Horror Rises From The Tomb (1973)

The late Paul Naschy stars as three related characters in this Spanish production that has been dubbed into English.

We begin by seeing Naschy’s 15th Century character beheaded for being a warlock before cutting to the present day. A group of friends go to the current Naschy’s estate and dabble in some clairvoyance. Then all hell breaks loose.

I think I have seen a sanitised television version of the film as there is not much on screen violence and the sexual overtones have been removed.

Spain has never been renowned for brilliant film-making and this does nothing to address that.
