First of all, I promised Grant that I'd post LEYENDAS MACABRAS DE LA COLONIA today, but, it froze up right at the beginning and I had to switch to this crazy thing. So, sorry about that...

So, here we go with a Spanish/Italian production filmed in England, it's about a scientist's experiment with a deadly bacteria that goes awry and leaves him horribly deformed. Then, the monster runs amok, killing anyone that gets in his way!

It stars David (TROG) Warbeck, Janet (EATEN ALIVE!) Agren, Roberto (THE GREEN INFERNO) Ricci, José (NIGHT OF THE WALKING DEAD) Lifante and Miguel (THE REVOLUTION OF THE SEVEN MADMEN) Herrera.

Things start going haywire when the monster is loose and's on the warpath. He kills the girl's boyfriend and then goes after her!

Just for fun, this guy looks like a mix between Walt Disney and John Emery!

This guy looks like a mix between Bill Nye and Pauly Shore!

And this guy, well, he just looks dead!

The killing doesn't stop there, here's a gal taking a shower, when, the monster breaks through the glass and chokes her out... Notice her underarm hair, popular with European women back in the day!

While this crowd is enjoying a movie at the theater, the monster claws its way through the screen, causing the people to scatter out of the show...

Here's a nice shot of some eighties night life in England.

No place is safe from the thing, it just claws through doors to get to more victims!

By the way, the military is ready to go into action and even use bombs to rid the community of the infected creature!

Here's a shot I like, the checkerboard hat and light tie in is pretty cool.

Our hero, Captain Kirk, fires some shots into the monster, which actually slows it down a little. But it gets away yet again...

The thing lumbers around as if it's lost. No wonder, just take a look at that face, not any fun to be a slimy old monster. Reminds me of one of those wild Filipino monsters from the Blood Island movies!

In a last attempt to stop the monster, the cops fire lots of bullets into it, but, it will just not go down! So, what's it gonna take?

Like in THE BLOB, Captain Kirk grabs a fire extinguisher and engulfs the monster with an icy fog. After emptying the extinguisher, the thing gets frozen and finally dies right in front of our eyes! So, there you go, another one bites the ice, a warning to other monsters with bad intent! Join us again in October as we gear up for Halloween Countdown!..

LAS MOMIAS DE GUANAJUATO - "The Mummies Of Guanajuato" (1972)

 This Saturday Night Special will be my last Mummy post for a while (Oh, Yeah, there is still more), because now it's time to focus on the Countdown To Halloween!

Tonight's feature is called "Las Momias De Guanajuato" and shouldn't be confused with "El Robo De Las Momias De Guanajuato," or "El Castillo De Las Momias De Guanajuato," which were all made in the early 1970's.

These people are on a tour of a real place called "El Museo de las Momias" or "The Museum Of The Mummies" which is in where else but Guanajuato, Mexico where 59 out of 111 Mummies are on display. Their tour guide is a short gentleman named Jorge Pinguino, or The Penguin!

 The real Mummies of Guanajuatto are a number of naturally mummified bodies caused by a cholera outbreak in 1833.

 The Mummies in the story of this movie are a completely different breed!
The big guy in the middle is a wrestler named Satan, and the whole story revolves around a 100 year old feud between him and Santo!

 Satan is a bad sport and a sore loser, and holds a grudge for a long time!
Satan is played by Manuel Leal, and is supposedly 7' 2" but I doubt it!

 Santo is only in this film for a very limited time. The real stars are two other very popular masked wrestlers, Mil Máscaras and Blue Demon! I read that it pissed off Blue Demon that Santo got the top billing for this movie, while he and Mil did all the work, something he never did get over!

 Satan is now back, and he's got all his other dead Mummy amigos to help him out!

 In this flashback scene, you get a good chance to see what they really looked like!

 These two are definitely good buddies, and Blue Demon drives an MG and Mil Máscaras drives what looks like a dune buggie!

 Just to prove how mean he is, Satan murders the Penguin!

 All Hell breaks out and this is the first of many Mummy Battle Royales!

 You can shoot them, and they don't die, and this Mummy was tossed out a second story window, and still manages to get back up! It's difficult to kill things that are already dead!

 Satan unmasks and strips Blue Demon of his mask and outfit, and gives it to one of his dead fiends so he can kill people and the authorities will think it's Blue Demon who is doing it.

 Although Satan and his gang have plenty of opportunities to kill Blue Demon and Mil Máscaras, they instead choose to kill their friends like Penguin, and gal pals like Patricia (La Venganza De Las Mujeres Vampiro, Santo Contra La Mafia Del Vicio)Ferrer as Alicia!

 Santo finally comes rolling into town just because he needs a place to sleep after his last big match!

 Santo finds the whole town is full of  Mummies, running amok and killing the local townspeople! 
Blue Demon and Mil Máscaras are there too, so there's one last big fight before Santo finally says, "Go get the guns in my car!" (Now we already know bullets can't hurt the Mummies any more than sticks and stones, so what's the deal?

 These guns shoot fire!

 It's pretty difficult to remain a formidable opponent when you are literally toast!
The End comes quick after this!

I've seen better, and I've seen worse, but for the most part, "Las Momias De Guanajuato" is just a silly, stupid, but fun movie, and was interesting enough that I'd watch it again! You know it just feels good to know that there are people out there like Blue Demon, Mil Máscaras, and Santo watching out for all of us!

THE BLUE DEATH STRIKES! / Bruce Tinkel: Monster Kid Home Movies - 1964

So, looks like it's time to check out another Monster Kid Home Movie from those crazy kids with their 8mm Kodak cameras with no sound, back from the past. This one is about a kid that can change from pretty good to evil death dealer with a ghoulish mask... Oh yeah, he wears blue!!

Here's the kid before he changes into... Drum roll please!

Ta da!!.. The freaking Blue Death hisself!!.. Better watch out all you stupid kids!!

Read all about it!.. Read all about it!.. The Blue Death is loose and on the prowl!..

Now, that's what you call cheap-ass!!

Stupid Kid!!

He gots what he deserved!

This one's about four and a half minutes long, so, you can believe that there's plenty of kid tossing for some cheap thrills. I can imagine what all the kids were talking about when they watched it for the first time, I'd bet that they liked these the best, there's quite a few of them!

The Blue Death is out roaming around, looking for unsuspecting victims, but, loses power and faints, when he wakes up, he's just a regular guy! Yet another Jekyll/Hyde character.

Guess what his favorite method of mayhem is, what else, choking them damn kids to death!!

In part 2, yes, there are two parts! Anyway, The Blue Death now has some Halloween hands with claws to help him kill those kids!


Well kiddies, there you have it, a fun one goes into the old Dungeon Vault! I'm hoping Eegah!! has something special for us tomorrow, join us, here, at The Dwrayger Dungeon!! 875 Followers strong!
