Editorial Reviews

"Cinta de horror con un toque de psicodelia siniestra en la cual, un científico, el doctor Fadel (John Carradine), tiene el secreto de revivir a los muertos en sus manos. El momento de probar si tiene el mundo a sus pies sucede cuando Andrés (Víctor Junco), muere por un cáncer degenerativo y su esposa Marlene (Regina Torné) acude desesperada con el doctor Fadel para que lo salve. Al no poder evitar su muerte, promete regresarlo a la vida si Marlene le proporciona un ingrediente vital: la sangre de mujeres jóvenes. En ese momento da inicio un círculo de terror, perversión y sombras, en la cual el amor deriva en la locura y la locura en muertes que ni la policía logra descifrar. Una historia sumamente original, alejada de las tramas tradicionales de terror, en la cuales la atención se centra en las víctimas. En "La señora muerte" la atención es sobre el asesino..."

"La Señora Muerte" (evidently released in English in 1969 as "Madame Death") is a hammy 1967 combination monster movie and detective drama made in Mexico and starring B-movie king John Carradine as (what else?) a mad scientist trying to revive the dead. To get to the movie you have to endure numerous short trailers that cannot be fast forwarded through from films much worse than this one. Then Carradine (starring as Dr. Fadel) comes out to give a stand up lecture about what's about to happen (think it of as Criswell's part in an Ed Wood movie,) and the hokey credits begin to wryly amuse immediately. The plot is set in motion very quickly: Andrés (Victor Junco) dies of cancer, and his wife Marlene (Regina Torné) is willing to do anything to have him back. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and before you know it, Andrés is under a plastic bubble contraption in Carradine's typically hilarious lab, where he stays for the rest of the movie. Carradine and his hunchback assistant (it's a Mexican monster movie: every stereotype must appear to make a holistic whole) Laor (Carlos Ancira) come up with the plan to revivify Andrés: he must make Marlene into a half monster (her face makeup is the scariest effect in the whole movie) who will get the blood of young women by nefarious means. Fadel does this with what appears to be a heat lamp, but never mind, Marlene is now a monster. Sort of. She kills women when the ghostly apparition of John Carradine's disembodied head yells at her (which is a real distraction while driving.)

The film is noteworthy on many levels, and will be enjoyed by any Carradine fan regardless of their Spanish fluency (I had three years of Spanish in high school and college, but am embarrassed about how much I have forgotten.
