Also known as The Moon Child, El Niño de la Luna stars Enrique Saldana as a peculiarly gifted young boy. The youngster's supernatural skills bring him to the attention of a group of occult researchers. Whisked away to a research center, the boy is held prisoner while the scientists scheme to harness his talents for their own purposes. Saldana manages to escape with two other "moon children" and head to Africa, with their captors in hot, potentially homicidal pursuit. Director Agustin Villaronga doubled as screenwriter for El Nino de la Luna.
