It's become sort of a Halloween tradition that at least one of the Spanish channels show a classic masked wrestler flick to celebrate the holiday.  This one is a weird choice because there aren't any monsters in it and it's not spooky at all but I guess since Blue Demon wears a mask it counts.  These lucha libre movies are all pretty much the same as far as plot goes.  There's some bad guys doing bad things until our hero figures some shit out and fucks up the evil bastards.  They're Mexico's answer to the kung-fu flick in their simplicity but where they top the typical kung-fu flick is in the style and kitsch department.  In this one the Demon takes on a weird shadowy baddy who likes to whittle wood for some unexplained reason and whose face we don't see until the big final showdown.  He also takes on an evil Blue Demon doppleganger who likes to put women in choke-holds.  Some of the sets look awesomely fake with Demon's view of the city looking particularly cardboard-like.  These movies were childhood favorites that still never fail to entertain me and they must have made a million of them because I keep finding ones I've never seen.

Some inspirational tunes!:
