splendid, in the debut of Naschy as director
12 June 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

In France of the sixteenth century, the Grand Inquisitor Bernard of Fossey in its blind fight against the alleged heretics, apostates and worshippers of Satan, does not hesitate to pursue their goals and use the most cruel and unimaginable torture to meet their most perverse instincts and get the favor of the powerful. The emergence of the beautiful Catherine (Daniela Giordano), accused of witchcraft, disrupt involuntarily plans by the Inquisitor. Fossey, overwhelmed by his passion loving toward the girl, begin to act in a manner that will involve the dangerous antipathies of his former allies.

Naschy gives his knowledges about Inquistion and witchery as he explains about the ¨Fornicarius¨and the ¨Garden of flowers ¨ by Torquemada that the devil and Sabbath are the same. And accusing Inquisition publishes what may be the most blood-soaked book in human history: ¨The Malleus Malleficarum¨, the witches' hammer,it is instructed the clergy on how to locate,torture and kill all freethinking women,during witch-hunt , history tells, fifty thousand are captured ,burned alive at the stake. Also Paul Naschy/Bernard De Fossey tells : 72 infernal princes command over 7.000 demons as ¨Satanas¨ the Grand General and Emperor, ¨Belcebu¨, prince of demons , ¨Asmodeo¨, superintendent of inferno, ¨Astaroth¨ Grand duke of occident, infernal treasurer, and ¨Beltegor¨ who rules over 70 legions of devils.

"Inquisition" is the debut in the direction of Paul Naschy. According to account in his memoirs, had to venture into the world of the film direction because it seems no longer found another way to get their projects, and also intrude in the skin of the grand inquisitor "Bernard of Fossey, this shows great character.

Among the successes of Naschy in "Inquisition", is its elegant staging, with an elaborate use of decorated, with those obstacles within the frame or the openings of plane from an object to a general view, that relate to taste the various elements of the image, until the sound design naturalist and fresh of the decorated. Naschy draws the best of his face with that beard that so severely he gave to his image.

His other great wisdom was surrounded by a remarkable cast: Daniela Giordano, Monica Randall, Juan Luis Gallardo, Antonio Iranzo, Eduardo Calvo...

A good title, a topic of great historic significance, either filmed better than other films of greater prestige.

Film almost unknown that however is to be one of the best in the Spanish fantasy genre, with an update on the scene sober but fascinating.
