The only version of this movie I could find was neither dubbed, nor subtitled. This means that, as a white girl who was born and raised in California, I understand about 25% of what the characters are saying. No matter, I still love this film! The good and noble El Santo, professional wrestler and crimefighter, teams up with his best buddy, the Blue Demon, to battle the newly risen Dracula and his gold disco-shirted sidekick, Rufus Rex the Werewolf! There's some great, cheesy, fun stuff here: underground laboratories, a rubber bat that flaps its wings spastically (in a scene that made me laugh so hard I almost fell off my chair) before turning into the suave Dracula, a little girl with the worlds worst mullet and, last but not least, a pit lined with sharpened stakes, over which our heroes must walk on a narrow plank. Darn those pesky werewolves, they keep shaking the plank and the tension is insufferable!!! El Santo battles through it all to save his lovely girlfriend and his buddy Blue Demon, and there's time enough for a few games of chess and cards and, of course, a couple of wrestling matches before it's all over and the good guys live happily ever after.
If you like corny Dracula films and honest-to-goodness wrestling matches, then do NOT miss this one! It's a lot of fun. All of the Santo films are.
