The Worst of the Naschy's
27 February 2008 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Lycantropus (1996)

BOMB (out of 4)

Paul Naschy's 12th venture as werewolf Waldemar Daninsky is an embarrassing horror film, which is certainly the most worthless of all his werewolf films. In this film, taking place in 1996, Naschy is a successful writer who is still suffering from the werewolf curse. Various murders are happening across town so will this curse ever die? This film is pretty legendary amongst Naschy buffs because the star wrote the screenplay but most of it was torn to shreds by the director who cut out all the violence, gore and nudity. With all that stuff missing, there's not a single thing here worth watching. All the detective talk is very boring and even Naschy appears to be sleepwalking through the film. The performances are all pretty bad and the English dubbing doesn't help them any. This film was never released in America and it's not hard to see why. Total pointless on all levels.
