Customer Reviews

I have to say, that this film is truly a very decent film and part of the Naschy's classics in the werewolf sagas that he has played.
Larry M. Smith
Paul Naschy once again dons the familiar personage of the long suffering Count Valdemar Daninsky cursed to turn into a murderous werewolf when the full moon rises !
Todd L. Burley
"The Night of the Werewolf" is truly one of the most frightening movies with impending mystery and terror that dwells within its gothic atmosphere.

NIGHT OF THE WEREWOLF (El Retorno del Hombre Lobo) is a part of director Paul Naschy's series about the lycanthropic shape-changing Lord Waldemar Daninsky. The 70's "Werewolf Shadow", this Euro-horror franchise came 10 years before "An American Werewolf in London". Now unlike, some other werewolf films that also came out in the early-mid 80's, Naschy's approach is more about traditional, old-fashioned gothic horror with the added elements of a romantic tragedy.

In the 16th century, Countess Bathory (Julia Saly) is sentenced to a slow death by being imprisoned in a stone tablet due to her machinations with the devil. Her lycanthropic aide, Waldemar is more than willing to die and end his enslavement to the wicked Countess. After many centuries, Waldemar's corpse was found by a pair of grave robbers and they took the silver cross that kept his body in place; thereby awakening the werewolf.
Days after, three beauteous aspiring archaeologists led by Erika (Silvia Aguilar) crosses paths with a revived Waldemar and they accept his hospitality in his castle. Karen (beauteous Azucena Hernandez) instantly falls in love with Waldemar; apparently she is the chosen one who will end the Count's curse. Erika herself is a student of the dark arts and she intends to revive the vampiress; Countess Bathory, with the blood of her friend Barbara (Pilar Alcon). Bathory awakens after many centuries and is determined to once again put Waldemar under their enthrallment in order to fulfill the prophecies of darkness on Earth.

"Night of the Werewolf" is undoubtedly very much linked with other films of the series. I have not seen "Werewolf Shadow", (or did I?) so I can only assume that this entry would be a "souped-up" version of the ones that came before.

If you are a fan of Paul Naschy you must have this film in your collection!! Anyone who is into Gothic horror has probably seen this in an old vhs copy called the Craving. It was very dark and grainy, however this copy is a Pristine print. The Werewolf Naschy is also surrounded by a group of very "Hot" women. Check out the beatiful Azucena Hernandez as Naschy's love interest. A great Gothic horror film, Paul Naschy and beatiful women so whats not to like??

I am a big fan of Paul Naschy and this movie was classic Naschy fun.

Gothic horror with a 1970s style twist.

Not too bloody.

A fun evenings entertainment.

Kudos to Deimos for getting the DVD to the market and at a fair price.

Lycanthrope of perpetual sorrow (and gore) Waldemar Daninsky -played as always, by criminally underrated Spanish horror legend Paul Naschy- came back from the dead yet again in 1980 for the 9th out of 12 films starring El Hombre Lobo, the baddest werewolf ever to grace the silver screen. It really is a shame that Naschy is not well known because his stuff slashes, gouges, and gnaws all over Lon Chaney Jr's work, which I love. This time around, Naschy (born Jacinto Molina) not only starred and wrote, but DIRECTED this - arguably his finest film -known in Spain as "El Retorno del Hombre Lobo". Did you not get enough hot brunette vampires battling our hero in Werewolf's Shadow? Well, here you go.

In "Night of the Werewolf" real historical vampire Elizabeth Bathory has gained some young sexy friends some centuries after her and her followers -Daninksy among them, though against his will- were executed for all kinds of goat-heavy badness (a cookie for anyone who pegs that reference). Once a pair of grave robbers remove the silver crucifix from the werewolf's corpse on the full moon (just an all around bad idea, really), the fun begins. The satanic beauties stay at Daninsky's gothic crib where the main (wolf)man naturally takes the pick of the litter for his own -he's pimp like that- and spends his nights killing hobos by the full moon while Bathory's Angels prepare the ritual for her resurrection. Hint: there's blood involved. Before you know it Daninsky is back in the vampire hunting business as the brunette bombshells one-by-one are turned by the Blood Countess and turn on him.

This film has been a long time in coming but the wait has been well worth it! Paul Naschy once again dons the familiar personage of the long suffering Count Valdemar Daninsky cursed to turn into a murderous werewolf when the full moon rises ! This is probably one of the best "classic" battles between werewolf and vampire !(in the guise of Countess Elizabeth Bathory). This film has been released in several incarnations with titles such as " The Werewolf VS The Vampire Woman, El Retorno Del Hombre Lobo, The Craving and The Night Of The Werewolf". It is the best in the Valdemar Daninsky saga and high point in Spanish Horror Cinema. The film has been given the "royal treatment" in the fabulous transfer that has been done. It,s really flawless and I,ve never seen this film in a better version. It is uncut and beautifully restored. I would hazard a guess that The Night Of The Werewolf didn,t look this good in it,s original theatrical release !! If you love gothic Horror with iconic characters this film delivers in spades !
