Rest in Peace: Jacinto Molina AKA Paul Naschy





Rest in Peace: Jacinto Molina AKA Paul NaschyIcon. That's a word never to be thrown around lightly because it applies to so few individuals. Jacinto Molina, best known to fans as Paul Naschy, was the embodiment of that word both here and in his home country of Spain. It's with a heavy heart that we share the news with you that he's no longer with us.

Molina lost his ongoing battle with cancer today at the all too young age of 75.

Throughout mainly the Sixties and Seventies Naschy was the Spanish equivalent to the great Lon Chaney, Sr. There are few movie monsters out there that he did not don the make-up and portray, from Dracula to his most famous creation: the tortured werewolf known as Waldemar Daninsky, whom he played twelve different times. The man has done it all and will be severely missed.

Today the hearts of horror fans everywhere are a bit heavier and Hollywood's lights are a bit dimmer. Our deepest sympathies go out to Jacinto's friends, family, and constituents. See you on the other side. Godspeed.
