Cheesy and campy like normal, but not his best work
27 August 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

A bumbling taxi driver takes a man to visit his scientist friend in a small town, where he unknowingly comes across his secret experiments trying to bring the collections of mummies buried nearby back to life.

Not nearly as madly funny as previous Capulina efforts, even though this one manages to get a bit more serious in offering a horror tone to compensate even though it's still got some good solid laughs to it. I get the feeling it's more about wordplay and one-liners than the slapstick which is where the level of humor is unbalanced, so most is lost in translation, yet the incorporation of the mad scientist subplot allows for some fun and it's not really a boring effort. The endless procession of mummies stacked together, their badly deformed appearances looking really cool, the mad scientist lab and the construction overlooking a large villa on a hilltop creates some fine horror-based attitudes, leaving this one slightly lower yet still highly enjoyable.
