A direct sequel to the same year's El Puno de la Muerte/The Fist of Death:

The Jungle Girl (Sandra Duarte), who is somehow linked to the Almighty Star, is to marry Prince Ching-Ka (Steve Cheng), which would dininish evil Queria's (Grace Renat) control over the Almighty Star. The wedding is to take place at Raguri's (César Sobrevals) palace in the middle of the jungle, where he lives with Queria's benign twin sister Kungyan (also Grace Renat). Santo and his sidekick Cliff (Carlos Suárez) by the way are also invited. Then a scientist (René Cardona) and his daughter show up for no particular reason, and before you know it, Queria has brought Santo under her hypnotic control and he kidnaps the scientist's daughter. Thing is, he was to kikdnap the Jungle Girl but confused the two because both are blond, so Queria sends him back to correct his mistake, but then her hypnotic spell over him breaks and he returns to Queria's temple to free the girl.

Queria has not run out of ideas yet, next she kidnaps Prince Tegal (Edgardo Gazcón), who is to attend the wedding, and sends a body double in his place, then knocks her sister Kungyan out and takes her place at Raguri's palace. At night, she talks the Jungle Girl into not marrying Prince Ching-Ka but Prince Tegal, then takes her to her temple to sacrifice her - but Santo and friends arrive just in time to fight and defeat her and her gang, including evil wrestler Tinieblas and a weird gorilla-man-hybridw ho looks like another wrestler with a bit of hair glued onto his body.


The very last film starring Santo is a sad affair in some parts, a fun affair in others. On one hand, the film was shot on a very low budget, and it shows, there is little actual karate involved despite the title, plus, the script seems to have been written in a rush, as it lacks build-up on one hand and fails to make proper sense on the other.

That said, the film is also full of pulp mainstays that are presented in a charmingly innocent manner, many of its shortcomings are hilarious - granted, for all the wrong reasons, but hilarious still - and nobody (well at least no heterosexual man) will easily forget the performance of Grace Renat, who spends most of the time wearing inventive and revealing bikinis and dancing seductively for no apparent reason. And she has quite the build (read big tits) to do so.
