Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - wam.umd.edu - cinefania.com - citwf.com - scifilm.org: «Santo has to do battle with an evil vampire named Baron Brakola. Brakola? Brakola? Hmm... the name sounds vaguely like that of one of the most famous horror characters of all time. Once you make the connection, you'll know in advance that Santo is battling a vampire this time out before the movie even starts, and, considering that my copy is in unsubtitled Spanish, any hint helps. Nevertheless, I would have been able to figure out he was a vampire from square one, as his pointed teeth and penchant for biting women on the neck gives it away. All in all, this one is fairly easy to understand even in its unsubtitled form, and has an amusing backstory in which one of Santo's ancestors also does battle with Baron Brakola. It's the basic "Dracula" story with Santo in the Van Helsing role, or, if you prefer, imagine Van Helsing as a Mexican wrestler. Hey, here's some scenarios to imagine - a bare-chested Edward Van Sloan in tights, mask, and cape wrestling Bela Lugosi. Or, even better, bare-chested Peter Cushing in mask, tights and cape wrestling with Christopher Lee! Wait a second... I really didn't want to conjure up those visions. Now I WILL have nightmares tonight.».
