Don't lose your head over this
11 January 2000 | by (In an ancient tomb) – See all my reviews

Not a very remarkable movie nor as bad as its reputation. The tomb of an Aztec general is defiled.His head (all that remains of him)and bodyguard are removed for study.Needless to say the defilers of the tomb start having severe chest pains as their hearts are removed forcibly.

There are plot holes large enough to park a sepulchre in.In front of the "Living Head" lies a bloody warm heart.In front of the 1000 year old bodyguard is a pool of blood which is coming from the bloody dagger he is holding."Hey. I'll admit something strange is going on here but I don't believe it's a curse.It is the work of a madman" says the police investigator.Of course if he did the movie would be over in 10 minutes.

As usual the dubbing is horrible.A majority of the male voices are done by one man(probably Paul Frees).The movie does move along and is competently directed.Not as painful as it could have been.
