The big bad dragon will leave you be..., 13 February 2010
Author: lastliberal from United States

Hasn't Naschy already done the ancestor/descendant thing? No matter, for watching Naschy direct and write and act (he does it all here) is always a pleasure - a guilty one, of course, as his films will win no awards.

The film opens with a man on horseback in full armor swinging a mace as a naked girl runs for her life. Let's see Scorsese do a better job of directing that scene!

Initially, the film does not appear to be more than lots of screaming at ghosts and gore, semi-transparent nightgowns, and a man determined to rid himself of a sick wife. But, hey, that's enough for an enjoyable film. However, more murders occur, the gore gets ratcheted up, and there are some interesting twists.

Besides Naschy, Paquita Ondiviela by herself makes the film worth watching. Too bad it is the only film available in which to see her. Silvia Miró is no slouch either. Both provide considerable full frontal.
