Alternate Versions

There are a few different cuts / versions of this film available. 1. A severely cut 72 min version that first appeared on a Family Value dollar disc and now on the PURE TERROR multi disc set. 2. Spanish R2 DVD release of the covered Spanish version with English subtitles. This one looks terrific but lacks the 4 nude scenes found in the English dubbed export version. 3. Only source for the uncut English dub is Sinister Cinema, taken from a faded full screen print. Not too pretty but it is currently as good as it gets. See more »

Mental as usual

I think this is the fifth Paul Naschy werewolf film, but who knows. This one starts out with an English fellow heading out for Transylvania to visit his parent's graves, with his cute wife in tow, only for the both of them to discover a horribly burned man lurking about the place. This film details the seventies approach to disability when the wife starts screaming bloody murder and the English guy throws a brick at the guy.

At a local bar, the barman describes the entire area as being full of thieves and cutthroats and says maybe it's a bad idea to go to the old creepy cemetery that's next to the old creepy castle that the local monster lives in, but off they go anyway, which results in three local brothers robbing their car, killing the English guy, and trying to rape the Justine, his wife. I say try because Paul Naschy turns up and brutally murders two of the brothers (one by dropping a huge rock on the guy's face!).

Paul of course is a werewolf with a witch sidekick and when this robber guy starts going on about revenge and involving the locals it doesn't turn out right for anyone, as more villagers end up dead, the rest get out the pitchforks and torches, and Paul has to high tail it to England so the plot can get even more stupid. I also noted that for some reason one villager had a gigantic pitchfork that was much larger than the others. Must have been compensating for something.

Now Justine has quickly got over her husband being murdered and is in love with Paul, so she goes to Dr Jekyll to get him cured. In a plot move that makes virtually no sense whatsoever, Jekyll proposes that they inject Paul with some injection that will make Mister Hyde manifest in Paul (?) so that they can then isolate the evil in him and kill him. So not only has Paul got to put up with the werewolf stuff, now he's turned into a sex-crazed hedonist too!

This might have actually worked out if Dr Jekyll didn't have a jealous female sidekick who wasn't happy with Jekyll trying to help out an unrequited love. Next thing you know Hyde is out rampaging around London, but then again you only get to see that if you have the uncut version as it involves ravaging hookers and whipping Justine.

Best thing about this film (apart from the crazy storyline) was that any time you started to think it would get boring - it didn't! I thought things would slow down a lot once Paul got to London for his cure, but then, in the lift on the way up to his appointment, the lift broke down and trapped him with a nurse until the moon rose, causing a werewolf rampage! I love these films!

It doesn't skimp on the gore and the only thing missing from the Mill Creek version is the nudity*, which you're not going to miss anyway if you watching an endless list of these films. Naschy's Mr Hyde was funny too, including the way he just exits the film without any fuss.

*I'm talking crap - it's also missing the opening credits.
