VCI Entertainment announced this past week that director René Cardona’s 1969 Eastmancolor sci-fi thriller, La Luchadoras vs El Robot Asesino, will be available on DVD this coming Oct. 14.
A mad scientist, Dr. Orlak (Carlos Agostí), with a penchant for kidnapping and extortion, develops a mechanical man/robot (with fiendish strength) to carry out his diabolical plans. As it turns out, his plans are far more complex than your run-of-the-mill extortionist … this is about world domination!
The authorities seem helpless to stop his reign of terror, but there is one who will not back down and she is dressed in spandex and every bit a super hero as Batman! She’s Gaby (Regina Torné), a female wrestler, who goes after Dr. Orlak when her uncle is murdered when he refuses to submit to his demands.
So when not battling masked adversaries in the ring, Gaby almost single-handedly takes on the evil doctor and his seemingly unstoppable robot ... this will be a battle to the death with the fate of world, no less, hanging in the balance. Whew!
