    Count Dracula's Great Love (Elvira version)
    Curse of the Devil
    Panic Beats
    Horror Rises From the Tomb
    Mark of the Wolf Man

    Really like the movies that start with a Medieval flashback showing an ancestor of Daninsky or Alaric de Marnac getting executed.

    Vengeance of the Zombies (1972)
    Hunchback of the Morgue (1973)

    I've never seen this one. Sell me on it.

    Hunchback Of The Morgue and Horror Rises From The Tomb are tops, Werewolf Shadow and Mark Of The Wolfman too. And Panic Beats was rad.

    I love Dr. Jekyll Vs. The Werewolf the most though, at least occasionally I do, I'm not good at ranking things. I think it's because it was the first of his movies that I saw.

    Here were my impressions afterr seeing The Beast and the Magic Sword (1983) for the first time:




    Waldemar Daninsky flees to Japan in search of the man that can cure his silver allergy. This is the 4th Paul Naschy film I've seen and I have no doubt I will consider it my favorite when I've exhausted his filmography. Seeing Naschy's Wolfman tear through dozens in a Japanese brothel and slaughter squads of samurai in the forest is a real treat. There are some nice sleazy moments like the topless ninja that takes a shuriken to the boob, as well. The "must see" scene is a showdown between the Wolfman and a Bengal Tiger. It's jaw-dropping how aggressively those two go at it. That stuntman was f&@%ing nuts. At times the plot does slow down but I enjoyed seeing Mac Daddy Daninsky weave his spell on yet another damsel.

    I've yet to see a Naschy flick I really disliked...he has a pretty amazing track record, for me at least. Here's my particular favorites though, go-to goodness in a pinch:

    BLUE EYES OF THE BROKEN DOLL
    VENGEANCE OF THE MUMMY
    HORROR RISES FROM THE TOMB
    HUMAN BEASTS
    7 MURDERS FOR SCOTLAND YARD
    WEREWOLF'S SHADOW
    PEOPLE WHO OWN THE DARK
    NIGHT OF THE HOWLING BEAST

    Special mention for the lone spaghetti western Naschy appeared in, it's just a cameo, but fittingly, it's easily the most fantastic/supernatural of the entire genre; Death itself shows up at the end! FURY OF JOHNNY KID
