SANTO vs THE MARTIAN INVASION / Producciones Cinematográficas - 1967

This is the last Mexican Monster Monday in May with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. In this adventure, Santo faces off with a bunch of Martians who land on Earth and plan on taking it over. Check out the lobby card, they make it look like they go to Mars! No, the whole flick takes place on Earth... Poor dumb kids.

Eegah!! made us a fun little soundclip of mostly kookie rock music from the club scene for our listening amusement, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there by the brick comforter, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's a sample of spacey sounds from... SANTO vs THE MARTIAN INVASION!

These are the mighty Martians, preparing to land on Earth...

Santo watches in his lab as the Martians take over communications to broadcast their plan of conquest to the public.

Makes you wonder what el Nazi must have thought when he had to get fitted with this blonde wig and 'Martian' headgear!

All a Martian has to do is touch his victims and push a button on his belt, and... Poof!

But, where did they GO, George?

Here's the toy top they used for the flying saucer, mostly hidden by the miniature foilage... I had a few tops in my day.

Martian ladies show up at the gym and turn Santo's wrasslin' buddies against him! In the very cool Adult Swim cartoon series, THE BOONDOCKS, rapper Thugnificent had a tune called "Stomp 'Em In The Nuts!" That's what the 2nd photo reminds me of.

Sultry beauty Maura (THE BATWOMAN) Monti hypnotizes Santo into believing he has unmasked himself!

Santo takes his trademark white sportscar out (this time it looks like an MG) to fight Martian crime, wherever it may exist!

Mmmm, a mess o' marvelous Mexican Martian mavens!!

Even though the Martians have invaded Earth, there's always time for fun at the nightclub!!

With all their unearthly powers, the Martians are still no match for our hero... Viva Santo!!

Santo borrows one of the Martian's invisibility belts to see where he goes when he pushes the 'GO' button... Wait, an outhouse?!

The final battle takes place inside the saucer, any guess as to who'll win?

The Earth vs Mars movie win/loss tally: Earth 17 - Mars 0
