There is an evil gang in town, led by beautiful Cadena yet ruthless (Regina Torné), and they commit crimes of all sorts and sizes, but actually Cadena has two goals, to spring her boyfriend Rocco, and to have revenge on championship wrestler Mil Mascaras, who has placed Rocco in jail in the first place. Mil Mascaras and his friends though soon get wise to Cadena's gang, and they decide to place one of Mil Masscaras' friends, Estrella, in Cadena's gang undercover - which is for some reason includes a strange ritual.

It's not long before Cadena manages to spring Rocco along with his cellmate Hook, and disguised as the Black Hood, Rocco soon challenges Mil Mascaras to a match in the wrestling arena. But right during the match, one of Cadena's girls gives Mil Mascaras the kiss of death - achieved by poisoned lips -, which almost kills Mil Mascaras, and the match is postponed because of that.

Once recuperated, Mil Mascaras attacks Cadena's gang's hideout with some of his friends, but they are outmanned and eventually have to retreat. Now Cadena knows it was Estrella who has betrayed them, and she tortures her and threatens to drop her into a vat of acid - and what is Mil Mascaras doing?

He is having his rematch with Rocco in the guise of Black Hook. But without Cadena (and her dirty tricks) on his side, he is no match for Mil Mascaras and eventually flees the arena - with Mil Mascaras and friends in pursuit.

For having lost to Mil Mascaras, Rocco falls out of favour with Cadena, so she has no reservations when Hook kills him. Then though Mil Mascaras and gang arrive and lay waste to her hideout. Estrella is saved from the vat of acid, but Hook is accidently electrocuted during the fight. Cadena and her gang are arrested, and justice is served ...

 


Campy fun! That's probably what describes this movie best. I mean let's be honest, if there's a masked wrestler fighting crime in a movie, you don't expect a great story, excellent dialogue, unique characters or any such stuff. You expect a colourful hero (and there's noone more colourful than the perpetually mask-changing Mil Mascaras), a good villain (and Regina Torné hamming it up as the head bitch is a sight to behold), lots of action inside and outside of the ring, maybe some S/M undercurrents (like a torture dungeon with an acid vat), borderline-hilarious vintage outfits and cheap pseudo-pop art sets and props, and all drenched in comicbook-like colours. And that's exactly what you get with Infernal Angels. And that's exactly what makes it campy fun!
