Marcos (Marcos Vargas) has just recieved the Santo-powers from his father Santo, and now he can magically turn into masked crimefighter Hijo del Santo whenever need arises - but he keeps this a secret of course, and to the world he remains mild-mannered Marcos, who hates violence. It's not long before Marcos and his sidekick Carlitos (Carlos Suárez) save animal rights activist and all-around good guy Chanoc (Nelson Velázquez) and his sidekick Tzekub (Arturo Cobo) from drowning, and afterwards the four of them hook up to foil the plans of an animal smuggling cartel. They soon zero in on Jean (Jean Safont), one of the heads of the cartel, but then Jean's sister Dolores (Rubi Re) is kidnapped, apparently by his business partners, and she just happens to be the girlfriend of Marcos. Of course, this actually makes it easier for Chanoc and Marcos/Santo to track Jean's businesspartners down to a certain dessert island - where Dolores has already managed to free herself and overpower her kidnappers.

And the killer vampires of the title, you may ask?

They were just a plot by the smugglers, but I have no idea to what end.


Avery cheaply made and shoddily written crime thriller of the masked wrestler variety - that's nevertheless some fun for all the wrong reasons: The writing is so bad it's hilarious, Marcos Vargas' looks and acting are laugh-inducing, the two comic sidekicks are so bad it will make you cry, and the fact that Chanoc also does a few musical numbers is at least worth a chuckle, right?

At least the actual wrestling match that was thrown into the movie for no narrative reason is pretty good and Hijo del Santo proves to be a pretty versatile and also pretty quick fighter.
