Storyline

Dr. Frankenstein's female descendant is an excellent mad scientist in her own right. At a ripe old age, she discovered that the blood of the supernatural wrestling hero, Santo, is a youth elixir. For years she has been periodically injecting herself, and her henchmen, with a serum made from the blood she wiped from Santo's nose. But now, her body is so saturated with the serum that she needs frequent painful injections to maintain her youth. Before the serum stops working completely, she needs to experiment on more of Santo's blood. Instead of attending another wrestling match, and hoping for another nosebleed, she has her lackeys kidnap Santo's girlfriend. Santo, of course, comes looking for her. What he'll find is a spooky underground cave, filled with corpses, bats and flying daggers. A half-man-half-gorilla will cause him trouble. But his ultimate battle will be with Frankenstein's old monster, yet again brought back to life. Written by J. Spurlin

Santo vs. Frankenstein's Daughter
2 December 2008 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Santo vs. Frankenstein's Daughter (1971)

* (out of 4)

Freda Frankenstein is well over 100 years old and she's starting to feel unhappy about being old. Thankfully the mean monster is on hand to help her try and get some of Santo's blood so that she can be young again. I must admit that I'm not a fan of these Santo movies and I've yet to really understand their charm. I love seeing monsters as much as anyone else but I still don't understand the entertainment value some see in these films. I certainly wish I liked them more but I just can't. I think my pain problem is with Santo who I just can't see as a hero and I'm also not entertained by the wrestling scenes. Some of the monster moments are cute in a "C" movie way but these sequences are far between.
