It's Monstruo Labor Day Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots a rare little flick all about a fire ball that falls from the skies, causing the resurrection of the dead as zombies, who crave, what else, human flesh. This is the Mexican version of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.
Eegah!! sent over a nice little sound clip of the theme for our earjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there next to the walking dead guy, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a taste of... LA INVASION DE LOS MUERTOS!
This is not the best print of this movie in the world...
Here's the popular Mexican mystic, Professor Zovek, ready to perform yet another death defying stunt. Zovek was a national hero and true athlete, able to swim, jump the boxer's rope and perform sit-ups without stopping for more than 8 hours!! He became famous for his escapes, considered superior to the great Houdini's! He would perform feats of strength like holding back 8 motorcycles by only using his teeth, everything was documented on TV. Sadly, he was killed in a mysterious helicopter crash after this production was complete. He was only 31 years old.
Hey!Watch the package!!
Zovek is firmly tied up and placed in a big red coffin and then it's lit on fire!
Zovek's excellent crew watch the scene, waiting for their boss to escape, which he does.
Blue Demon wonders when he'll be joining in on the action!.................
The evil fireball crashes to Earth and ends up in a field next to some power lines.
Zovek discovers a cave full of ugly old walking dead and barely escapes by jumping into an underground stream below.
The Professor finds the big ball of trouble and uses his psychic powers to probe its contents!
Then, this pair of revived monsters hit the scene, easily stomping a small group of soldiers.
Zovek and his girlfriend have to try and escape the overwhelming hordes of dead ones!
Blue Demon finally arrives with his sidekick. First, a zombie commandeers their Chevy and chases them down, actually running over Demon's pal. And, guess what?!.. The dude was laying out so flat on the ground that the car completely missed hitting him, whoa!!
Anyway, Zovek drives a pickup into the power tower and it falls onto the ball from space, bringing an end to all the madness!.. Tune in Wednesday when Eegah!! will man the helm.
