Reception[edit]

Influence[edit]

The film was featured in the season 6 finale of Mystery Science Theater 3000. It was Frank Conniff's final show before his departure, aside from a brief cameo in the season 10 episode Soultaker. Before his departure, he was a writer and actor for the show, playing TV's Frank, as well as the person in charge of selecting the movies to be mocked. It has been noted that the film was chosen due to Conniff's fondess for Mexican wrestler movies.
