It is with great and sincere sadness that I must report the passing of a horror legend. Naschy.com and other sites have broken the news this morning that Jacinto Molina, better known to his legions of fans as Paul Naschy, has passed away at the age of 75.
I'm really having a hard time expressing the weight with which this news has hit me, and find myself not in a state of mind right now to fully process it, let alone give the great man the kind of remembrance he so richly deserves. I am not at all joking or exaggerating when I tell you, my loyal readers, I'm sitting at my computer with tears in my eyes this morning.
The Duke and I started this blog because of our giddy shared discovery of the joys of Paul Naschy's films, and his passing leaves an unfillable void in our hearts. Expect a more fitting tribute after a period of mourning, and please check out our previous reviews of Naschy's work to relive some of the joy he's given us. Better yet, get yourself some of his movies, pour yourself a Sangria, and remember him as he'd have wanted: on screen, in a world of magic and monsters.
