UNCHIVALROUS





















PANIC BEATS, d. Paul Naschy (1983)


The past returning to kill the present is a recurrent Naschy film, and many of his films feature a resurrected spirit, often a Werewolf, but just as likely to be a Mummy, or a Witch or Dr, Jekyll or an evil, misogynistic Knight. This motif not only allows our star to play more than one character, but it also injects the narrative with an antidote to the cut corners and non-sequiturs of the script: this crazy shit is supernatural, anything can happen.
