OK Santo horror/action adventure. Santo invents a time machine and sends his girlfriend back to the past to find out about some treasure and to be menaced by Dracula. When she returns she brings the menace with her. A bad guy in a black hood with a bunch of henchmen lurks in the background so he can get the inside scoop on the treasure. Santo's sidekick is so nerdy, geeky and goofy one would think he alone would louse up Santo. Not the best Santo movie, but then none of them is Academy Award material. I think this film was originally in color, but apparently the only prints available are in black-and-white. Hopefully a good quality color version will be released soon.

I really enjoyed this Santo flick. There's just something about it that makes it one of the most fun Santo films I've seen to date. I remember seeing a couple of the old dubbed "Samson" cheesefests on TV back in the 60's, but other than those, I'm relatively new to the genre.

First off, according to all sources, this film was shot in color. This copy from Rise Above is in B&W, but it doesn't seem to detract from the enjoyment. In fact, most of my favorite Santo films are the older B&W ones, so in a way, I feel the non-color aspect serves to enhance SANTO AND THE TREASURE OF DRACULA. Also, the "sleaze" factor of a reported adult version of the film (with naked vampire babes!) is indeed missing from this edition. I for one am glad. I certainly have no objection to sleaze, but there's something about the steadfast Good vs. Evil innocence of a Santo film that should not be tainted by such things.

In this one, we learn that in addition to all his other accomplishments (pro wrestler extraordinaire, amateur crime fighter and sleuth, the idol of millions), Santo is also a scientist and inventor (The guy is like the South of the Border equivalent of Buckaroo Banzai). He's invented a time machine, of all things, and of course this invention is the catalyst for the entire adventure that follows. Santo also has several non-wrestling friends assisting him this time around, including a likeable buffoon who serves as comic relief, and a foil for Santo's one-liners(!)and physical abuse. At times, this played almost like a toned down 3 Stooges film!

The lone wrestling match included about midway through is actually worked into the plot of the movie (in a very contrived way).
