Weird Scenes 5/26/16: Mexican Horror pt. 1 - Lucha Libre contra Los Monstruos

May 26, 2016

In the second installment of our look into cinema south of the border, we head to sunny Mexico!

One of the most recognizable (and recognizably insane) subgenres of cinema is that of the luchador: featuring well known masked wrestlers facing off against mummies, mad scientists, zombies, vampires, sinister dwarves and more!

Often paired with other notables (and rivals in the ring), tonight we talk the surprisingly lengthy film career of the legendary Enmascarado de Plata (Man in the Silver Mask) El Santo, his longtime foe (but cinema bestie!) Blue Demon, Mil Mascaras, Superzan, Tinieblas and more!
