El espectro del terror (1973) -- Jose Maria Ellorietta's lost Spanish classic. Considered to be the holy grail of Spanish horror films. A psychopath is obsessed with killing the most beautiful women in his path. Police investigate the identification and whereabouts, but do not get results. What they do not know is that it is not an ordinary human being, for the wickedness is mixed with paranormal elements beyond death.. A superb slasher / gialloesque maniac on the loose flick. The killer happens to be a Vietnam war veteran, not disimilar to other movies of the early 70's. What seperates this from them is Ellorietta's style of movie making. Dreamlike sequences abound and the cinematography is overwhelmingly surreal. The film grips like a vice as we descend deeper into the killer's psychosis and the scare scenes are pure Spanish horror gold. Unmissable.
