We All Aged a Lot That Day..., 14 November 2005
Author: masercot from Manassas, Va

This one has Santo WITHOUT the Blue Demon. My children feel that the Blue Demon adds an important facet to the movies. I, on the other hand, am skeptical of his worth.

The movie begins logically enough. Frankenstein's daughter wants the blood of Mexican pro-wrestler Santo. It seems that the masked hero can repair damaged cells at an accelerated rate. Because they don't have a chance of taking him through force, they kidnap his girlf. The rest of the movie is spent either in the sheriff's office or Frankenstein's lair.

It is not as campy as the other Santo films that I've seen; moreover, there are some accelerated aging sequences that might disturb younger viewers. It wasn't bad, though.

Maybe I just have a weakness for mad scientists in short skirts and go-go boots...
