It's been one year now since we lost Jacinto Molina, who passed away too soon at age 75 of pancreatic cancer. We are saddened that he's no longer with us, and at the same time thankful that he left us such a joyful legacy in his films. Muchas gracias, Señor Naschy. Your memory, and your joy, live on.

There was a lot of Naschy activity overnight, so let's get right to it this morning!
- Pierre Fournier of the always brilliant and fascinating Frankensteinia looks at the Naschy/Frankenstein connection with "Paul Naschy Meets Frankenstein."
- Pierre's also featuring some images collected from all the blogathon posts at his Monster Crazy tumblr, so check it out! (And once again, thanks to Pierre for designing the awesome blogathon banners and badges!)
- Rich of the superlative Doomed Moviethon blog takes a few moments to talk about what Naschy means to him, in the personal essay "Video Naschy."
- Yum-Yum at the weird and wonderful House of Self-Indulgence contributes a great review of the second Alaric De Marngac film, Panic Beats!
- Dr. Gangrene presents the second part of his review of Naschy's 1972 flick, Dr. Jekyll and the Wolfman. (Click here for part 1.)
- Another fellow LOTT D-er chimes in, as T.L. Bugg at The Lightning Bug's Lair shines his light on A Dragonfly for Each Corpse.
- Jon Kitley has done up his site Kitley's Krypt right, with a special Naschyblog page that is as amazing to look at as read! He'll be posting updates every day of the blogathon, and has already spotlighted Hunchback of the Morgue. Check it out, and keep checking back! (And check out his Naschy t-shirts!)
- Moon in the Gutter author Jeremy Richey also reviews A Dragonfly for Each Corpse, with some great high-quality images from the flick!
- And here at Mad Mad Mad Mad Movies, we've had a Vicar-ious sonnet in honor of Paul, "Jacinto Meets the Wolf Man," and this morning posted a consideration of one of Paul Naschy's own favorite entries in his filmography, The Frenchman's Garden. And there's much more to come!
