SANTO & BLUE DEMON vs DRACULA & THE WOLFMAN / Cinematográfica Calderón S.A. - 1973

It's Monster Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. Did you know there are 80 films starring Santo and Blue Demon?! I have about 30 titles in my collection, hey, only 50 more to go!!

Mexican lobby cards definitely have their own look, I ended up collecting about 150 of them a few years back from a seller in Mexico.

We have a soundclip for this flick, so, push the big red 'GO' button there next to the whip cream machine, now, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's some audiolicious sounds from... SANTO & BLUE DEMON vs DRACULA & THE WOLFMAN!

El Santo puts the last nail in this look-alike's coffin!

Check out this lip lock (get it?) he puts on his girl friend!

Back at the ranch, Dracula's minion, Eric, prepares to bring his master back to the land of the undead.

Eric's kind of a hack, but, he gets the job done.

The blood of the victim drips into the eye sockets of Dracula's skeleton, and, his putrid flesh and sharp duds start materializing onto his demonic bones.

Italian born Aldo Monti is Dracula, he also played Drac in SANTO AND THE TREASURE OF DRACULA four years earlier. Agustín Martínez Solares is the Wolfman, love it... Rufus Rex!

Here's a nice double portrait of our mighty hero!

Even these tough guys with guns are no match for Santo and Blue Demon!

Then, our guys kill some time by playing a game of chess...

Daaamn, those are the ugh-liest vampire girls I've ever seen!


Erik gasses Santo, then, cannot go through with killing him. He ends up stabbing the dagger into his own heart, in order to get rid of the curse he has on him.

One of Santo and Blue Demon's friends that has been turned into a Lobo is forced to walk the plank of death. Rufus Rex causes the poor guy to fall into the pit of spikes.

But, our heroes always come through in the end!

So, Drac and Rufus get to sample a bit of their own Hell!
