Since New Jersey is overrun by the new Ninja Drug, the chief of police sees no alternative to call on the help of masked Mexican wrestler El Intoxico, who soon enough takes ninjas out left and right - but the strain of fighting ninjas gets too much for him and he soon starts not only boozing (hence his name) but also snorting coke and becomes more and more unreliable - which is why the police chief's second in command (and lover) Johnny Apeman takes the fight into his own hands ... and is killed. The chief of police then hires Caifano to help him get El Intoxico back on his own two feet and pick up the fight again, and with the help of Caifano, the wrestler takes out a great many ninjas ... but ultimately, Chairman Leeroy Brown, the man behind the Ninja Drug, calls upon the evil ninja god, who sends him a fighter from hell to take out El Intoxico ...

 

The lucha libre genre, done the Andre Perkowski way, which means an abundance of often hilarious stock footage, an intentionally meandering storyline, inherent madness, wand quite a bit of satire woven into the proceedings. And to a point, El Intoxico is nothing short of hilarious, e.g. when the Intoxico mask (and character) is deliberately and obviously changed from one actor to another, when the effects of the ninja drug are explained by excerpts from a ninja movie, or the many scenes which show Intoxico drinking (hence his name) ... yet, El Intoxico is not one of Perkowski's better films, in several scenes it's just too obvious that this was not originally intended as a feature film but ws just a few non-actor and non-stuntmen friends having fun with a camera, a wrestling mask and ninja-outfits.

Still, despite the film's occasional shortcomings, Perkowski did manage to turn the footage that he did get from fooling around with his friends into a weird and quite unique piece of film with a triplike quality to it that has to be seen to be believed. And the weird soundtrack by Farmingdale Sound Machine is actually almost amazing.
