Mexican vampire movies can be great fun and this one had an advantage being, also, part of the rare breed of Western vampire movies. It was a shame, therefore, that it was a bit flat, however, as we will see it had some of the greatest comedy fangs in any vampire movie.
It starts in a saloon bar. A drunken gunman known as the Rapid is mouthing off and none of the customers dare say anything against him. Salvation comes when a gunman in black enters the bar and calls the Rapid a filthy animal. He is the Rio Kid (Fernando Luján) and he is happy to kill murderers. After he leaves, one old boy says it is years since he’s seen him, he is older than he looks, but he is always fast.
