Armando De Razza,
Second part of the Valdemar saga. Ana and Eduardo are sent to assist in the investigation of the disappearance of Luisa. In the middle of the road they find Luisa escaping. At the end the three are kidnapped. A gruesome fate awaits.
I have to admit, I had no idea what the movie (documentary) was about when I went to see it. It was part of the Frightfest line-up in 2011 and the title did sound very intriguing. Plus a friend told me, if he'd only watch one movie from the whole Festival, it would be this one. I guess you can say he is a Naschy fan.
While I have seen him (and the recent Valdemar Legacy does not do him justice), I'm not a scholar of his work, nor could I tell you many things about his movies. But this documentary is able to fill in some blanks, even for those who haven't heard of the guy. A bit of reading prior to watching this might come a long way, but this is still a very compassionate portray of a man, who lived his dream.
