Evil Doctor Sanders has found a way to keep brains not only alive after removing them from their bodies, but has also developed a machine that enables him to communicate with these brains and extract all their scientific knowledge. To this end, he has kidnapped several prominent scientists. He steals their brains, then provides them with other brains of persons of lesser knowledge, and sees to it that the scientists's bodies die in accidents soon. This way he figures he will never be spotted.

Why does he do it?

Because a foreign nation with a big checkbook, represented by Dr Cadar is willing to pay big money. Dr Cadar is especially fascinated by Sanders' security chief Kathia, a woman who's as charming as she's cunning, as seductive as she's cruel. And she heads the army of zombies, or robots, as Sanders prefers to call them, with three sexy and very stylish robot girls being her personal entourage.

Of course, Sanders' plan isn't without a hitch, because before death, these scientists with their new brains tend to behave oddly (and not very scientist-like anymore, for obvious reasons), and after death, their bodies crumble to dust within hours. This has alerted the local secret service, represented by special agent Reyes and his always jealous assistant Martha. In times of need, they are assisted by masked championship wrestler Blue Demon, who in this film has the ability to appear out of and disappear into thin air if need be. For the longest time, Reyes, Martha and Blue Demon try to track Sanders' organisation down but seem to only move in circles, while more and more scientists disappear, despite our heroes' best efforts. Then they come up with the plan to disguise Reyes as a scientist and equip him with a radio transmitter, then let Kathia and her robot girls kidnap him.

Sanders and company only realize they have been duped when Reyes is already strapped to the operating table and readied to be lobotomized, but then Blue Demon and Martha already interfere, smash the place to bits and pieces, free Reyes, and manage to just get away before Sanders' hideout with all the baddies in it self-destructs ...

 

Now I won't lie to you, this film is simplistic and childish to the t, full of plotholes, scientific nonsense and the like, and don't get me started about story structure, actors, special effects ...

But at the same time, Blue Demon contra Cerebros Infernales is also an underrated gem of high camp. The outrageous late-1960's outfits Martha, Kathia and her robot girls wear are almost worth the price of admission on their own (even or especially if you don't care much about fashion), especially when contrasted with Reyes' classic flatfoot outfit (including the obligatory old and crumpled hat) and Blue Demon's mask and cape, then there are the wonderful cheapish cardboard sets in all colours of the rainbow that are to represent Sanders' lab, and finally the cheapish special effects - especially the talking brains in labelled jars on a kitchen table are a hoot.

So no, this is not a good movie, but for friends of unintentional humour it's the perfect party movie just because of that!
