A Mexican Wrestling classic
9 May 1999 | by two-tonSee all my reviews

Samson is the finest superhero of filmdom. A caped, masked Mexican wrestler who drives a sportscar. What more could you want.

He doesn't say much, but that doesn't matter when you're dealing with the undead.

The final scene is muy bueno. Much better than Forrest Gump!
