Charles 'Chic' Sale,
A gun is clearly discharged several times in the fight scene near the end, but it makes no sound. See more »
There are two different US versions of this film: One is the American International Pictures print with the original atmospheric music score (complete with classical music pieces), and during the climactic fight between Popoca and the Human Robot, Popoca had a scary, menacing voice (ie. groaning and roaring). Another is the 1964 rerelease by Young Horror Club of America, with a completely redone (and loopy) music score, somewhat different title cards, and the voice of Popoca (in said climactic fight) was replaced with a faint high-pitched voice (which sounded more like he was yawning). This latter version was seen in the public domain. Both versions had the exact same dubbing done for US producer K. Gordon Murray by Manuel San Fernando (intended for AIP's version). See more »
It's hard not to laugh at this movie. It's hard not to laugh knowing that somewhere, someone sat down and thought that having a robot fight a mummy would make for a good picture. And it might have been if the two title characters combined for more than 5 min of screen time. Unfortunately, most of the film consists of flashback scenes and some scientist's encounters with "The Bat". The robot, built out of sturdy cardboard and headlights, isn't even introduced till the movie is practically over and their monumental confrontation (the premise the movie is supposedly centered around) lasts about 30 sec.
I have a lot of questions for this movie. Why is the bad guy referred to as "The Bat"? Why does the mummy sound like a gorilla? Why did the robot need to have a human head? Why was there an endless Aztec dance scene? Why?
