At least there was some mummies, as the title promises...
2 January 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I've watched 2 DVD versions of this, first one was Anchor bay UK's version, that I've now lost god knows where (maybe I broke or sold it, can't remember, it was years back now) and the Macady's version, which I think is open matte. Correct if I'm wrong.

But get to the point. The movie is quite awful (well, not as awful as many Bruno Mattei stuff, but we're getting pretty close to that. There's some grave-robbers, who violate the sacred tomb of (what-ever the name was) and gets curse upon them. Also there's annoying filming group, pretty much lack of nudity, they didn't offer much to this already crappy movie.

However, there's a turning point at the ending of the movie, where the ancient legend became truth, and the ending is full of nice-nice splatter (by no-one else but Maurizio Trani). So, if you can bear all the stupidness of the movie about 70 minutes, the ending is definitely worth to seen. Overall, I'll give this movie just a 3/10, reasons I mentioned above.
