Its Not a Joke, It's Possible Match., Horror and Wrestlers in a Good Mexican Movie!
In his pure style Fernando Mendez give to the wrestlers films an interesting vision of the horror, even with a very conventional script, he takes advance of the very popular wrestlers environment in Mexican society and gets memorable sequences of these fights, with professional wrestlers as the propitious victims of a mad doctor(Carlos Riquelme)customized as an old men lottery bills seller, who wants their powerful body condition to create a superior Monster. and was Ruvinskis the only wrestler who resist the operation to convert him in a strange monster with a gorilla brain, mixture of Frankenstein and King Kong ,he go up to a building just before to be killed.
Mendez mix maybe like any other director in Mexican films the horror and wrestlers and gets,with the support of an efficient casting over all Wolf Ruvinskis ,good actor and wrestler,-a very entertained movie and one of the best of its genre.
