| Bawdy Historical Hokum
Another review of a Paul Naschy film from me and this time it's a tongue in cheek bawdy historical black comedy where Naschy plays the devil in human form , calls himself Leonardo , takes a young man called Tomas under his wing and shows how humanity can be easily taken in they give way to the sins of lust and greed

That's basically it story wise but to be fair it is relatively amusing and Naschy appears to be having a lot of fun in a type of role I rarely see him in which probably explains why I think it's one of his better performances from an actor who isn't really in danger of being Oscar nominated . That said EL CAMINANTE is very one note and episodic . Leonardo and Tomas arrive at someones dwellings , Leonardo rogers the mistress of the house to within an inch of her life and then it's back to the beaten track for a couple of minutes before arriving at another dwelling to do a bit more rogering . Keep repeating again until the end credits come up . There's not really much more to the plot than that and any subtext there is is all too obvious - don't give in to temptation . There's also a rather haphazard element to the editing which gives the impression some of the film has ended up on the cutting room floor when it shouldn't have but like I said things happen that are relatively amusing in a relatively amusing film
