The country's top scientists are murdered under extremely mysterious circumstances, and a villain called Malkosh (Carlos Agostí) blackmails the gouvernment into paying him 10 million Dollars in gold - but investigating inspector O'Connor (Marco Antonio Campos) has the good sense of sending masked wrestler Santo (Santo) along to the pick-up, where he takes out all of Malkosh's goons before Malkosh manages to overcome him ... but instead of killing Santo, Malko lets him wrestle two Roman gladiators and then a guy with a flamethrower, all of whom he conjures out of thin air. Of course Santo remains victorious in all three fights, and the guy with the flamethrower even comes in handy when making Malkosh's personal guards shoot one another and wound Malkosh lethally. With his dying breath, Malkosh makes a sort-of confession: The businessmen weren't killed by anything earthly but by a blob created by moonstone that came in contact with the atmosphere. In the whole world, there is one scientist who knows the secrets of moonstone, Dr Bernstein (Carlos Suárez), but he has been kidnapped by Malkosh's ally turned rival Licur (Juan Gallardo). Eventually, Malkosh is killed by his own creation, the blob, but to destroy the blob, which before long will pose a huge threat to humankind, Santo has to free Dr Bernstein, and the only way to find him is through his daughter Karen (Sasha Montenegro) ... who's soon kidnapped by Licur's goons though because Bernstein refuses to tell Licur how to control the blob - but with a little persuasion from his daughter ...

Santo is quick to find Licur's hideout, and though it's heavily guarded, eventually all the guards are absorbed by the blob, eventually even Licur himself, only Santo, Dr Bernstein and Karen are able to escape - with the blob in hot pursuit, and against all expectations, Dr Bernstein has no idea of how to stop it. But hey, Santo's genius as a professional wrestler ultimately has a solution for this, why not lure the blob into a cave full of poisoned gasses, find an underground lake with an underwater connection to the outside, and blow up the cave with the blob in it while escape via the lake. All so obvious, right?

 

Ok, the most obvious thing about the film: The blob looks nothing like it's supposed to be, it looks like several extras walking under a dirty rug - which is exactly what the blob is, too. Heck, you can even see some holes in the rug for the guys and girls to know where they're going. This of course takes all the excitement out of the blog murders, and makes the blob chase scenes rather ridiculous. But hey, Santo films are best not judged by their (mostly sloppy) special effects but by the fun they are (intentional or unintentional) - and this one's pretty funny. It's decently paced, with quite a few fights and chases, it's full of pulp mainstays, it's campy, at times goofy, the props and special effects are of a lovably retro style (even for the 1970s), and while it was quite obviously not made for laughs, there are beyond plenty in this one.

So don't expect this for decent genre entertainment, but see it as great fun!
