The Night of the Executioner
Dr. Hugo Arranz (Paul Naschy) is commemorating his 50th birthday with his wife and daughter. As the celebrations reach their height, the family are terrorized by a gang of violent street thugs who have broken into their home. Initially, the gang are after jewels and cash. But once they have their helpless victims tied up and defenseless, their thoughts turn to violence. They rape Arranz's wife and daughter and then, annoyed by the doctor's protests, they cut out his tongue and leave him for dead.
Arranz survives the attack and recovers after a stay in the hospital. Abandoning his medical practice, he seeks vengeance on the men and women who destroyed his life. He embarks on a strenuous course of physical training, involving knives, guns and punishing bouts of weight lifting. Finally, he is ready to go in pursuit of his prey. But to track them down, he must enter the sleazy underworld that his potential victims inhabit. In the process, Dr Arranz begins to learn much, not only about his targets but also about himself. The Night of the Executioner was Paul Naschy's last complete film as writer/director/ actor. It's a shocking and thrilling ride into the dark underbelly of the city and a true tribute to its star's ability to craft exciting and thought-provoking entertainment.
