Storyline

Six archeology students are spending the summer at an isolated rural compound with their college professor, working on an exciting discovery: an ancient mummy, found in the ruins of a temple. Little do they realize that the mummy was the servant of the Rain God, and that one of them has the ability to bring it back to life to exact its master's deadly revenge. Trapped inside of the compound with the murderous, unstoppable creature, they must join forces to destroy the monster, or allow it to carry out its plans to annihilate all mankind.

Goofs

Embalming involves putting the corpse into honey, after carefully removing its brain and internal organs. Therefore the professor's claim, that the person (the mummy) was embalmed alive, does not make sense. See more »

Montezuma's revenge
11 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a genuinely pitiful film that cannot hide behind the excuse of having no budget, I have seen student films that outclass this one and some of those were made in an afternoon.

There's this jock who is inexplicably on an archeology course. Where's he studying? Well judging by the sets he is at the prestigious university of the directors kitchen. The entire movie is filmed in some guys house and lecture halls are artfully represented by the living room. I expect the dean's office is in the crapper.

Anyway nothing much happens except an ungodly amount of trekking from one room to another. The monster is unleashed for ridiculous reasons and there's an Aztec priest who must surely win the prize for worst casting ever.

In fact the entire cast are awful, not one of them would be considered convincing enough to use on an advert so how they actually got onto a DVD that sits on my shelf I honestly don't know. Some of them say their lines and then look directly at the camera because that's where the guy holding the cue cards is stood.

It really is a pitiful effort. One of the worst films I've ever seen and just so totally pointless in every way. It's also pretty obvious they don't know who Bram Stoker is.
