Naschy (AKA Jacinto Molina) returns as El Hombre Lobo for the umpteenth time and once again battles a female vampire (see “Werewolf vs. the Vampire Woman”). Although continental Europe's biggest horror star, this film was such a boxoffice disaster that Naschy went bankrupt. He was then forced to turn to Japan for financing (see “The Human Beasts”). Naschy/Molina directed under the pseudonym “Jack” Molina. 93m/C VHS . SP Paul Naschy, Julie Saly, Silvia Aquilar, Azucena Hernandez, Beatriz Elorietta, Pilar Alcon; D: Paul Naschy.
