The Spanish Horror Genre has lost another face that fans remember from the few films that she appeared in, actress Emma Cohen. While she didn’t appear in a ton of horror films, the ones that she did, she made an impact. At least she did to me. My very first Paul Naschy film was Horror Rises from the Tomb and featured the beautiful Cohen. With her innocent and sad eyes, she made a perfect person to do battle with the dreaded Armand de Marnac, played devilishly by Naschy.
She would also appear in genre films such as Jess Franco’s Count Dracula (1970), Cut-Throats Nine (1972), Horror Rises from the Tomb & The Cannibal Man (both 1973), Cross of the Devil & Night of the Walking Dead (both 1975). Because of these films, we will always get to remember Cohen whenever we bust out one and get to see her perform. Our thoughts go out to her friends and family.
