El Retorno del Hombre Lobo (Return of the Wolfman) is a 1980 Spanish horror film that is the ninth in a long series about the werewolf Count Waldemar Daninsky, played by Paul Naschy. In the United States, the film was released theatrically and on VHS as The Craving in 1985, and more recently on DVD and Blu-ray as Night of the Werewolf.
This was by far Naschy's favorite Hombre Lobo film, according to interviews. Naschy considered it a remake of his 1970 classic La Noche de Walpurgis (Walpurgis Night). The film had a much larger budget than previous Naschy werewolf productions.
Naschy followed this up with another werewolf film, La Bestia y la Espada Magica (The Beast and the Magic Sword).
Waldemar Daninsky is sentenced to be executed along with Elizabeth Bathory and a number of witches. Since it is nearly impossible to truly kill him, he is left in a kind of living death, with a silver dagger through his heart and an iron mask to keep him from biting. Centuries later, the dagger is removed and Daninsky returns to activity, fighting against a revived Elizabeth Bathory and her demonic manservant.
