A Naschy monster-mash slasher.

On paper, Howl of the Devil looks like it would be a real treat for monster movie fans, with Euro-horror legend Paul Naschy playing loads of different roles, including Frankenstein's monster, The Phantom of the Opera, Quasimodo, My. Hyde and even his own classic character, wolfman Waldemar Daninsky. Throw in several attractive young women willing to bare all for their art, Euro-horror icons Howard Vernon and Caroline Munro, and some bright red gore, and an entertainingly trashy time is surely guaranteed. Except it isn't: the plot for the film is very weak and frustratingly repetitive for the most part, at least until the ending which makes no sense whatsoever. And Munro keeps her clothes on, which is just a tad disappointing.

Naschy stars as Hector Doriani, a failed stage actor whose brother Alex (also Naschy), a horror movie star, supposedly committed suicide. Hector spends his days trying to seduce his gorgeous home-keeper Carmen (Munro), with little success, and bedding pretty waifs and strays picked up by his manservant Eric (Vernon), a necrophiliac who holds seances with his previous master, Alex. Meanwhile, Hector's young nephew Adrian (Sergio Molina) holds conversations with imaginary friends - a range of classic monsters, all played by Naschy - and a mysterious killer slices up Hector's conquests once he has sent them packing. It's sex, murder, monster, repeat, which - as fun as that sounds - actually gets really boring. The monsters are particularly dull, not doing any proper monstery stuff, just chinwagging with the kid.

Check out this film for the gratuitous nudity from the lovely ladies, the gore (the juicy highlight being the evisceration of a female robber), and the totally insane ending, which features a zombie that makes Eric explode, before revealing Adrian to be the Anti-Christ, but don't be surprised if you find yourself struggling to keep your eyelids open.

3/10. Dedicated to the memory of those who made the Universal horror classics so memorable, this is has none of the style or atmosphere of those movies.

Paul Naschy's most personal horror film.

In "Howl of the Devil" sadly deceased Paul Naschy/Jacinto Molina reviews his own career as the horror movie icon.His son Sergio Molina co-stars with his legendary father.Naschy appears as Mr.Hyde,Rasputin,Quasimodo,Fu Manchu,the Monster of Frankenstein,Waldemar Daninsky and the Phantom of the Opera.The hookers are delivered to famous ex-horror actor Hector Doriani by his butler Howard Vernon.Then the women are viciously killed by a black-gloved slasher.Time has stopped in this household and only terror remained.Very entertaining and slightly ironic horror film with some gory death scenes.There is axe murder,sexual mutilation plus throat slashing and disembowelment.Oh,and there is also extremely stunning Caroline Munro.8 out of 10.A must-see for fans of Spanish horror.

Passable Jacinto Molina movie with the unforgettable actor playing several roles

This film "Howl of the Devil"--El aullido del diablo (1988)--was one of Paul's most personal projects and finest artistic achievements. Paul Naschy plays several characters in this film about a nowhere player who resides at a mansion along with his butler (Howard Vernon) and a beautiful maid (the gorgeous Brit Scream Quen : Caroline Munro) likes to pick up whores and play sex games . His nephew (his actual son Sergio Molina) lives with him , and is lost in a fantasy world of his own .

An acceptable Jacinto Molina show plying a great numer of characters as Hector Doriani / Alex Doriani / Rasputin / Frankenstein's Monster / Mr. Hyde / Phantom of the Opera / Waldemar Daninsky the Werewolf / Quasimodo / The Devil . Continental Europe's biggest horror star again with his classic character Daninsky along with many others and frightening to viewer . Jacinto Molina Aka Paul Naschy , who passed away at 2009 , was actor, screenwriter and director of various films about the personage based on fictitious character, the Polish count Waldemar Daninsky. The first film about Waldemar was ¨The mark of the Wolfman (1968)¨ by Enrique Eguiluz . In fact , in 1967 he wrote the script for La marca del Hombre Lobo (1968) . He was forced, out of necessity, to play the lead role of tormented werewolf Waldermar Daninsky after Lon Chaney Jr. turned it down. He reprised this character in over a dozen subsequent sequels. Naschy's portrayals of the anguished and sympathetic werewolf Daninsky became his signature part and consolidated his enduring cult status as a bona-fide horror icon . Other significant horror figures Paul played were the Mummy, Jack the Ripper, the Hunchback, the Frankenstein Monster, the Phantom of the Opera, and even the Devil. Naschy made his directorial debut with Inquisición (1977). His most important movies were the successful ¨Night of Walpurgis¨ by Leon Klimovsky , ¨Fury of the Wolfman¨ , ¨Doctor Jekill and the Wolfman¨ ,¨The return of the Walpurgis¨, ¨Howl of the devil¨, ¨The beast and the magic sword (1982)¨ that was filmed in Japan and finally ¨Licantropo (1998). After ¨The craving¨ it was such a box office disaster that Jacinto was bankrupt . And his performance as the Prince of Darkness in ¨El gran amor del conde Drácula¨ (1973) was one of his personal favorites . However , he was forced to turn to Japan for making artist documentaries , as he filmed ¨ Madrid Royal Palace and Museum of Prado¨ and he gets financing from Japanese producers for ¨The human beasts¨, the first co-production Spanish-Japan and followed ¨The beast and the magic sword¨ that was lavishly produced for the Paul Naschy standards.

This film ¨El Aullido Del Diablo¨ is a B series entertainment with abundant sensationalistic scenes , twisted style and a Naif-gaudy realization . This exciting terror movie contains thrills , chills , twists , turns , some nudism and lots of blood and gore . The movie has a bit of ridiculous gore with loads of blood similar to tomato and is occasionally an engaging horror movie full of zooms, slashing , impaling and anything else . This time Paul Nashy/Jacinto Molina exhibits little breast but he was a weightlifting champion . The picture is plenty of sadism , ominous criminals , supernatural events , and grisly killings . Pretty slow going, but hang in there for some surprising scenes and thrilling final twist . In the film appears a secondary cast who starred innumerable films of Spaghetti and horror genres during the 60s and 70 as the beautifil British Caroline Munro , Howard Vernon : Jess Frank's regular , Fernando Hilbeck , Mariano Vidal Molina and Cris Huerta . Good and foggy cinematography by Julio Ortas with chillon , strong colors in Maria Bava or Hammer style , though being really necessary a perfect remastering . The motion picture was professionally written/played/directed by Jacinto Molina . The flick will appeal to Paul Naschy fans and terror genre enthusiast . Rating : 6, passable and entertaining .
