Hi gang., Dan Lashley from Wide Weird World of Cult Films here. The hostess with the mostest asked me to write up something for Frankenstein Friday and I said “No problem” This is a tactic most commonly used when one doesn’t want to sleep on the couch.
This movie stars the ever dashing (and ever masked) El Santo, the most popular wrestler to come from Mexico. When Frankenstein’s daughter discovers that Santo’s blood is like super duper awesome, she wants some of it for herself to stay young forever. With her batch of old/young henchmen, some gorillaman, and Frankie’s less desirable cousin Ursus, she kidnaps Santo’s galpal, pissing off Silver masked devil. Back body drops, leg scissors, and good old fashion karate chops galore!
Now since Wednesday’s Child is the wordsmith, I’m sticking to my site’s format and giving you …
Six Things I’ve Learned From Santo Vs Frankenstein’s Daughter
1. Santo may have super blood, but it sure doesn’t help him to have a decent match with El Toro. More like El Stinko.
2. Not a wise idea to have a self destruct lever right next to all the other levers in your laboratory. Just asking for an “oopsie” moment.
3. Say what you want about her, but Frankenstein’s daughter is creating jobs and helping the self esteem of the elderly she hires. What would you rather do…be young for three months and be a henchman, or be old and greet people at supermarkets? I thought so.
4. Injecting a man with any animal blood is stupid. Seriously, what the hell are you hoping to accomplish? “Look at that guy! He can run so damn fast and looks stylish in black and white stripes!” No, you end up with two outcomes…either they die horribly, or they get really ugly, snarl a lot, and most likely throw their own feces. A great day for science indeed.
5. All evil houses must have a basement where you keep old men locked up and shoot em with youth serum that burns. On second thought, that sounds like a retirement home.
6. Dr. Frankenstein was basically a decent, albeit slightly mad person who wanted to create life. His daughter meanwhile just wants to bark orders and make her subjects suffer. What a bitch.
