Speaking of Paul Naschy is talking about fantasy film "Fantaterror". However, within the extensive filmography of our werewolf there are a number of titles beyond his movie genre. Most of these jobs are crowded between the turn of the seventies and the early eighties, at the very moment that Naschy begins to run his own projects.
At that time democratic change in Spain, which entails the repeal of censorship of film production, occurs. That is why immediately, producers lose interest in new films "Fantaterror" in favour of erotic cinema, much more lucrative for the demands of an audience eager sex after forty years of restriction. An example of this is in directors whose career had been spent in the horror film as Carlos Aured will eventually be recycled into new erotic genre. For all this though without abandoning all fantastic cinema, Naschy will open new horizons for cinema through proposals closer to the tastes of viewers.
"Madrid Al Desnudo"(1978) is the film that inaugurated this more commercial stage Naschy. It's a comedy so at the time, in which outrageous social satire notes converge with generous displays of nudity. Thus, the great cast includes, besides Naschy, secondary as Rafael Hernandez, Paloma Hurtado or Blaki, uncovering several muses as Silvia Aguilar and Yolanda Rios, including performers of great standing as Fernando Fernán Gomez, Agustin Gonzalez, Fernando Pastor Serrador or Fernando Hilbeck .
The film is an ironic gaze and acid Wildlife Madrid's high society at the end of the 70s, which Naschy as recounted in his memoirs, it took several threats, in addition to the attempt by a powerful character to end his career. But ultimately, the outcome of the film is very weak after leading the unsurpassed "El Huerto Del Francés" (1978).
Despite poor results, Naschy still try his luck again years later in the same genus with the crazy "Operation Mantis (El Exterminio Del Macho)" (1984), whose commercial failure would mean the end of Film Production of Naschy, "Aconito Films" and with it the regularity with which until that time had been going on his filmography.
