In Memoriam Jacinto Molina Álvarez
Rest in Peace: Jacinto Molina AKA Paul Naschy
Jacinto Molina, the genre genious behind the legendary figure of the cursed count Waldemar Daninsky, movie histories longest running Werewolf series and second longest running movie series, only topped by the James Bond movies so far, died on 30. November from cancer at the age of 75.
I can sure say that if it hadn't been for this iconic movie character of his, I wouldn't have found my undying love for this specific subgenre (werewolf movies) that soon. Thanks for those wonderful movies.
You will be sadly missed.
My heartfelt condolences go to his family and friends.
