"I don't speak Spanish and couldn't understand a word of this two-feature DVD (there are no subtitles) but I can still confidently state that Santo and Blue Demon versus the Monsters is one of the best films I have ever seen. It stars six different monsters: Mummy, Cyclops, Vampiro, Lady Vampiro, Wolfman and Frankenstein. Because the action occurs in Mexico the monsters look a little different than they do in America. I especially liked the Mexican version of Dracula.
It is also good to see Cyclops getting some screen time. He has been woefully underrepresented on the American screen.
Monsters is black and white, but that is okay. As usual there are some beautiful females, both good and bad, in the film.
I heartily recommend this film for fans of either monster or rassling movies. A friend from Puerto Rico tells me that he remembers watching this film on Sunday afternoon on TV, so you know that Santo is the real deal. He died in 1984, and except for one moment of weakness a week before he died he never once removed his mask in public.
Santo is like a Mexican James Bond in that respect. He is also immaculately dressed. Even when he is beating up bad guys he usually wears a nice sports jacket that matches his mask. No wonder the girls go crazy over him.
What a man."
