I havdn't seen this movie for about 30 years.

This long neglected film gets a very good blu-ray treatment from VCI. It's in Spanish with English subtitles, and it's a peach of a film.

The films opens in a dark graveyard as a body stealer rises out of the grave with a covered corpse. This really sets the tone for everything that follows.

A mad scientist is using pro wrestlers in his brain transplant experiments. He wants to replace the human brain with an animal brain so they can live longer. Wow..that's priceless right there.

Enter a young man from the country named Guillermo (Wolf Ruvinskis) who comes to the city to become a wrestling star. His best friend is a detective working on the case of several murders in the wrestling business.

The mad doc manages to get his hands on Guillermo and the operation works. It transforms him into a monster that obeys the first. During a wrestling match Guillermo goes crazy and starts killing people in the crowd in a wild scene that has to be seen to be believed.

While on his rampage he impales the mad doctor and slowly changes into a hideous ape-like monster thatn reminded me of the film "Half Human". The end of the film is a kicker as well.

This is great stuff. A good 50's monster movie out of Mexico that finally can be seen by fans in a beautiful transfer. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for horror fans everywhere.
