My neighbours parents let us have a movie night/sleepover party in his basement, the movie choices? "Annie" and "American Werewolf in London".
I watched "Fury of the Wolfman" today. Well...that was rough. No disrespect to those who love these films, but this one was kind of a mess. Maybe it was the edit I saw. It seemed to have been edited with a buzz saw and velcro. Naschy himself was the only highlight for me. I liked his Wolfman, although sometimes his attacks were frantic and savage, and other times he was just kind of wandering around town.
The plot about the mad scientist chick was hard to understand until they spelled it all out at the end. The strange hippie commune/Island of Dr. Moreau/Phantom of the Opera castle was just bizarre. Guys walking around in suits of armor for no apparent reason? Plant people?
It's fun in a "bad movie" sort of way, but I guess I was expecting something a little more legit, based on good word of mouth over the years. I wasn't expecting Hammer, but maybe something like an AIP flick.
Most of his movies have bare boobies, some even have full frontal nudity. The werewolf is cool too!
Watching "The Werewolf VS the Vampire Women" right now. It's a re-run on the monster channel.
Most Naschy films have been kind of murdered with edits/translations. I love them but will admit they are an acquired taste.
I wish I could get originals with subtitles...
"Fury" was boobie free. I'm thinking it may have been heavily edited. There were scenes that sure looked like they were leading to nudity, only to cut to an unrelated scene.
I did find it funny that Wolfman and the heorine had time to shack up before the evil doctor came back to her castle.
