La Bestia y la Espada Magica (The Beast and the Magic Sword) is a 1983 Spanish/Japanese horror film that is the tenth in a long series about the werewolf Count Waldemar Daninsky, played by Paul Naschy. Although the film was a Spanish/ Japanese co-production, it was never theatrically shown in Japan, nor in any other country outside of Spain. The film was never dubbed in English, nor offered on VHS or DVD in the U.S.
This film was followed by the 11th film in the series, entitled Licantropo, years later.

Plot[edit]

In the 16th Century, the lycanthrope Waldemar Daninsky goes from his native Europe to Japan, seeking a way to cure himself of being a werewolf. Only a Japanese sorcerer named Kian and a magic silver sword can save him. This film moves the Daninsky family curse back to a medieval setting, as Naschy felt the Daninsky saga need not always be confined to a modern day setting.
