This week's Chicanonautica over at La Bloga celebrates the cinema of lucha libre, and recently, the WWE Hall of Fame, Mil Máscaras.

Here are three of my favorite Mil Máscaras movies, so you can do a triple-feature:

In El Robo de la Mumias de Guanajuato Hollywood and Mexican traditions collide as Dracula and a mad scientist steal the famed mummies of the city of Guanajuato, bring them back to life, and the mayhem begins:

Los Champeones Justicieros featres Mil Máscaras, Blue Demon, and four other luchadores, and a mad scientist with a crew of super-powered dwarves:

Misterio en las Bermudas gets into mondo weirdness: Santo, Blue Demon, and Mil Máscaras face the end of the world, an Atlantean utopia, mysterious alien forces, and the Bermuda Triangle:
