Santo y Blue Demon contra Dracula y el Hombre Lobo (1973)

Santo made eight movies in 1973 and I can honestly recommend every single one of them to you.

That’s because in the world of Santo, anything can happen. Sometimes, Santo movies are just about wrestling. Other times, they are take on whatever trends are hot, like Eurospy films, Hammer movies or even karate films.

For example, this one starts with Santo and his girlfriend Lina (Nubia Marti, Santo vs. the She Wolves) go to visit her uncle, Professor Cristaldi. It turns out that 400 years ago, their family killed Dracula and the Wolfman, who are back for revenge from the grave.

Santo gets Blue Demon on board for help, while the monsters plan on turning Lina and her family into monsters. He even turns Lina’s mom into a vampire and kidnaps her, which is a really devious move.

The werewolf’s name is Rufus Rex. Do you need a better reason to watch this movie? How about Santo and Blue Demon defeat evil by throwing both of them into a put of spikes?

Aldo Monti — as Dracula — menaced Santo before in Santo in the Treasure of Dracula, which was recut and re-released with full color (and full frontal nudity) — to the chagrin of the Santo family — as El Vampiro y El Sexo.
