Entertaining entry in the long series about Waldemar Daninsky , the immortal Wolfman decently performed by Paul Naschy or Jacinto Molina
16 September 2015 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

"Dr. Jekyll and the Wolfman" deals with Waldermar Daninsky (Paul Naschy) who helped by Justine (Shirley Corrigan) searches for a cure to his full moon craziness by visiting the descendant (Jack Taylor as Henry Jekill supported by his helper Sandra played by Mirta Miller) of the infamous Dr. Jekyll from Robert Louis Stevenson novel . What ensues next is a lover's triangle , and a nasty Mr. Hyde who roams modern London and walks through at night in Soho streets and becomes into a werewolf on the disco floor .

Acceptable Werewolf movie with the unforgettable Waldemar Daninsky-Jacinto Molina , under pseudonym Paul Naschy . Continental Europe's biggest horror star again with his classic character and frightening to viewer . He returns as El Hombre Lobo for the umpteenth time and once again battles enemies . It is a B series entertainment with abundant sensationalistic scenes and a Naif style . The movie has a bit of ridiculous gore with loads of blood similar to tomato and is occasionally an engaging horror movie full of slow-moving fights , attacks , beheading and several other things . Naschy's portrayal of the anguished and sympathetic werewolf Daninsky -here along with a magnificent acting as savage sadistic Mr Hyde- became his signature part and consolidated his enduring cult status as a bona-fide horror icon and he spent more time in make-up . Jacinto Molina Aka Paul Naschy , who recently passed away , was actor , screenwriter and director of various films about the personage based on fictitious character , the Polish count Waldemar Daninsky . Jacinto often cited seeing Frankenstein and the Wolfman (1943) in a theater at age 11 as a seminal inspirational experience , his later movies would be filled with references to it . In 1967 he wrote the script for first film about Waldemar , it was ¨The mark of the Wolfman¨ by Enrique Eguiluz ; he was forced , out of necessity , to play the lead role of tormented werewolf Waldermar Daninsky after Lon Chaney Jr. turned it down . Later on , he reprised this character in over a dozen subsequent followings . As Molina went on the successful ¨Night of Walpurgis¨ by Leon Klimovsky , ¨Fury of the Wolfman¨ , ¨Doctor Jekill and the Wolfman¨ ,¨The return of the Walpurgis¨, ¨Howl of the devil¨, ¨The beast and the magic sword (1982)¨ that was filmed in Japan and finally ¨Licántropo (1998).

A talented athlete , Naschy played soccer for the school team and was a weightlifter who became the lightweight champion of Spain in 1958. Moreover , Paul penned Western pulp novels under the pseudonym Jack Mills and worked as an illustrator who did album cover art for a Spanish record label . Thanks to his muscular build , Naschy was able to break into the motion picture business in the early 1960s as an uncredited extra in such films as ¨El Cid¨, ¨55 days at Pekin¨ and the biblical epic ¨King of Kings¨ (1961) along with a Spaghetti , ¨Day of Anger¨ . Other significant horror figures Paul played were the Mummy , Jack the Ripper , Dracula ; as his performance as the Prince of Darkness in ¨Count Dracula's great love¨ (1973) was one of his personal favorites , the Hunchback , the Frankenstein Monster, the Phantom of the Opera , and even the Devil . Naschy made his directorial debut with Inquisition (1978) . Furthermore , Naschy made some Giallos such as "A Dragonfly for Each Corpse" , "The Killer Is One of Thirteen" and ¨Blue Eyes of the Broken Doll¨. The films , ¨El Caminante¨ and ¨El Aullido del Diablo¨ or "Howl of the Devil"(1987) were two of Paul's most personal projects and finest artistic achievements.

In ¨Doctor Jekill and the Wolfman¨ , Paul Naschy returns as Waldemar for the sixth time , Paul was such a perfectionist that he didn't have a stand-in, even for the lighting , as he did everything himself . Paul was a very serious man , though an introvert , always practicing his lines , his faces , and make-up . In the film appears a numerous secondary cast who starred innumerable films of Spaghetti/Paella Western and horror genres during the 60s and 70 such as Jack Taylor , Mirta Miller , Luis Induni , José Marco , Luis Gaspar and Barta Barri .

Creepy and eerie musical score by Anton Garcia Abril who composed the ¨Templar Zombies¨ saga by Amando De Ossorio . Adequate cinematography by Francisco Fraile shot on location in Soho , Big Ben , Houses of Parliament , Westminster , Piccadilly Circus , Trafalgar Square , London , England , UK and Madrid , Spain . The motion picture was professionally directed by Leon Klimovski . Mr. Klimovsky was a great director and in this movie he'd be shouting on his megaphone all the time . Leon was very close to the actor Jacinto Molina , they had a very strong friendship , and would always be talking business together . The flick will appeal to Paul Naschy fans and terror genre enthusiast . Rating : 6 , passable and amusing .
