Mexican wrestler battles topless vampires in ‘lost’ film

Topless lady vampires and Mexican wrestlers go together like fish and milk, but that’s not stopping the belated release of “El Vampiro el Sexo” more than 40 years after its filming.

El Santo battled clothed women with old-fashioned guns in "Anonymous Death Threat."

According to Reuters, legendary wrestler El Santo (The Saint) is revered by film lovers worldwide for the movies in which he battles mummies, Martians and werewolves.

Soon, the star of such 1940s and 1950s films as “Santo vs. Blue Demons of Atlantis” and “Invasion of the Zombies” will be seen in “The Vampire and the Sex.”

El Santo, aka Rodolfo Guzman, doesn’t shed his familiar wrestling costume, which includes a silver mask and tights, but he does tussle with naked she-vampires, according to Reuters.

The late ’60s film never saw light of day because of concerns it would tarnish The Saint’s halo, if not his wrestling belt.

Movies Worth Seeing is closing, and that’s the only place I know of that would carry such a flick. Good thing I’ve got access to unlimited Being Human episodes.
