It's Mexican Horror Friday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. A lot of people don't know who Zovek is, he was an extraordinary athlete with highly developed mental powers, and, created death defying acts that outdid the incredible Harry Houdini! It's all documented.

That's the ever popular Tin-Tan being attacked by a zombie in the photo insert.

Zovek was also a martial arts instructor, he died at age 31 in a helicopter crash in 1972 before the release of his second movie, BLUE DEMON Y ZOVEK EN LA INVASION DE LOS MUERTOS, the Mexican version of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD!

Eegah!! sent over a cool little musical soundclip with horns from this flick, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the potted Triffid, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's our audio offering for... EL INCREIBLE PROFESOR ZOVEK!

Zovek hypnotizes this lady to try and get some clues to a strange mystery...

She tells him about a group of mysterious scientists, interested in corpses!

In the meantime, Zovek performs a death defying act on Mexican television.. Dude has to make a living, ya know!

No, this isn't an act, Zovek gets captured by the sadistic Dr. Druso and ends up in yet another death defying prediciment!

The doctor is fast at work in his lab, creating all kinds of abominations from his stolen corpses! He keeps them locked up in the basement.

This corpse was pretty crusty when they got it! Looks like a reworked mummy mask from some other production.

This poor guy has a problem, when the place burns down at the end, he can't get away.. Yow!

Then, there's this feamale Frankenstein monster!..

This girlie has a big hole in her head with her brain hanging out... An awkward make-up effect!

Dr, Druso in all his glory. On a whole, for me, Mexican madmen were the most insane and sadistic! They always had interesting scientifical equipment too.

Here's the doc verifying cup size!

Zovek puts this dude in a death cradle!

The push button age was awesome! Zovek lets all the inmates out of the asylum. Better watch out, Dr. Druso!!

In a very satisfying move, Zovek puts out this ass hole's only good eye!!

And, like ants, the many freaks created by the doctor just mow down anything that gets in their way!!

I recently found this gem in a street vendors cart for a dollar here in San Antonio. It is on the Phoenix label. Wonderful stuff, but alas, no subtitles.
