Santo contra los Zombies (also known as Santo vs. the Zombies) is a 1961 Mexican film directed by Benito Alazraki. It depicts the popular character El Santo in a pulp style film.


After the police are unable to stop a crime wave by zombies, they turn to Santo for help.



This was one of the earliest Santo films and the first to be distributed in the US.[1]


Writing in The Zombie Movie Encyclopedia, academic Peter Dendle said, "The adventure movie with its comic-book plot, hero, and villain is fun to watch in an MST-3K spirit".[2]
