The Film Detective

¡Ai Caramba!  It’s the best movie ever made about a killer Spanish Conquistador from beyond the grave!  This is probably the most satisfying of Richard Cunha’s monster romps despite being rudimentary in all respects. The script is dire and the monster just a generic bogeyman, but the actors are pleasant and the locations attractive. The filmmakers had the last laugh anyway, as the plain-wrap show garnered a nationwide theatrical release. The Film Detective has wisely brought on Tom Weaver to front the extras, as he had the picture fully documented years ago. On Blu-ray from The Film Detective.
