UnSilent Film 4: Santo Contra la Hija de Frankenstein

Mexican wrestling is in the air! We just mentioned that Jack Black will star in a forthcoming movie about an in cognito wrestling Mexican priest, and now this:

SynthCleveland presents the 1971 classic Mexican Wrestling/Horror film Santo Contra la Hija de Frankenstein (Santo vs. Frankenstein’s Daughter) featuring a new live improvised soundtrack on Wednesday, May 4 at 8pm, at Rain Nightclub, in Cleveland.

This is the fourth in a series of “UnSilent” films — old movies with an added improvised live score — performed this time by SynthCleveland members tofu, dust_head, fluxmonkey, 20goto10 and inovercy.

Santo (a.k.a. Rodolfo Guzman Huerta), stars as the silver-masked luchador battling Dr. Freda Frankenstein (Gina Roman), resplendent in go-go boots, as she continues in the family line of work, making monsters, while also developing a youth serum. Looking to upgrade the formula, she needs the blood of the eternally young Santo and kidnaps Santo’s girlfriend Norma to be used as bait.

Once lured into Dr. Frankenstein’s lair, Santo must defeat not one, but two monsters: the half-man, half-ape “Truxon,” and fresh off the Doctor’s slab, the familiar looking square headed monster called “Ursus.”

This film is quintessential Santo: allowing the smooth-wrestling crimefighter (who never takes off his mask on-screen) to work his magic with the ladies and the monsters.

I am so there! Carumba.
