Trivia

This second entry in the series features a superhero dressed like a masked professional wrestler. This predates the superhero/professional wrestler sub-genre that would become popular in Mexico during the 1960s. The el Angel of this film seems like a direct model for the el Santo films, complete with his nifty little white sports car. See more »

Goofs

During the ambush, it is obvious that the actors using the machine gun are just shaking the weapon while a poor sound effect of a machine gun is dubbed in. There is no muzzle flash or smoke coming from the weapon. See more »

A mummy holds secrets of the future.
20 January 2002 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

Released in the U.S. as CURSE OF THE AZTEC MUMMY in 1957, this movie seems to be made cheap and in a hurry. Hurry for it to be over is not a good compliment for a movie that only runs 65 minutes. When horror is done badly it becomes comedy. The evil Dr. Krupp(Luis A. Castaneda) also known as the desperate criminal The Bat continues his search for the breast plate and bracelet of an Ancient Aztec mummy. Dr. Almada (Ramon Gay) must protect his fiance Flor(Rosa Arenas)for she is a reincarnate of an ancient handmaiden that knows the location of the coveted treasure. Flor is kidnapped by the Bat's gang of hoodlums and coming to the rescue is a hooded, capped and haphazard fighter of crime The Angel(Crox Alvardo), who gets more ass whippings than a red headed step-child. So much for a hero. So much for horror that turns into laughable mystery. Stick to ice cold Mexican beer, a bowl of salsa and a dozen beef taquitos!
