The Rider of the Skulls
11 November 2018 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

This film begins with a masked caballero named "El Charro de las Calaveras" (Dagoberto Rodriguez) riding into a small village which has a cemetary that is unkempt and littered with skulls. Not long after that he comes across the body of a man who was recently murdered. Since it is getting dark he decides to stop at a nearby hacienda where he is invited to stay the night. While there he is told that a monster of some sort has killed a number of people and scared everybody away. And then that very night a werewolf enters that same house and almost kills one of the occupants. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this movie appeared to be three seperate made-for-television episodes cobbled together to feature a Mexican version of the Lone Ranger fighting against a werewolf, a vampire and then a headless horseman respectfully. Definitely an interesting combination. Unfortunately, the overall quality suffered from an obvious low budget as the action sequences, special effects, script and acting were all bad. Really bad. That being said-and even though I found it somewhat compelling in its own unique way-I honestly cannot rate this film any higher than I have.
