Damn. I wasn't even aware of the cancer diagnosis.

R.I.P. A truly underrated genre icon.

EDIT: Someone already put up a tribute video on YouTube:

Re: R.I.P. Paul Naschy

This is very odd, I wrote a report about him when I was in high school after reading his autobiography (it's pretty interesting if you get to find it.) I remember I got laughed at for liking him and his "boring" movies by other students back then when I presented it. Last night for the first time in years I was re-reading it. I've always liked a lot of his horror films, I have pretty well all of them, damn

Like Chad, I was unaware of his Cancer Diagnosis. One of the posters in that forum said he had been diagnosed last November.
