Santo en el Hotel de la Muerte (1963)

Federico Curiel had no idea how to make a Santo film. Instead of putting the Man in the Silver Mask front and center, he was a side character as normal people became the heroes. Nobody wanted that. However, this one does have a great poster and some atmosphere.

The real stars of the movie are Fernando Casanova, Ana Bertha Lepe and Beto el Boticario, while Santo just shows up as needed to stop evil from attacking the people Curiel really saw as the stars.

There’s a decent match with Santo and Black Shadow, some fun jazz and a great hotel. It’s not anywhere near where our hero would soon go, but it’s not a bad time.
