Los Angeles, CA – *Beware the Full Moon !**The Dead Walk Among Us!

BCI Eclipse, a Navarre Corporation Company, under their Deimos label, proudly announces the May 8th DVD premiere of two cult classics from Spain’s legendary horror star Paul Naschy: “Night of the Werewolf” and “Vengeance of the Zombies.” Long sought after by legions of Naschy’s fans all over the world, Deimos will be releasing all-new special edition DVDs of these two Euro-Horror classics, remastered from the original negative in high definition and presented complete and uncut for the first time on DVD.

In addition, each release boasts a coffin-full of value-added bonus features, including the original Castilian and English-dubbed audio tracks, a new video introduction by Paul Naschy, still and advertising galleries, alternate scenes and extensive liner notes from Paul Naschy expert Mirek Lipinski.. SRP is a devilishly low $19.98 each. The announcement was made by Cliff MacMillan, Director of Acquisitions, BCI.

“We’re thrilled to present these horror classics for the first time on DVD in their original versions,” noted MacMillan. “From the presentation to the supplements, we wanted to make sure the DVD releases honor the imagination and artistry of Paul Naschy.”


For nearly four decades, Paul Naschy has been one of the true legends of Euro-Horror. Thrilling both fans and critics the world over from genre to mainstream, Naschy has created some of the most frightening and enduring horror films made, often serving as writer, director and star. His portrayal of the doomed lycanthrope (werewolf) Waldemar Daninsky has gained him instant recognition among horror fans everywhere and his depictions of other classic monsters – Dracula, a Mummy, Mr. Hyde, as well as a host of demons – have earned him the title of “the Spanish Lon Chaney.”

Released in 1980 and filmed in authentic Spanish castles, “Night of the Werewolf” (El Retorno Del Hombre Lobo) remains one of Naschy’s most impressive films. A sumptuous Gothic horror fest, “Night” pits Naschy’s werewolf, Waldemar Daninsky, against the (real-life) Hungarian blood countess Elizabeth Bathory. Filled with werewolf transformations, seductive vampire women, bloody stakes through the heart and piercing silver daggers, the film has garnered praise over the years for its inventiveness with the genre and inspired use of macabre imagery.

1972’s “Vengeance of the Zombies” (La Rebelion De Las Muertas) offers a triple threat performance by Naschy as a Hindu mystic, his evil brother and the Devil himself. Zombies, satanic voodoo rituals and gruesome killings combine to make “Vengeance” a bizarre ride in the best horror tradition, a film that defines the term “Euro-Cult” as few other films can. Reportedly, practitioners of black magic have found hidden meanings in the film – adding a new level of fear and terror to “Vengeance’s” reputation. Because of censorship rules in Spain during the film’s initial theatrical release, Naschy filmed alternate “clothed” scenes to replace the nude scenes filmed for international theatrical release. Deimos found these lost scenes and presents them as a bonus feature on the DVD.

BCI dug deep into the film vaults in Spain to find bonus features that are worthy of these cult film masterpieces, exhuming rare stills, lost footage, theatrical trailers and artwork guaranteed to sink your teeth into!
