Some jungle, somewhere: Raguri (César Sobrevals) and his consort Kungyan (Grace Renat) are guardians of the Almighty Star, a crystal that has magic powers, healing powers, ... you name it, it has got it. Anyways, the Almighty Star is so powerful it would be a dangerous weapon if it fell into the hands of someone evil - and here's the catch, because Kungyan's twin sister Queria (also Grace Renat) is pretty evil, and she wants to use the Almighty Star for her own evil ends, and thus sends out her masked wrestler sidekick Tinieblas to get it for her ... and he succeeds, too.

There is a way though to keep Queria from causing havoc: Raguri and Kungyan have to marry their ward, the Jungle Girl (Sandra Duarte), who was sent to them by the Almighty Star, to High Priest Ching-Ka (Steve Cheng). Of course, Queria knows this, and with the help of Tinieblas and the magic powers granted to her by the Almighty Star she abducts the girl to sacrifice her. But somehow, masked wrestler Santo is called into the story telepathically, and he sets a few wrongs right to lead everything to a happy end. Only Queria and Tinieblas manage to escape to return in the sequel, Fury of the Karate Killers ...


There is no way The Fist of Death can be called a good movie, not even adequate by Santo-movie standards - and yet it's the perfect party movie: It's script is as simplistic as it is messed up, sets and costumes are as cheap as they are campy, the fight scenes (including some karate) are sub-par but hilarious, the special effects are laugh-inducingly basic, and Santo (already past 60 when this was made) is visibly past his prime. And then there's the heaving bossom of Grace Renat htat's squeezed into creative bikinis several sizes too small, and in some of her dance scenes, the pure fact that her tits don't pop out of her bra defies at least 3 law of nature.

To put it another way, don't expect a cinematic revelation of any kind, but grab a few mates and a few beers and just have fun!
