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

We All Aged a Lot That Day...
14 November 2005 | by masercotSee all my reviews

This one has Santo WITHOUT the Blue Demon. My children feel that the Blue Demon adds an important facet to the movies. I, on the other hand, am skeptical of his worth.

The movie begins logically enough. Frankenstein's daughter wants the blood of Mexican pro-wrestler Santo. It seems that the masked hero can repair damaged cells at an accelerated rate. Because they don't have a chance of taking him through force, they kidnap his girlf. The rest of the movie is spent either in the sheriff's office or Frankenstein's lair.

It is not as campy as the other Santo films that I've seen; moreover, there are some accelerated aging sequences that might disturb younger viewers. It wasn't bad, though.

Maybe I just have a weakness for mad scientists in short skirts and go-go boots...
