Paul Naschy passed away in a year that found his work being restored and unleashed on the world once more… He signed autographs for his new comic book works with Javier Trujillo… He saw statues of his characters produced…he wrote novels of Alaric de Marnac. And he could look back at a film career that exemplified the success of a fan of the cinema made good.
Paul Naschy left us not looking back at what was, but looking ahead and expanding his imagination. I’m grateful that he was able to enjoy this year.
I could write for hours about how important his films are to me, his unique (to say the least) interpretation of the icons of the fantastic cinema are dearer to me than most of the original stories that inspired him!
I will always enjoy his films and look forward to seeing every thing he has created in recent years find an audience all around the world.
Thank you Paul Naschy, I know many people that love you and your work… we will always remember you and appreciate the stories of werewolves, hunchbacks and tragic heroes you gave us!
