Those were the days when Mexican cinema could mix horror and comedy in a delightful manner. Starring the great and only "Tin-Tan" and "Loco Valdèz" (brothers in real life), this movie is filled with naive humor and cheesy lines.
The settings are actually pretty good! In a scene it's even spoofed the famous Frankenstein monster birth. Also, the lab is very well done! The black and white cinematography adds a special feeling to the movie; because it might be old, but it's entertaining. Don't expect horror or scary scenes, in fact, you should expect a family movie with funny scenes. Even that a cat is thrown into a liquid experiment and drowns. Even that scene is naive. Great f/x by the way! Specially when Tin-Tan runs in a skull outfit. Aww. The scene deserves it's credit.
Tin Tan and Loco steal the show with their comical performances. Give it a try if you appreciate Mèxico's golden era in cinema. This is the typical family movie with adventure situations and silly jokes.
