JFD259: Las Vampiras, The Champions of Justice, Santo & Blue Demon vs. Dracula & the Wolfman
RING THE BELL!!! This week on Junk Food Dinner we explore the exciting world of LUCHA LIBRE with three Mexican luchador flicks!
Up first, a very old John Carradine plays an aging vampire with a harem of sexy vampire chicks who are causing mischief all over town, so it's up to the man of a thousand masks, Mil Máscaras to stop them in Las Vampiras from 1969.
Then, it's The Avengers of luchador films as Blue Demon, Mil Máscaras, El Médico Asesino, Tinieblas el Gigante and La Sombra Vengadora all team up to battle a mad scientist who goes by Mano Negra (Black Hand), his sidekick Black Shadow and an army of midget henchmen who have kidnapped all of their beauty queen goddaughters in The Champions of Justice from 1971.
Finally, it's the ultimate lucha libre monster mash as two of the biggest stars in the world of masked wrestling, Santo and Blue Demon join forces to battle two of the biggest stars in the world of horror, Dracula and the Wolf Man, in the cleverly titled Santo & Blue Demon vs. Dracula & the Wolfman.from 1973.
All this plus witty banter between friends, Lucha Underground chat, Record Store Day round-up, luchador masks with suits, luchars on motorcycles, unplanned Wizard-themed vacations, Junk Mail, Trailer-rama 2015, Full House jokes and so much more!
