When Dr. Bruno Halder dies; Santo and Blue Demon share the suspicion that he was a criminal mastermind. Their suspicions are confirmed when Blue Demon witnesses Waldo, Dr. Halder’s assistant, carrying the doctor’s body back into his castle and bringing him back to life. When the re-animated doctor discovers Blue Demon, he clones him and sends the clone to kill Santo, along with a grotesque gallery of monsters, which includes a Vampire, a Mummy, a Cyclops, a Werewolf and Frankenstein. Santo will have to find the castle and rescue Blue Demon, so they can destroy the monsters and their evil creator mano a mano.
