Storyline

Following the death of his sister, who was co-director with him of the Cowan Research Center in Pasadena, Dr. Frederick Munson was ousted and replaced by his widowed brother-in-law, Dr. Edmund Redding. Through Redding's son, Timmy, Munson has been able to learn of a secret project at the institute involving the use of hypnosis to regress subjects to past lives, which information Munson passes along to a friend, Dr. John Janney. To a newspaper editor-friend, Munson relates what happened next: through the hypnotic regression, Redding established that Ann Taylor was a reincarnated Aztec woman and, via her recovered memories, was able to find hidden chambers in the Great Pyramid of Yucatan, which store a treasure of the ancient Aztecs. However, the treasure was guarded by a living mummy, which killed Redding but was captured and brought back to Pasadena by Redding's assistants. As Munson conspired to regain control of the Cowan Institute, Janney plotted to steal the mummy and learn its ... Written by Rich Wannen <RichWannen@worldnet.att.net>

Scotch taped together over a 3 day weekend.
14 April 2001 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

I am risking professional ridicule for saying this but there was one of Jerry Warren's movies that I actually liked, MAN BEAST (1957) which certainly no classic did have certain moments. Now this Mexican import is another story. In it's original form it was probably a good movie (I don't speak Spanish so I can only guess) but Jerry took it and actually made this an overly complicated hodgepodge that is breathtakingly boring. One scene after another of people sitting and talking endlessly, a few precious minutes of the original Mexican footage, and then more scenes of people sitting and talking. FINALLY we get into the main plot but Jerry has reshuffled the scenes so much the Mexican plot has been totally supressed. Scenes of American actors reacting to the South-Of-The-Border footage would be funny if the overall tone of this re-edited mess was not so yawn inducing. The mummy is pretty authentic looking but we lost the subplot of the evil Dr. Krupp and his attempts to steal the sacred Aztec breastplate showing the location of the lost treasure. And thanks to Jerry's re-editing 2 of the main characters appear to get killed when in the original film they survive! Yow! if you like Mexican scary movies do yourself a favour and see the ones imported by K. Gordon Murray. He had sense enough to just dub them and release them intact. Jerry Warren, shame on you!
