Day Three!

This is the first of this Morbido Crypt Mexican Genre series they programmed for the fest. This one is pure late 50s sci-fi with some humor and monsters and romance and musical thrown in for good measure. The Morbido Crypt guy introducing the film mentioned that many films of this era had so many genres packed into them in an effort to give something to each member of the family going to see it. This is something that I've heard to describe Bollywood cinema (and tend to agree with) so it's interesting to see another country take on the same strategy. Of course, this is like half as long as a Bollywood movie so maybe Mexicans aren't as patient as Indians I dunno.

Anyway, this was really fun and actually funny. The monster designs, while very cheap, are still endearing. This is a great Sunday Matinee type movie, or Saturday as the case might be.
