My favorite Mexican Monster movie
16 August 2002 | by (Skull Island) – See all my reviews

I've seen lots of these K. Gordon Murray specialties, like the Aztec Mummy series, Nostrodamus, etc. They are all terrible, but this one has a certain charm to it. I won't give anything vital away, but a short description is in order. A man dies and his corpse goes missing. His heir, a beautiful woman, comes to take over the estate. Weird things happen involving some sort of monster and a cowboy/detective arrives to investigate. That's all I'll say. Its got some atmosphere and nice scenery, and that's all. It still stinks, but not as bad as Wrestling Women vs. the Aztec Mummy. This would have been ideal for an episode of MST3K. RATING: 3 out of 10. Barely watchable.
