Blue Demon vs. the Satanic Power
Blue Demon, real name Alejandro Muñoz Moreno, is a legend of
Lucha Libre, a rival of El Santo. And they should also be rivals in the
world of cinema, considering that the producer Enrique Vergara also
decides to give Blue Demon space on the big screen, with films very
similar in themes and developments to those of the Enmascarado de la
Plata. Instead, for some obvious commercial reason in this 1966 "Blue
Demon contra el poder satánico", directed by Chano Urueta, we
find El Santo in a cameo in which he reassures Blue Demon that he is on
And this is the best thing about a rambling film, a delicious b movie,
which shows off a low budget and artisan tricks that are accompanied
with a simple and crazy screenplay on which the good Fernando
Osés has put his hand.
We are in the early part of the twentieth century and the serial killer
Gustavo is sentenced to death. Gustavo, who has magic powers, falls
into catalepsy hoping to be considered death to escape from the morgue.
Unfortunately, however, he is quickly buried. Fifty years later
(without eating and drinking) some guys, grave thieves, unearth him and
Gustavo starts killing again. They pay the price: a girl, Blue Demon's
cousin, two other women and a singer, more or less all set on fire (I
think) but they are not seen.
Then Blue Demon realizes that something is wrong. Investigate, despite
the police downplay, talked to our El Santo. He discovers something
about the sorcerer and begins his mission for the forces of good,
destroying the villain as if on a canvas. End.
And another film with a lucha libre hero has gone through.
