Continues His Ordeal with the Vampire Women
Mexican, Spanish Title: SANTO EN LA VENGANZA DE LAS MUJERES VAMPIRO
[Santo in the Vengeance of the Women Vampires]
also known as SANTO IN THE VENGEANCE OF THE FEMALE VAMPIRES
starring: Santo · Norma Lazareno · Gina Romand · Aldo Monti · Patricia
Ferrer · Víctor Junco
Igor Brancov, a mad scientist with a yearning for world domination [conducting
his mania from a very cool laboratory], revives a 200 year old female
vampire named Countess Mayra. Dr Brancov anticipates a criminal partnership
with the vampire, but she has aspirations of her own. Namely, a family
grudge against perennial superhero (and vampire fighter) Santo. The
scientist realizes he needs more recruits for his evil plan, so he sends
his assistants to the local Go-Go Club to kidnap strippers for vampire
transfusions. But, fortunately, local cops patronize the club and start
investigating when they discover they favorite dancers have been abducted.
When things get complicated, Santo is enlisted to help.
eight years after the breakout hit SANTO
VS THE VAMPIRES WOMEN, this one wasn't exactly a sequel nor
a remake. Rather, it's considered a re-imagining of the original
Santo tale. Here is one of 50+ movies starring Santo before his retirement
in 1982. For 50 years, this wrestling hero had never been seen nor photographed
without his mask, but in January 1984, he - without warning - unmasked
himself on the Mexican television program Contrapunto.
Less than two weeks later, he died from a heart attack at age 66.. He
was survived by his wife Eva Vadager and eleven children.
