(LA NOCHE DE WALPURGIS)
With Paul Naschy.
Waldemar Daninsky, the wild werewolf created by the unforgettable Paul Naschy, is the most famous icon of Spanish horror cinema. Naschy played him 14 times, but this is the most popular take: the movie broke box office records in Spain and gave the genre worldwide exposure. Naschy used this violent and untamed character to project on screen the religious and sexual frustrations of millions of Spaniards during the Franco dictatorship. Its masterful use of slow motion and its spooky atmosphere make this film an unforgettable classic.
