Upon coming to the statue of Joseph Guillotin, the wax museum tour guide states that Guillotin was the first man to die in the device that bears his name. This is not true. Guillotin died of an infection twenty years after France's Reign of Terror. See more »

Not worth its cult status
19 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

El Santo, a Mexican superhero who's part Batman and part Hulk Hogan, gets involved in a mad scientist's nefarious schemes. When he's not solving the mysteries of a bizarre wax museum, he's trashing his opponents in a wrestling ring.

I've been curious about Mexican wrestling movies for a few years, so when I got the chance to check out two of them, I decided to take the bait. This one was the better one of the two (the other one, Las Luchadoras Contra la Mumia, was just excruciating). While I'm not sorry I watched them, I can't say that anyone who hasn't seen them has missed anything.

El Santo en el Museo de Cera is silly and incredibly dated. See it only if you love obscure and very bad films.
