title DR SATAN
director: Miguel Morayta
starring: Joaquin Cordero · Alma Delia Fuentes · Jose
Galvez · Judith Azcarraga · Gina Romano
officer Meteos and his assistant agent Nora are in charge of stopping
a gang of European counterfeiters, flooding Mexico with bogus dollars.
Dr Arozamen (aka Dr Satan) and his gang of zombies are behind
the deadly ordeal. Seemingly, the doctor has made a pact with Lucifer
that allows him to resurrect the dead in exchange for legions of new
converts to the dark side. Officer Meteos tries his best to stop Arozamen
but it's really Nora who goes into the 'belly of the beast' to challenge
the evil doctor and ends up risking her own soul in the process.
Joaquin Cordero plays Dr Satan with reserved conceit,
in a film that never slips into camp or silliness despite the wacky
plot. Two years later he would reprise the role for the equally eccentric
SATAN VS BLACK MAGIC. Joaquin was one of Mexico's top performers,
appearing in 200+ projects between 1949 and his death (from respiratory
failure) in February 2013 at age 89. He is probably best known for the
role in Carlos Enrique Taboada's horror masterpieceBOOK
OF STONE and then later for THE
VACATION OF TERROR.
Director Miguel Morayta also died in 2013 (at the
grand age 105). He put his indelible make on Mexican cinema with two
classic motion pictures, THE
BLOODY VAMPIRE and its legendary sequel INVASION
OF THE VAMPIRES.
