Product Description

Panic Beats delivers the goods so far as horror fans are concerned. The film is extremely gory (be warned) and has some very effective shock scenes as you would expect in a film that is about someone being scared to death. All things that Euro horror fans demand are here, blood and gore, weird nightmare sequences, sex and nudity, exotic settings and a bizarre historical background. The film is also extremely well shot with some beautiful cinematography - now fully evident in this remastered version and some great special make up effects. Finally, the film is unusual in that it mixes a very classic thriller plot with it's full blooded horror elements, making the horror even more shocking.

Format: DVD
Well-to-do married couple Paul Marnac (Naschy) and Genevieve (Saly) aren't quite

as happy as they appear; Paul's business is in trouble and he's having a fling on

the side with Julie (Ondiviela), a sexy young schemer who's more than happy to

help Paul bump off his frail wife. Fortunately Paul happens to be a descendant

of Alaric de Marnac (the medieval fiend played by Naschy in the earlier Horror

Rises from the Tomb), and legend has it that Alaric returns in knight gear once

every century to clean house of anyone making life miserable for the family.

Other players in the household include Paul's secretary and occasional mistress

Mirielle (MirO) and the creepy housekeeper Mabile (Gaos), who has a habit of

popping up in Julie's nightmares with a bleeding slit throat. Soon death

strikes in this cursed household as the knighted terror returns, but all is

not as it seems...

Having thoroughly explored the possibilities of transposing the classic Universal

monsters to Spain with his series of Waldemar Daninsky werewolf films and one-offs

like Count Dracula's Great Love, here horror icon Naschy takes a stab at William

Castle territory with this fast-paced, nasty, and thoroughly enjoyable fusion of

The Tingler and House on Haunted Hill. With its scheming lovers, trippy dream

sequences, and even a woman terrorized by a ghoul rising from a bathtub and

other horrors lying in wait outside, this ode to the master of screen gimmickry

features enough knots in its plot to keep viewers guessing.

Format: DVD
I expected this film to be an exciting, atmospheric bloodbath, but that didn't happen. Panic Beats is full of cheap thrills along the lines of many snake in the bed bits with drawn out scenes, boring dialogue (not even funny dialogue), and an unfolding double cross between Naschy and his wife, mistress, and new love interest, and two good gore scenes (the only gore scenes) towards the end.

I was disappointed in this one...there's nothing better from Mondo Macabro than "Lady Terminator."

Skip this one.
