Audio 2: Commentary with The Naschycast (Troy Guinn & Rod Barnett)

The spirit of a deceased knight returns every 100 years to clean a house by graphiquely murdering the women who are making the life of his descendants unbearable.

This entertaining effort from 1983 has everything you would expect from a Spanish horror movie: a) Paul Naschy, b) a low budget, c) a curse from the past and d) gratuitous gore to satisfy splatter freaks. Even though the production values are rather low key, the film is always entertaining and keeps you interested from beginning to end. There are enough twists to develop a decent plot filled with surprises. And, as mentioned before, there are also a handful of gory moments that are well crafted and really nasty (but don’t expect a movie focused on blood and guts). The most remarkable aspect of the plot is its mix of crime thriller and ghost story elements, which fit together surprisingly well. And this is one of those movies, where Paul Naschy’s character is NOT the ill-fated Valdemar Daninsky! Recommended for all friends of European horror.
