For those of you who were disappointed with the awful full screen transfer and print available on the Madacy cheapie DVD THE WEREWOLF vs THE VAMPIRE WOMAN, guess what? Anchor Bay has restored this film in widescreen with one of its alternate release titles as WEREWOLF SHADOW! I was elated to FINALLY have a prisitne and UNCUT copy of this film on DVD! Anchor Bay answered my prayers. It is presented for the first time uncut and in sparkling anamorphic widescreen. In fact, if you were unfortunate to own the chopped up and poorly presented verions on Madacy, this will be like watching an entirely new movie! Once again Anchor Bay has delivered the goods to horror fans. The DVD contains the complete film (with the originally cut portions restored with the original subtitles), trailers, TV spots, and a 15 minute interview with star Paul Naschy, who probably goes on record as one of the sexiest Werewolf stars commited to film. WEREWOLF SHADOW was second in a series of very successful werewolf genre pictures to come out of Spain in the late 60s and early 70s. Much of the film's success lies in the performance of Paul Naschy, who portrays the character of Waldemar Daninsky with a tragic irony perhaps unseen in previous werewolf pictures. Naschy is believable as the tortured Daninsky, who is the product of a family curse, centuries in place. The film very much resembles the looks and feel of a Hammer picture, without the budget. The reds are GLOWING red and the blacks are DEEP and eerie. This is also a terrific bargain on DVD. Highly recommended for fans of this genre.

Its good to see the Naschy movies being released here in the states (although at a slow pace). This one was long over due as the butchered version known as Werewolf Vs. The Vampire Woman is such a bad print its hardly worth watching. The DVD treatment of Werewolf Shadow is quite good in its uncut/unedited wide screen glory. While these movies are not for everyone there is a following for them. If you are a Naschy fan you will enjoy this one even though Curse Of The Devil is a bit better in my estimation. A werewolf,vampires and nude cuties. Whats not to love?

In the interview that comes on the DVD, Paul Naschy says that Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman was the movie that made him a horror buff. You can see that inspiration in Werewolf Shadow - right down to recreating the opening sequence. In fact, despite the gore and nudity that punctuates the plot, this film is a lot like those old Universal Horror movies of the forties. Despite some boring stretches (particularly in the restored sequences) and some trite dialogue, the film moves along at a brisk pace and contains some impressive (if not scarey) images - such as the Countess, all dressed in flowing black, fleeing back to her tomb, her mummified undead assistant attacking the heroine in the ruined castle, and a recently vamped girl appearing in a corridor all aswirl with mist. The final fight between the werewolf and the vampire Countess is a bit of a let down, but up til then things haven't been too bad at all.

Paul Naschy has put his heart and soul and imagination into horror movies for decades. Werewolf Shadow is a fine example of what the man is all about. Fun? You bet. Creepy and weird? You got it. Cheesy? Sure is. Passionate? Yep it's that too. Naschy gives another passionate performance here and the tragic and romantic elements of his character make this something special. The quality of the print is damn nice too. The special features help to make this even more of a winner for fans of B-movie horror.

This is a very good print of what is normally named "The Werewolf vs. the Vampire Women". It is clear, bright, colorful, and appears uncut in all its bloody glory. One of my favorite Paul Naschy movies.

While performing an autopsy a man removes silver bullets from Paul Naschy and viola! We have a movie! Two coeds traveling in Europe looking for a dead female vampire who drank the blood of virgins stumble upon the manor of the only werewolf in Europe. who happens to live nearby. The vampire died by a silver cross to the heart, something our man Paul can carry around with him, without any side effects.

Entertaining from a campy point of view.

This feature has been poorly transferred to DVD and on some copies, the few nude scenes have been cut. Night time shots appear to be done with natural lighting, and that is bad.

This movie is so far gone, it's not from this planet. A werewolf gets revived at the beginning, he drools like a St. Bernard with rabies, rips pieces of raw meat from his victims, add to that plenty of nudity, blood, a vampire woman, violence, and a cheap production, and dubbed in English-this is one wild movie, and lots of fun.

Waldemar Deninsky (horror god Paul Naschy- HORROR RISES FROM THE TOMB, VENGEANCE OF THE ZOMBIES, THE PEOPLE WHO OWN THE DARK) rises from the dead, transforms into a werewolf, and kills the idiot performing his autopsy. Thus begins WEREWOLF SHADOW (aka: THE WEREWOLF VS. THE VAMPIRE WOMAN), followed by the legend of notorious vampire, the Countess Wandessa (Patty Shepard- HANNAH QUEEN OF THE VAMPIRES). Soon, two young college girls show up, in search of the countess' tomb. They run into Waldemar, who is more than happy to assist them in their quest. After settling in at his manor, strange things begin to occur. Waldemar's insane sister tries to kill the girls, and they discover a blood-drenched torture chamber! Astonishingly, they stay anyway, as their mission is too important. The tomb is located, the Countess is resurrected, and the fun begins! WEREWOLF SHADOW is certainly one of Naschy's better Daninsky films. It's filled w/ foreboding, dread, and doom, especially once the Countess arrives! In typical fashion, it's also packed w/ nubile ladies who can't seem to keep their clothes on for very long at all. Extra points for the groovy werewolf / vampire showdown!...
