A young man is confined in a mental hospital. Through a flashback we see that he was traumatized as a child, when he and his family were circus performers: he saw his father cut off the arms of his mother, a religious fanatic and leader of the heretical church of Santa Sangre ("Holy Blood"), and then commit suicide. Back in the present, he escapes and rejoins his surviving and armless mother. Against his will, he "becomes her arms" and the two undertake a grisly campaign of murder and revenge.

""Minä kohotan käteni sinun puoleesi, sieluni janoaa sinua kuin kuivunut maa... Sinun puoleesi minä käännyn -- opeta minulle tie, jota kulkea!" - Psalmi 143:6,8. Alejandro Jodorowskyllä oli taito tallella vielä viitisentoista vuotta edellisen mestariteoksen jälkeen. Vähän yllättäen uskonnolliseen mystiikkaan ja klassiseen surrealismiin erikoistunut maestro päätti tehdä oman näkemyksensä klassisesta sarjamurhaaja-elokuvasta. Vähän vähemmän yllättäen miehen käsistä syntyi "

"Oh, fuck it, I'll do Santa Sangre, too. Santa Sangre (Holy Blood) is the least insane of the Jodorowsky films, but is still pretty batshit crazy. It is also has all of the tropes and symbols one would expect after watching El Topo and the Holy Mountain. Watch Santa Sangre and see if you can spot them all! The Christ-like character is just one of them!"

"16.4. Odotin Santa Sangren olevan lähestulkoon jumalelokuva, joten petyin pahasti. Leffa tuntui roskaiselta giallolta, johon on heitetty mukaan Jodorowskyn sirkushuveja ja kääpiöitä. Ymmärrän, miksi sellainen viehättää ihmisiä, mutta giallo on todistetusti minulle vain ihan kivaa ajanvietettä eikä mitään sen suurempaa. Homma toimii ihan kivasti, mutta Holy Mountainin ja El Topon perusteella odotukset olivat jossain aivan muualla kuin ihan kivassa. "

"Parasta Jodorowskya siinä missä The Holy Mountain ja El Topokin. Huikea psykoanalyyttinen trippi ja tutkimusmatka myyttisen äitimaan syövereihin. Kuuluu niihin tapauksiin, jotka voidaan varauksetta nostaa elokuvataiteen suurimpien tähtihetkien joukkoon. Jodorowskyn yhteiskuntasatiiri on Buñueliakin purevampaa."
