Storyline

The film begins early in the century with our villain, apparently some sort of sorcerer or alchemist. His "satanic power" manifests itself rather arbitrarily throughout the movie in various ways. He is imprisoned and sentenced to death but places himself in a deathlike trance prior to his execution and is buried. Fifty years later a pair of grave diggers unearth his coffin and are understandably surprised when he pops up and kills them. The villain sets up shop in a cobwebby old house and begins his reign. He goes out to, hypnotize a young woman, bring her back to the house, then shut her in a room where she is incinerated by flames (off-screen). Enter Blue Demon. He gets involved when his ring assistant is killed by the sorcerer. The police investigate but find no clues. In the first of a seemingly endless number of puzzling sequences, Blue Demon decides to check things out for himself. Although the police have already investigated the crime scene in broad daylight and removed the ...

Blue Demon scores...
18 May 2010 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Turning in a solid performance, Blue Demon shoulders the burden of stardom in this one- although longtime friendly rival El Santo manages to pop up here, as well. (The irony isn't lost of fans of these two: in more than one movie, they seem at odds with one another, although their seeming mutual distrust of one another is carefully balanced with a begrudging respect; still, it's this undercurrent of mistrust that lends their scenes together much of their humor.) Blue proves more than a match for "the powers of Satan," and, being (as noted) a credible enough performer, keeps things interesting both in the ring and out. Of all the luchadores, it seems to me, Blue Demon was perhaps the most interesting (next to Santo himself).
