I watched one of the most awesome films ever - Night of the Werewolf or "El Retorno del Hombre Lobo" circa mid-70's.



Look at that cover!

I knew that I was holding something special in my paws.

Take the Countess Erzebet Bathory and make her a vampire, give her a werewolf boy-toy, resurrect them in modern times, and put a legendary Spanish horror icon (paul naschy) at the helm of the whole thing, and youve got one hell of a good old-fashioned horror film. The title sounds very trite, the concept stupid, but after all the initial guffaws have faded (and granted that may take a few minutes ='.' youll find a pretty dang good monster mash here. There's some unexpectedly nice and scary moments to be found here. Remember the part in Salems lot where that one shrieking vamp gets a cross burned on her forehead? There's a similar event in this film, and it's one of like three that are actually kinda creepy. It's as good any homage to the old classic horror films of Hammer and the like can be, good stuff.
