THE DOCUMENTARY

As it can be seen in his home letter box, Jacinto Molina was two people at the same time. On one hand, he was the furrier’s son from Postas street in Madrid and the young man who almost went to Rome and Tokyo Olympic Games.On the other hand, Paul Naschy, the myth who signed autographs for hours in New York and Los Angeles and the one who received a call from Steven Spielberg asking him for copies of his films.

Hosted by the american director and screenwriter Mick Garris (Masters of Horror, The Stand, The Shining), THE MAN WHO SAW FRANKENSTEIN CRY revises the career of both aspects, intermingling them in order to explain how Paul Naschy figure would have never existed without the thousands of anecdotes that make up Jacinto Molina’s biography. For this, part of his personal photographic archive was recovered and essential places of his life will be visited, as for example the town of Mazcuerras in Cantabria, where he lived during some years of the Spanish Civil War, or Burgos, where part of his imaginary was moulded, imaginary that was expressed in his cinema, and also it’s the place where he is buried nowadays; or his own house where he received fake bomb parcels from extreme right ideology supporters for being part of films such as Comando Txikia or El Francotirador.At the same time, cinema friends as Joe Dante, John Landis, Jordi Grau or Nacho Cerdá talk about their experiences with Naschy and dissect his career, telling anecdotes and less known periods of the filmmaker’s life.

THE MAN WHO SAW FRANKENSTEIN CRY, apart from a large amount of photographic material and private recordings of Paul Naschy’s life, includes clips and extracts of the following films: Night of the Werewolf; The Mark of the Wolfman aka Frankenstein's Bloody Terror; The beast and the magic sword; Night of the Howling Beast; The Mummy's Revenge; El caminante; Inquisition; Panic Beats; El último Kamikaze; Cannibal Killers - Human Beast; Night of the Werewolf; House of Psychotic Women; Exorcism; A Dragonfly for Each Corpse; Hunchback of the Morgue; Horror Rises from the Tomb; Rojo Sangre; Curse of the Devil aka Return of the Werewolf; Vengeance of the Zombies; The Valdemar Heritage; The Forbidden Shadow; O Apóstolo.
