A honeymooning couple stay at a hotel in New Mexico. It all seems normal until an ambulance pulls up and takes the husband away. The wife, with the help of a truck driver, finds the awful secret to the hotel and the ambulance service.
The mummy of long dormant, but powerful Caribbean voodoo priest Gatanebo gets revived on a luxury South Seas ocean liner as a big buff bald guy and proceeds to terrorize the passengers. Gatanebo beheads several folks, occasionally reverts back to his prune-faced mummified state, and falls for the ravishing Sylvia, who reminds him of his old flame Kenya. Written by
I could not find another like you, so I found you again.
This film is an attempt to cash in on the blaxploitation craze of the 70's, even if it uses white actors in blackface - a big no no.
It stars Aldo Sambrell, who was a Spanish stuntman turned supporting actor who appeared in numerous low budget genre films from sword & sandal epics (Saul and David), spaghetti westerns (A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West), Italian war potboilers (The Fighting Corsair, Attack Force Normandy), and found work right up through the Caligula cash-ins (Orgies of Caligula), barbarian craze (Tuareg: The Desert Warrior) & sleaze movies of the 1990's. He was still working three years ago.
It borrows from numerous movies that would be familiar to those who follow the genre.
Lots of decapitations and native breasts.
