La Bestia y la Espada Magica: 1983
Aconito Films / Amachi
Color 118 min.
aka The Beast and the Magic Sword
aka La Bestia y los Samurais
Director: Jacinto Molina (Paul Naschy)
Cast: Shigeru Amachi, Beatriz Escudero, Junko Asahina
Plot: Naschy's second time in the directors
chair yields easily the longest (almost two hours!)
and certainly the last movie in the three decade
long series of Waldemar Daninsky movies. This time
he is in sixteenth century Japan (now they're ignoring
the laws of time, not just life, eh?) seeking a cure
for his curse. He doesn't find it, and he gets killed,
yet again, by yet another woman that loves him, ending
the series without too much innovation.
