Michael B. Miller,
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
Amusing random trash complete with blackface, terrible gore FX, bad dubbing, buxom flame- swallowing exotic dancers, topless "voodoo rites," flashbacks in heavy red tint, a Carlsbad-type cave with stalactites, documentary second-unit footage obviously shot on the streets w/o official permission, and so forth.
I wasn't at all clear why the reincarnated mummy killed several characters he had no apparent grudge against. But then, senselessness is always welcome in a truly bad movie. "We can only believe in gods that dance," one character says. Apparently those gods condone Afro-Cuban as well as Western bump & grind. In a probable first, we see mummy in combat with firehose.
This movie may be nuts, but it isn't boring, at least for bad cinema aficionados. Though I can't say I'd really want to see it again, unlike some true camp classics. Once is enough.
