Movies like "Doctor Infierno" make me sad, but only on a completely personal level Sad about myself, because I don't have the guts to make my very own demented horror movie like Paco Limón did. He proves that it doesn't require an immense budget, a large crew of people or even a properly elaborated and coherent screenplay! All that he had to work with was an admirable portion of courage and a vast knowledge of the horror genre's greatest classics. I deeply respect Limón for that, even if his film is likely to get misunderstood and ridiculed by mainstream horror audiences (if they ever get to see it, that is).
"Doctor Infierno" is one gigantic tribute to the twisted world of independent horror cinema, made by a genre lover and exclusively intended for the eyes of fellow genre lovers. The script doesn't make sense at all, but simultaneously it covers all of horrors' favorite topics and delightful clichés. We have mad scientists, gore, vulgar humor, absurd characters, perverted sex, cheesy make-up effects and a climax that actually raises more questions than it answers. The plot is virtually impossible to summarize, but this is as close as I get: Doctor Infierno, who's actually a gynecologist, found one single cure for all the major diseases in the world. In exchange for a worldwide and free distribution of the medicine, our good doctor only asks for one thing World domination! Meanwhile, he tries to get rid of some of his human guinea pigs, but the medicine gave them superhuman strengths and they fight back. Paco Limón did practically everything by himself (direction, sound, editing, producing ) and for the extended cast he probably depended on his friends and/or people who owned him a favor. So, you can imagine the whole thing looks pretty amateurish, but I prefer to describe it as charming and experimental. The entire film is filmed in black and white, except for one outrageously insane flashback sequence. Usually it's the other way around. Some parts in the films are hilarious, others are downright inept, but the wholesome is definitely a triumph for free-spirited filmmakers. Horror fanatics all over the world, especially the ones that one day aspire to make their own homage to the genre, should rejoice and support Paco Limón by watching his film.
