Steve Sullivan and I continued our Paul Naschy watch-alongs with Assignment Terror (1970). Coming early in his career (only his third script), this is an entertaining but shambolic exercise. There are traces of the elements that make up the delights of Naschy’s mature work as a writer (primarily the throwing together of enough horror elements to populate five other films), but they aren’t cohering yet, Naschy the actor isn’t used to his strengths, and the sub-par makeup brings everything down. Have a look at what the poster promises, versus what you actually get.
