2017 - The Year of Paul Naschy Blu-Rays!


When we learned a few months ago that Mondo Macabro was going to be releasing two of Paul Naschy's more obscure films to Blu-Ray it was fantastic news. We have been doing the NaschyCast for seven years and one of our constant hopes was that his work would be made available on video again in some format. Last year's Blu-Ray of COUNT DRACULA'S GREAT LOVE was a massive step forward and with Mondo Macabro putting out INQUISITION and EL CAMINANTE the feeling among Naschy fans was that we might soon see more of his horror films soon. 

Boy, were we right! 

News came down just last week that Scream Factory will in June be releasing a huge Naschy set of some of his best work. Here - I'll let the Scream Factory info tell all

Synopsis

Paul Naschy (born Jacinto Molina Álvarez) was Spain's answer to Lon Chaney. He has portrayed many classic monsters – the Wolfman, Frankenstein's monster, Count Dracula, the Mummy and more. He was not only a terrific actor, but an accomplished writer, producer and director. This Blu-ray box set includes five stellar films from his long and distinguished career.

Incredible news of this set. Let's hope SF add some extras to sweeten the pot. At least we know we'll get update liners by Mirek Lipinski.

I am so excited about all the Naschy releases in the pipeline! And I don't have to tell you how long overdue this shit is...and, please, if you will-indulge me as I express my sincere gratitude to both you and Troy: your laudable efforts continue to nurture my ever growing appreciation of Sr. Molina's (still!)vastly underappreciated contributions to the genre. The next obvious step is the enlistment of Rod Barnett and Troy Guinn to provide audio commentaries for all future Naschy home video releases...
