SINISTER SIMULACRA FROM SOUTH OF THE BORDER

You may have noticed the photo in one of last week's postings about Mexican monster movies. It depicts a sea monster from the film, PEPITO VS. THE MONSTERS.


In his series of articles with FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND, Walt Lee, author of the REFERENCE GUIDE TO FANTASTIC FILMS, mentions that Mexican filmmakers, presumably in order to cut costs and appeal to the already classic monster image, would often use doctored up Don Post masks for their monsters. It doesn't take much of a stretch to see the an example of that here.
