Storyline

Dr. Frankenstein's female descendant is an excellent mad scientist in her own right. At a ripe old age, she discovered that the blood of the supernatural wrestling hero, Santo, is a youth elixir. For years she has been periodically injecting herself, and her henchmen, with a serum made from the blood she wiped from Santo's nose. But now, her body is so saturated with the serum that she needs frequent painful injections to maintain her youth. Before the serum stops working completely, she needs to experiment on more of Santo's blood. Instead of attending another wrestling match, and hoping for another nosebleed, she has her lackeys kidnap Santo's girlfriend. Santo, of course, comes looking for her. What he'll find is a spooky underground cave, filled with corpses, bats and flying daggers. A half-man-half-gorilla will cause him trouble. But his ultimate battle will be with Frankenstein's old monster, yet again brought back to life. Written by J. Spurlin

One of the better Santo/Lucha efforts
17 September 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

A masked wrestler and his girlfriend find themselves abducted by a mad scientist to replenish her diminishing youth serum made from his blood and have to battle through her assortment of monsters and henchmen to escape.

One of the better examples of this kind of film, filled with all sorts of good stuff from the delightfully campy and enjoyable mad scientist's lab found in those old-school classics, a creepy underground lair that, while outfitted with cobweb-riddled corpses in coffins and flying bats shrieking in the darkness looks to be as cramped and detailed as a backyard home movie, and all sorts of brawls and fights from the lead, despite the fact that they're all pretty repetitive and pretty much consist of fist-chops or punches and hip-throws all over the room into the furniture. I can't say the plot makes a lot of sense (I'm only guessing on that end, it was in Spanish yet from the looks of it all, I think I'm right in that regard) but the action here more than makes up for it, turning this into one of Santo's better entries.

Rated Unrated/PG-13: Violence and mild Language.
