Paul Naschy – El caminante AKA The Traveller (1979)

On the surface, EL CAMINANTE (THE TRAVELER) can be considered a pitch black comedy much in the tradition of TOM JONES, ribald and humorously wicked, a morality play set against a backdrop of excessive fornication and gluttony.

For the most part these scenes are poorly shot and you can tell that the director was working on a very low budget. Read More »
