SANTO VS. DOCTOR DEATH has been hailed by many (including Santo himself) as not only one of the best Santo films, but one of the best of the "Lucha libre" genre that was popular during the 60s and 70s. One of the few Mexican-Spanish co-productions in the Santo filmography, this entry benefits not only from a slicker production but also from tightly choreographed fight scenes lead by director Rafael Romero Marchent (Sartana Kills Them All) and the addition of Euro actors Mirta Miller (Count Dracula's Great Love), Helga Liné (My Dear Killer), and Carlos Romero Marchent (Cut-Throats Nine) give this film more of a Eurocentric vibe than many of the other offerings in the Santo series. Vinegar Syndrome Archive is proud to present our first Santo film, scanned and restored in 2K from its 35mm original camera negative and for the first time since its initial release, presented in its intended widescreen aspect ratio.
