to the "SANTO AND FRIENDS" Website!! This page is being designed as a fan
appreciation page to honor Mexican wrestling super-star "SANTO" and other
related "LUCHADORES ENMASCARADOS" who fought their way across the screen in
dozens of great Mexican movies! We will bring you pages of informative articles,
biographies, filmographies, and great photos and movie posters, all relating
to the fabulous films of these famed Mexican wrestling superstars! So come
with us for a trip down Memory Lane to the days when masked men not only wrestled
in the ring, but fought gangsters, werewolves, vampires and killer mummies
as a sideline!
are also expanding this webpage to include an overview of all the Mexican
horror/fantasy and science fiction movies of the past, since so many of these
great films overlapped with "masked wrestler" films and would probably be
of great interest to Santo fans.
large percentage of Mexican horror/sci-fi movies actually involved masked
wrestlers (or superhero-types who in many ways resembled the luchadores enmascarados)
and also involved the same cheesy monsters, aliens, vampires, killer dwarves
and mad doctors who matched their wits (or claws) against the mighty Santo
and his friends.
don't limit your collecting only to Santo, Blue Demon and Mil Mascaras movies...
There's a whole world of weird and wacky Mexican Horror out there just waiting
to be discovered by video buffs!
