    Here's the meat of the news:

    Sweet, I've got the DVD but it's in B&W and obviously cut so I'd love to pick this up if they ever release it. Unfortunately I hear Rise Above's DVD releases of these Santo films did very poorly. Hopefully it'll get a Mexican release at least and I can import that.

    WOW!!! I will get this as soon as it's released. I grew up watching these old movies, with El Santo, Mil Mascaras & Blue Demon. Very cool news!! :banana:

    I've never seen a Santo film but always wanted to. Which ones should I seek out and where can I get copies?

    So close yet so far away:
    http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory?id=13247201

    So that bites and is a little extreme as I'm sure for the film festival not much would come from it, but I guess he wants to stop it before it goes further than that.

    Shannafey, the best stuff was released by Rise Above Entertainment and while out of print is still relatively cheap on Amazon and even eBay (around $10). I recall Santo vs. Frankenstein's Daughter being my favorite.

    Doesn't sound like much of a legal case to me.

    ¡Ay, caramba! Santo In The Treasure of Dracula will be coming to Blu-ray, from a 4K restoration, February 9th, 2021! But the bad news is it's VCI:
    Apparently El Rey Network has been showing it too, but it doesn't appear to be upcoming on their schedule.

    From what I hear there's been newly commissioned English dubbings for many of these historically undubbed film from Mexico but hopefully VCI will include the original Spanish language versions with English subtitles. Their upcoming Batwoman & The Panther Women may give us a heads up on that.

    I'm tempted to wait for something better but few VCI releases have a European companion and even fewer of their Mexican releases do. So I may have to buy theirs.

    I prefer original language with subtitles as well. It's interesting that the film was shot black and white for the home market and color for the foreign. I've got a few cards from the original Mexican release and a photo from the color nude version. They weren't afraid to show the nudity on the material for the color release.
