Episode 53 puts us back in 2004 to discuss a film that features Naschy in a small but impressive role as - wait for it - the bad guy! ROTTWEILER is an English language film made in
Spain by American director Brian
Yuzna during his short lived Fantastic Factory production company's existence.
We start the conversation talking about the various film directed by Yuzna and
segue into the other movies made by Fantastic Factory. There are some good
films and some bad films on that list!
ROTTWEILER was based on a novel by Spanish author Alberto Vázquez Figueroa who also wrote the script. In cases like this I love to read the source work but I haven't been able to locate an English translation anywhere so if anyone out there has any information on such a thing please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm very curious about the novel's structure in comparison to the film and how close the story stays to the details of the book.
