* The plot of ''Film/SantoEnElTesoroDeDracula'' involves a miraculous time travel device invented by the MaskedLuchador ElSanto. His friend Luisa makes the trip back to the past, because, curiously, [[GenderRestrictedAbility women are better suited for surviving the process than men]]. In any event, Santo also has the technology to ''monitor'' Luisa's journey back in time. Conveniently, it displays pictures and camera angles, and even scenes where Luisa is not physically present -- almost as if the characters were watching a ''film'' of Luisa's adventure!
