When masked wrestler El Santo is hired by private eye Jaime Pons (Federico Falcón) to go on a werewolf hunt, he thinks very little of it ... until later that day, he is attacked by a wolfpack, and scarcely makes it out alive. When he wants to hook up with Jaime Pons afterwards, he is already dead, killed by a wolf.

Santo hooks up with Pons' employer Cesar Harker (Rodolfo de Anda), who tells him about the werewolves (or lycanthropes, as they are called in this film) who want to take over the world - and kill Harker and his family, the only ones immune to the werewolf's bite, and therefore natural werewolf hunters. And Harker had Pons turn to Santo because of Santo's silver mask, which might help against the werewolves, as thea are allergic to silver.

Before Santo can do anything much though, Cesar is killed, but his brother Erik (also Rodolfo de Anda) steps in to fight on Santo's side - as does a bald gipsy (Carlos Suárez), while doctor Marcus (Carlos Jordán), the local physician, does everything to convince the others that werewolves are nothing but peasants' superstition, against his better knowledge - until Santo and friends find out he himself is a werewolf, but he tries to suppress his lycanthropic urges and poses no threat to the others ... contrary to his sister Julieta (Emilia Carranza), who is eventually revealed the queen of the werewolves.

However, eventually, Santo and friends find out they can only end the werewolves' threat by killing Licar, the king of the werewolves, at the next red moon, which is only days away, while the werewolves become more dangerous, more daring and more sophisticated by the hour ... good thing then that Licar has just arrived in a box from Transylvania, and after a long battle against him and his werewolf-army, Santo manages to throw Licar from some cliffs to his death and this way end the werewolves' reign of the region.

 

First of all, what's bad about this film: The story is way too complex and features way too many too similar characters to really follow the goings-on properly, the effects are sub-par and the titular she-wolves look ridiculous, pretty much like bearded ladies in fur bikinis.

Yet, Santo vs the She-Wolves is not a bad film as such - of course, it's trashy as can be, but it's also pretty well-paced, features a huge amount of action and does indeed manage to build up some atmosphere. And the werewolves, despite their ludicrous makeup, do seem genuinely threatening thanks mainly to their large numbers.

In all, Santo vs the She-Wolves is quite certainly no great horror film, but a nice and cheap little shocker that delivers its goods and keeps one entertained throughout - provided of course one can accept the movie's shortcomings.
