An evil scientist turns microbes from a moon-rock into large, flesh-hungry blobs in a fiendish world-domination plot. Will the masked wrestler Santo defeat this madman and his lackeys, and shield humanity from blob-snack doom? You bet your sweet ass, he will...

This 1973 release(some sources cite it as being made in 1971) is a mostly par later entry in the Mexican Santo series. If you're already familiar with these films, then you pretty much know what to expect...a distinctly Mexican recipe fusing cheesy, high-camp sci-fi/horror thrills with cheesy, high-camp wrestling-hero action. The pulsating, slowly moving "blobs" are nothing more than guys crawling around under Naugahyde blankets(seriously...this one serves up some of the most ghetto monster effects ever lensed). Amazingly, these beasts dissolve their victims' flesh clear to the bone, yet leave their clothing entirely intact! Preposterous and juvenile twaddle, indeed...but in the right mood, this is a harmless barrel of old-school belly-laughs.
