We hate to shatter an illusion, but we must note that the world does know the name of mysterious masked Mexican wrestler Santo. It was Rodolfo Guzman Huerta, and he was 41 years old when he appeared in Invasion of the Zombies. But age had not withered Santo, nor his ability to lay waste to any and all foes. For zombies, the villains are remarkably alert and light on their feet, and pretty good wrestlers to boot. Once again, Santo makes the world safe for other Mexican wrestling films starring the likes of Neutron and the Blue Demon.
