The late Paul Naschy, Spanish horror legend and cult icon is set to appear in an upcoming horror film, albeit only in voice.
WAX is written and directed by Victor Matellano and stars Jack Taylor, a famous face on the Eurocult scene and Geraldine Chaplin (daughter of screen legend Charlie). Naschy's dulcet tones will give voice to an animatronic wax figure, and come from recordings of the star's theatrical appearances.

“WAX tells the story of a young journalist employed to spend a night at Barcelona’s Wax Museum, where paranormal activities are supposed to be taking place. He must record everything happening there. In the museum there are different wax figures including Dr. Knox one, a sadist cannibal surgeon who loves dressing up as Vincent Price in HOUSE OF WAX. Soon, the journalist will start feeling he is not alone….

It will be Matellano's first feature film, which will be followed later this year with his re-imaging of José Ramón Larraz's 1974 classic VAMPYRES, an update originally meant to be helmed by the Larraz himself, before his sad death last year.

Naschy passed away in 2009, and is still loved by the horror community for his passion for the genre.
