"Witch" with a B...
17 October 2009 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

B-movie is about right: THE WITCHES ATTACK has a lot going for it: some pretty good action scenes, some of the gratuitous but oh-so-voluptuous vixens we've come to expect from Santo movies, and El Santo himself. While the movie borrows liberally from SANTO VS. THE VAMPIRE WOMEN (it's almost a remake, actually), it has an unevenness about it that's hard to overlook. The opening sequence, for instance, is a tad confusing in that it gives the impression that one has stumbled into the middle of a movie already in progress. It turns out to be a dream sequence, but, until that much is made clear, the viewer can't help but wonder what's going on. My biggest problem with this one are the fight scenes: the action is great, but it's all covered by two cameras- one of which either has a filter of some kind over the lens (to make a daytime shot look like a nighttime shot) or was set at a totally different F stop from the other. This wouldn't matter except for the fact that the fight scenes are edited so that footage from both cameras is intercut; the difference is jarring to see. Still, one of the more entertaining Santo movies, and worth a look.
