A weird series of murders is puzzling police inspector Ponce (Armando Silvestre), as neither or the murder victims is robbed, they seem to have absolutely no connection to one another, neither has an enemy in the world - but before their demises they have all reveived identical anonymous death threats. When Mario Gaos (Xavier Massé) receives such a threat, he figures he is beyond the police's help and instead calls upon his friend, superstar wrestler and crimefighter Santo for help, who sends over his helpers Yvette (Tere Velázquez) and Pablo (Gregorio Casal) for protection, but even they can't save Gaos from being blown to smithereens. Santo soon finds out that Gaos has slowly been poisoned by his wife Ester (Sasha Montenegro) over the years, but he decides to let her get away with it.

Soon, the police is called to another victim-to-be of the killer, Henkel (Jorge Rado), who has just survived an assassination attempt. From Henkel, Santo eventually learns that all those killed were witnesses in a war criminal trial against Nazi villain von Struber - and yet, Santo can't bring himself to fully trust Henkel.

As much is true though, a Nazi organisation is really behind the murders, and they want to get rid of Santo, too - but fail to shoot him in the ring during a match, accidently hitting his adversary called, of all things, El Nazi.

Now the Nazis are after Fournier (Joaquin Bauche), besides Henkel the last man standing on the von Struber-trial witness list, but Santo and friends are quicker. Nevertheless, Yvette is soon captured, then used to lure Santo into a trap, and Pedro and Fournier just do the Nazis a favour and walk into a trap not even set up yet, too. Our heroes all land in the gas chamber the Nazis have set up especially for them, and now their leaders are revealed: Henkel, who is actually von Struber, having assumed his enemy's identity, and Gaos' wife Ester, actually von Struber's daughter. Of course they want revenge, and it seems they are going to get it ... but Santo manages to free himself and his friends, and they give the Nazis a good shakedown. And in a macabre case of poetic justice, von Struber dies in his own gas chambre in the end.


What sounds like a fun movie of Santo fighting Nazis is actually an elaborate and convoluted whodunnit with Santo thrown into the mix but not really fitting the story. And unfortunately, the whole thing isn't too well-written, either, several revelations come way too soon to keep the tension, Santo and friends often seem to find out the same thing twice or thrice, and the film contains quite a few plotholes, too.

That's not to say the film is a total trainwreck, there are quite a few funny moments at least, but it's by no means one of the better Santo-films.
