A must Mexican made oddity.

This Mexican made film could be described as a science fiction/horror comedy/singing cowboy musical. The video copy I rented from my local video store was in Spanish with no sub titles, but even if you don't speak Spanish you should see it. The film is about a singing cowboy who plays the accordion and falls off his horse a lot, encountering two sexy alien women. The women bring them with an assortment of monsters, including a spider, an alien with his brains exposed and something that can best described as a bipedal saber tooth cat skeleton creature that appears to be the most evil one of the lot. The alien creatures are pretty cheap looking but perhaps that is part of the gag. One of the alien women is evil and is apparently a space vampire. The other alien women romances the hero and they even sing a duet together. The interior of the rocket in which the aliens arrive is pretty elaborate for a Mexican picture. There is also scene of a space station orbiting the Earth which seems to have been taken from some other film. There is one scene where the hero's son discovers is beloved pet cow has been turned into a skeleton by the evil alien women. Considering that this film seems to have been made to at least partially appeal to children, this scene is a bit rough.
