The centurion has a change of heart when he is put in charge of the region, freely dispensing justice and forgiveness to the conquered inhabitants.

“When a mysterious drifter reluctantly takes a job with a roadside haunted house, he quickly discovers that the attractions locked up in the basement are far more dangerous than plastic skeletons in rubber chains. Together with a mixed-up young woman in search for her lost nephew, and a host of liquored-up, live-remote radio deejays, Jerrod will have to solve the mystery of an ancient Egyptian amulet and face the wrath of the Angel of Death before he can be free of his curse: Necrophobia. Necrophobia is a small gem of a Dutch psychological horror movie about a man whose wife passed away after an accident, and his confrontation with a beautiful but macabre woman after her burial.”

Generation/Source: DVD Custom
Language: English, Spanish, German
Subtitles: English


A sjb224 project, adding English subs to the German Anolis release. “Finally we have English subtitles added to the superior Anolis R2 DVD, which I’ve retimed. Many thanks to Turdis for the English subs which were taken from opensubtitles.org. Also thanks to bizon1984 for the original DVD. First subtitle track is the the added subs for the movie. The second subs track is for the Paul Naschy commentary.”

“A hunchback is persecuted and tormented all his life. When a beloved childhood companion dies from Tuberculosis, he cannot get over the shock. A mad scientist capitalizes upon this situation to further his immoral efforts to create artificial life.

Not only is this arguably Naschy’s finest film, this may be the ultimate example of Gothic horror in the hammer tradition. Javier Aguirre, directing the second of his two Naschy films, could well be the finest director Naschy ever worked with (including Naschy himself), and though Naschy is credited with story and screenplay, it is Aguirre who is co-wrote the literate script. The result is not only thrilling and shocking, but almost poetic in it’s examination of alienation, loyalty, the ethics of science. There is a strong Lovecraftian influence, as the doctor claims to have reconstituted a primordial being from the dawn of existence. There is even direct reference to the Necronomicon.

The credits sequence may lead you to infer that you came to the wrong movie: scenic mountain vistas backed by music appropriate for Disney’s Toby Tyler. But drunken revelry, busty bar maids, murder, and gory dissection follow within the next five minutes. Shock after shock continue unabated throughout the film. Certainly there are a few scenes that slow the frenetic pace here and there, only for the next horrific act, image, or atrocity to garner that much more impact.

Though many of the themes are recycled from earlier movies, this film pushed sleaze, gore, and violence to an unprecedented level. The excellent sets, script, and performances combine to make the tableau believable – something that H.G. Lewis, for example, never successfully realized.”

Excellent Spanish horror film high on the gore and sleaze monitor. A violent sadist goes on a rampage and kills both elderly and children.

“Lost in the woods in a storm, two members of a ballet troupe find a castle in which to spend the night. The castle is owned by a contessa who is really a vampire. She and her vampire servant (with a rotted, leathery face) terrorize the dancers, who are built more like strippers than ballerinas. Great cheap thrills.” [psychotronic]
