In the excavation of Pompeii, a stone-encrusted body is found with a bronze medallion bearing a strange Etruscan inscription. Carlo Fiorillo, Italian archaeologist, speculates the robust body may hold some life; medical researcher Paul Mallon scoffs at the idea. But people left alone with the seemingly petrified "faceless man" keep dying of crushed skulls; and Paul's artist fiancée Tina starts having strange visions... Written by

Dr. Carlo Fiorillo:
One more of these killings and they will hold me criminally responsible.
The fools! Here we are so close to solving the mystery of life and death, and they worry about their precious laws.

Watching this film you will easily be reminded of the Universal classic mummy films on Kharis (which starred Tom Tyler & Lon Chaney as the mummy Kharis). But instead of being a mummy this is a man made of stone that was found at the ancient site of Pompeii. It is very much like the Universal Kharis series.
I like this film - it's not nearly as good as the mummy series but it is a fun horror film like any of the Kharis films. It's just one of those movies you can really turn off your thinking cap and just kick back and enjoy the craziness on screen.
