BATWOMAN La Mujer Murcielago - Batman Cult Movie Now on DVD
LA MUJER MURCIELAGO!! In the late 60's there was a very low-budget Batman Movie, actually "Batwoman Movie", released in 1968 that is now a super cult classic. The title is LA MUJER MURCIELAGO & it was directed by René Cardona. It stars Maura Monti as Gloria / Batwoman. The basic story is that a mad super-scientist is wanting to create a supreme race of Super-Gill Men so he uses the glands of wrestlers because they are "perfect". Wrestlers are winding up dead all over Acapulco so the call goes out for that mysterious crime fighter BATWOMAN! Trust me, it's great stuff, ha ha! Now for the longest time this bootleg movie has been really difficult to find but now there's a lot of companies printing these on DVD. At the time of this writing I couldn't any copies on Amazon or ebay but a quick Google search will provide a lot of options. Here's a short clip from YouTube:
