A group of high school students on an archaeological dig discover a centuries old mummified body in a sealed cave. Removing the mummy, it soon comes back to life, revealing itself to be an inhuman beast that terrorizes a small California town. Written by

The early scene featuring the black dog is clearly intended to take place at night. Cricket sounds are heard, a filter is used to darken the image, and the actress makes reference to it being night. But the opening shot of the scene aims the camera right into the sun! See more »
If you are a fan of drive-in movies, bad movies, camp, then then this movie is a MUST for your collection! This used to be shown on the Saturday Creature Features quite often and it must be seen to be believed. Plan 9 from Outer Space is Citizen Kane next to this film; it has it all: wooden acting, long long stretches of the "actors" walking through the forest (accompanied by a thrilling music score, as if something interesting is actually happening), a perfectly inane bigfoot costume, hilarious dialog. This was released in 1976 with new footage attached to an apparently older movie (mid 60's?)concerning some archaeological students disturbing an ancient desert tomb. They discover a mummy that comes to life as a bigfoot sort of creature! What is simply amazing is that they brought one of the actors from the older movie back to appear in the newer footage!! To this day my family jokes about having the urge for a bottle of pop!
