Paul Naschy Collection

Scream Factory: The Paul Naschy Collection!

Our friends at Scream Factory are on a roll this week. First it was The Lawnmower Man and now they’ve unleashed the Paul Naschy Collection on Blu-Ray! Much like the bang up job they did with their Vincent Price Collections. The Paul Naschy Collection will make fright film fans certainly sit up and take notice!

Paul Naschy in fact has been called the Spanish Lon Chaney. In addition I think that is rather fitting as one of his favorite films from his youth was 1943’s Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man. A film of course that featured Lon Chaney Jr. in the titular role of the Wolf Man!

I bring that up because not only did Paul Naschy also portray a victim of Lycanthropy in 12 different films. But Naschy also was also able to make the acquaintance of the legendary Boris Karloff as well. Naturally Karloff wasn’t in the 1943 film but he obviously helped to make the Frankenstein Monster a cultural icon. The meeting between the two was thanks to the classic TV show I Spy, which was in Spain shooting on location. Paul has mentioned that it was an incredible thrill to meet the actor.

However the icon was apparently suffering from poor health and rather depressed. Furthermore this would lead to an 2010 documentary about Naschy entitled The Man Who Saw Frankenstein Cry. A posthumous documentary where many filmmakers share their respect such as Joe Dante, John Landis, Mick Garris, and Javier Botet to name a few.

I think you can see why Scream Factory’s The Paul Naschy Collection is so important. They have chosen 5 films from his long career of over 121 roles, playing characters from Jack the Ripper to The Mummy! A sampling of some of his best work and of course as always they have added worthwhile extras.
