If you have even a passing interest in the wild world of Mexican Wrestling/Monster movies, you will find hours of enjoyment in this book. Cotter attemtps to cover the roots of the genre, the major players on both sides of the camera, the key films - as well as the lesser-known ones - in an engaging and entertaining manner. Packed with reproductions of posters and lobby cards and brief synopsis of the plots, it collects everything one would want to know about these marvelous movies. The filmography is a blessing for collectors, as it's the only book I've found that covers the subject in-depth and with a sense of appreciation. Other books may mention a couple of poorly dubbed movies with a dismissive snort. Let's face it - these are not cinema classics; but boy are they fun movies for those of us who can't get enough of Santo, Blue Demon and the Wrestling Women. This is THE book for anyone who loves these movies and the folks who made them. You will not be disappointed.

I am probably the only person in Western Pennsylvania who has a collection of this stuff who doesn't speak Spanish. This book is a must for any fan.

Great book. Lists the Mexican monster movies and Mexican masked wrestler movies that are such goofy fun. Goes into each film so even if one doesn't understand Spanish one can still know what's going on. Recommended.
