BATWOMAN:After the body of a professional wrestler is found off Acapulco's coastline, the victim, by all appearances, is believed to have drowned. However, the autopsy reveals a very perplexing and disturbing prognosis, when it's discovered the victim's pineal gland has been surgically drained of all fluid. With this prognosis eerily imitating the findings in the autopsies of murdered victims in Hong Kong and Macao, the police turn the investigation over to Mario Roble, who enlists the help of a beautiful crime fighting luchador known as Batwoman. Their thorough investigation leads them to an evil neurosurgeon who is using the fluid in his endeavors to genetically engineer a half fish, half man hybrid.
THE PANTHER WOMEN:In an effort to resurrect the dead leader of their satanic cult, the Panther Women must perform blood sacrifices in order for him to arise from his cold grave. Using the wrestling ring as their sepulcher and their unsuspecting opponents as their blood sacrifice's, these beautiful sirens of Satan perform their life-resurrecting rituals, shedding much innocent blood. However, the accomplishment of their goal is thwarted, after Captain Diaz becomes wise to their evil dealings and quest!
- Batwoman is a fascinating unofficial addition to the 1960’s iteration of the Batman franchise.
- Director Rene Cardonaa, was later known for his luchador (masked wrestler) adventure movies such as Santo vs. the Riders of Terror (1970) and Night of the Bloody Apes (1969).
Rene Cardona competently directs [Batwoman] an interesting hybrid of science-fiction and adventure, with elements of lucha libre thrown in to appease fanatics of Mexico's most famous masked luchadors like Santo or the Blue Demon...and it's a damn enjoyable movie because of this 'everything but the kitchen sink' approach!
—Ken Wynne, Attack from Planet B
One of the greatest joys of searching out rare and foreign (and particularly Mexican) SF films is finding those films so totally ludicrous and bizarre that no Hollywood film executive in his right mind would ever have dreamed of giving it the greenlight.
