Synopsis by Cavett Binion
Mexi-horror maestro Paul Naschy (aka Jacinto Molina) once again assays his trademark role of werewolf Waldemar Daninsky, who in the film's 16th-century prologue is executed for witchcraft alongside his vampiric partner-in-crime Countess Bathory (Silvia Aguilar). Flash forward to modern times, when grave-robbers violate Daninsky's crypt and awaken him to prowl anew. Though a decent sort of chap in human form, Waldemar is a real throat-chomper by moonlight, as exemplified by numerous gory attacks. The blood quotient is upped considerably when one of his accomplices discovers Bathory's crypt and revives her with virgin blood; together they make short work of an entire college campus and the surrounding township. Naschy ushers his time-honored Gothic monster themes into the splattery 1980's, resulting in a bizarre mix of old-school cliches and abundant gore -- definitely not boring, though Naschy fans were not entirely delighted.
