It´s not a bad movie...it´s horrible
13 August 2002 | by (Mexico, Mexico) – See all my reviews

If you are fan of Ed Wood´s work, You will love Juan Orol´s doings. This movie must have the worst script ever. It is bad, but it´s great for fun: so absurd, such stupid dialogues and with a huge lack of sense. A truly mexican cult classic worth watching...only once!
