The evil Dr. Krupp, once again trying to get possession of the Aztec princess Xochitl's jewels, hypnotizes her current reincarnation, Flor, to get her to reveal the jewels' location - Xochitl's tomb. Confusion reigns as Krupp and his thugs are opposed by Flor's lover, Dr. Almada, his assistant, and wrestling superhero, El Angel. Krupp finally meets his match, however, when he comes up against Popoca, the warrior mummy who guards Xochitl's tomb. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Maldicion de la Momia Azteca, La (1957)

** (out of 4)

Corny sequel has The Bat escaping police custody and kidnapping the scientist and his girlfriend (both from the first film). This time around there's also an overweight, masked wrestler named The Angel who tries to help matters and of course there's the aztec mummy who is nice enough to stop by for about five minutes. While the first film was a tad bit more serious in tone, this one here is pure camp from start to finish and manages to get quite a few unintentional laughs. I couldn't help but laugh my ass off at The Angel who has to be one of the dumbest "heroes" in film history. His goal is to protect the scientist and his family but he gets them in more trouble than anything else. The scene where The Angel gets beat up by The Bat's men is priceless. This film only runs 63-minutes but I still can't figure out why they only use the mummy for five minutes. Oh well.
