Scream Factory's Paul Naschy Collection Blu ray Sets are must-haves for Naschy fans.



1st Collection Films:

Horror Rises From The Tomb (w/NaschyCast Commentary and other special features)

Vengeance Of The Zombies (w/special features)

Blue Eyes Of The Broken Doll (w/NaschyCast Commentary and other special features)

Human Beasts (w/special features)

Night Of The Werewolf (w/NaschyCast Commentary and other special features)

2nd Collection Films:

Hunchback Of The Morgue (w/NaschyCast Commentary and other special features)

A Dragonfly For Each Corpse (w/Troy Howarth Commentary and still gallery)

The Devil's Possessed (w/theatrical trailers)

Exorcism (w/Troy Howarth Commentary and other special features)

The Werewolf And The Yeti (w/still gallery)

These are the best versions of the films to date and far surpass most previously released versions. Each set also includes a nice slipcase and a 24 page booklet by Mirek Lipinski. At less than $60 each these sets are a great value. Both are highly recommended by this Naschy fan.

Two more must-have Naschy Blu-rays from Mondo Macabro:



Inquisition (w/NaschyCast Commentary, Blood And Sand: Spanish Horror Documentary, and other special features)

The Devil Incarnate (aka El Caminante) (w/Troy Howarth Commentary and other special features)

These films have never looked better, and both are some of Naschy's best work. Mondo Macabro delivers!

Finally landed one of these BCI/Deimos Blu rays.



I hold the Spanish Horror DVDs from BCI in high regard. They presented films from Paul Naschy and Amando de Ossorio in the best versions at the time a decade ago. One that escaped me until now is the only Blu ray that BCI did in the series- the double feature of Night Of The Werewolf and Vengeance Of The Zombies. It's been hard to get for years, and the ones I saw for sale were in the $100 range, so I would bide my time. Now that the release has been superseded by The Paul Naschy Collection set from Scream Factory the prices on the BCI BD have dropped considerably. I bought this one for $12 from an eBay seller on a "Make Offer". I like to collect older versions of DVD/BDs if it's something I enjoy, even if superseded by a newer release. It just depends on getting it for a good price. I still collect Alpha and other bargain DVD releases from back in the day.  :)

Human Beasts: The Films Of Paul Naschy by Troy Howarth



I received my copy of this great work today. This should be on the bookshelf of every Naschy fan. It's 344 pages of well written comprehensive info covering every aspect of Naschy's films and career. It's the best Naschy book to date. Each film is listed in chronological order and covered in depth, with many excellent photos (several I've never seen). There are also sections covering a Videography: The Best Editions, and Key Collaborators (people who worked with Naschy over the years as actors, directors, etc.).

The standard edition of the book is $30 and has black and white photos. A deluxe edition with color photos is available for $50. These can be ordered from Amazon. If you're a Paul Naschy fan grab it and enjoy.

Paul Naschy is my cinematic hero, life role model (for acting, writing, and directing)! His work takes the Universal monsters and turns it to 11 while throwing in the kitchen sink (or two). I am lucky to have a some rare trailers in my film archive that I supplied to Code Red/Scorpion for their upcoming blu rays of Assignment Terror, The Mummy's Revenge, and Fury of the Wolfman...release dates TBD. The HD format is allowing for many of his films to be seen by a new audience which is great! Here some prizes in my Naschy collection:

The most special piece is his verified final autograph before passing  :'(information passed to me by his son Sergio). My wife had purchased the piece and was asked if she wanted it personalized to me and she said yes. Just days later, he left our plane. She kept it secret until Christmas day over a month later. We both wept as she had become a Naschy fan after marrying me.


16mm feature of "Frankenstein's Bloody Terror"


SUPER RARE 16mm trailer


A few originals in my editing bay:


And the chances of getting both 666's from the two limited Mondo Macabro releases? Waiting and refreshing for preorder.

Bought this Naschy Werewolf piece from Gary Wray. Guess which one is Waldemar.  :laugh:



He's influenced by Tiki and Basil Wolverton art.

I picked up the Blu-ray for The Beast And The Magic Sword from Mondo Macabro when it first came out (preordered from Diabolik).



This is a must-have for Naschy fans. It's beats the werewolf crap out of those bootlegs we've been watching forever, and it has some good special features. Very highly recommended!

The 1.66 ratio is a nice addition and gives a more cinematic feel than the 4.3 version we are all used to.

Here's a pic of my original Belgian poster for La Noche de Walpurgis (1971) (aka Werewolf Shadow, aka Werewolf Vs. The Vampire Woman).



I've been collecting a few original Naschy posters of late (along with other genre posters) and just as I was about to hit Target and Hobby Lobby to buy poster frames to display them this pandemic hit. I doubt if poster frames would arrive in one piece through the mail so I'll wait until this mess blows over to buy my frames and display my posters (and post pics).

I have found that with the European posters, especially with my Spanish Naschy posters, I have to get them custom framed due to the sizing. Each one is slightly different in dimensions which is a pain.
