From the Back Cover

After facing defeat at the hands of Cristaldi the magician, Dracula is back to seek revenge and rule the world. With the help of Wolfman and his legion of followers, victory seems eminent. Professor Cristaldi, a descendant of the magician, is warned about Dracula's plans and calls upon El Santo and Blue Demon in the hopes that they can put the infamous Count and the werewolf down for good.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new Santo fan responds November 24, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I'm a new Santo fan, having discovered these films through the Rise Above DVDs, which are very well done. Of the 5 films that I've seen so far, I would rank this one number 1 or 2. Of course, you have to have a taste for this kind of thing. But I find El Santo one of the most endearing "monster-fighters" I've ever come across. Yes, these films all have the flaws of many other 70s films (Mexican or otherwise)and the plots are repetitive. But they've got heart, which is not something I cannot say of similar Hammer products of the same period. And El Santo is absolutely the coolest superhero to ever come out of Mexico.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Four hundred years ago, Count Dracula and the Wolf Man attempted to unite the powers of Darkness but were foiled by one man, the alchemist Elco Cristaldi. Today, at the end of the cabalistic time, Dracula has risen anew and he turns his vengeful eye on Cristaldi's descendants. Except that one of them, the lovely Lina Cristaldi, happens to be El Santo's girlfriend. Sucks for Dracula.

In Mexico, professional wrestlers (or "luchadores") enjoy near mythic heights of popularity, and no one is more revered or celebrated than El Santo. Santo inhabits a special place in Mexican cinema, his more than fifty films an extension of his real life professional wrestling career. Lucha Libre is a realm in which the luchadores are nearly regarded as real life superheroes. And so it wasn't really a stretch for Santo to cross over into motion picture as a caped crime-fighter. And he never, never ever took his silver mask off. What helped to sell Santo was that he always exuded a quiet nobility. He seemed so trustworthy and solid and heroic. This translated to box office cha-ching.

In cinema the decades would see Santo come face to face with all manner of threats, ranging from spies to robots to aliens to supernatural beasties and ghoulies. DVDs of Santo's films are notoriously hard to come by, especially with English sub-titles. SANTO Y BLUE DEMON CONTRA DRACULA Y EL HOMBRE LOBO (or "Santo & Blue Demon Versus Dracula & the Wolf Man") is another surreal Santo adventure, released back in 1973. I say "surreal" because Santo's films never strived too hard to place our hero in the real world. Or in a grounded story, for that matter. It's okay. Santo's world is one in which the man never takes his mask off and no one says diddly.

3.0 out of 5 stars MEXILUCHAHERO TAG-TEAM ACTION February 6, 2010
Format:DVD
There are fans of the mexiluchahero film genre who consider this to be the last classic film to star Santo and Blue Demon together as a crimefighting, south of the border dynamic duo.In it they team up to wrestle the principalities and powers of darkness represented by Count Dracula and el Hombre Lobo(the Wolfman).Once again el Santo has to fight a centuries old curse.This time however he realizes he can't get the job done alone and calls in back-up in the form of the Blue Demon.This was one of the few films from the series where Blue Demon was treated as an equal partner to the Man in the Silver Mask and not just as some sort of sidekick.The story has Dracula planning to enslave humankind using an army of werewolves and vampires.El Santo has a cute little girl friend in this flick who likes to wear really short skirts and whose family are the victims of Dracula's vengeance.The undead Count is portrayed by Aldo Monti who had previously essayed the role in the film Santo and the Treasure of Dracula.Augustin Martinez Solares plays his sidekick Rufus Rex,the Wolfman.Unlike Lon Chaney Jr. or Matt Willis this wolfman is no tortured soul.In his human form he wears outfits that look like they came from Tom Jones stage wardrobe,and he seduces the heroine's sister.The film's big weak spot, to me at least, are the three luchador matches found within.Both Santo and Blue Demon have a singles match and at the end of the film there's a tag-team bout.But all three bouts are done sans audience.It's as if the producers of this film couldn't afford to film in an actual arena and just decided to use a ring and dub in crowd noises.The effect is unsettling and brings down the rest of the film.Perhaps they should have just used stock footage of some previous matches.
