Somebody is flooding the market with counterfeit money, and when police inspector Mateos (José Gálvez) tries to figure out he runs into pretty much indestructible men - zombies, as his doctor of choice, Arozamena (Joaquín Cordero), confirms. Doctor Arozamena however has every reason to know they are zombies, as he created them to guard his counterfeiting operation - which also has a very nice face with Luisa (Gina Romand), a very attractive blonde who just knows how to keep up appearances. However, inspector Mateos grows mighty suspicious regarding the good doctor over time, and so does the doctor's own innocent secretary Elsa (Judith Ruiz Azcarraga), who eventually gets in touch with the inspector's assistant Nora (Alma Delia Fuentes) to hand over key evidence ... but of course, the girls walk into a trap and are captured by the doctor - which ultimately turns against the doctor though, because the two women had a tracker on them that brings the police to the doctor's lair, and ultimately get him behind bars. And Luisa, you might wonder - faced with the choice to either rot away in jail or betray the man she loves, she ultimately poisons herself ...


Doctor Satán might sound pretty cool regarding its outline - but as a whole, the film's actually pretty routine stuff, a slightly clumsily put together blend of gangster and horror cinema, with elements of either genre not always used to full effect. And the film's at best functional directorial effort seems to mirror just that. That said, if you like me love Mexican genre cinema from the 1960s, you WILL find plenty to like about this one - but at the same time, don't expect it to be the greatest movie ever ...
