Storyline

Following the death of his sister, who was co-director with him of the Cowan Research Center in Pasadena, Dr. Frederick Munson was ousted and replaced by his widowed brother-in-law, Dr. Edmund Redding. Through Redding's son, Timmy, Munson has been able to learn of a secret project at the institute involving the use of hypnosis to regress subjects to past lives, which information Munson passes along to a friend, Dr. John Janney. To a newspaper editor-friend, Munson relates what happened next: through the hypnotic regression, Redding established that Ann Taylor was a reincarnated Aztec woman and, via her recovered memories, was able to find hidden chambers in the Great Pyramid of Yucatan, which store a treasure of the ancient Aztecs. However, the treasure was guarded by a living mummy, which killed Redding but was captured and brought back to Pasadena by Redding's assistants. As Munson conspired to regain control of the Cowan Institute, Janney plotted to steal the mummy and learn its ... Written by Rich Wannen <RichWannen@worldnet.att.net>

Attack Of The Hack Director Jerry Warren
27 September 1999 | by evilskipSee all my reviews

In 1957 a neat little movie called The Aztec Mummy was made in Mexico.It was the forerunner of 3 more movies in the Aztec Mummy series.While these weren't classics they were fun to watch.

In 1964 Jerry Warren bought the US rights to the film Aztec Mummy. He cut out 45 minutes of the original movie.Why he did this is anybody's guess. He replaced the footage with 45 minutes of scientists & newspaper men TALKING!!These "characters" were inserted because they were cheap and were only used as exposition!

Remember ol' skip's rule of thumb:Using the first five minutes having actors doing exposition and you have a bad movie on your hands. Try sitting through the first 30 minutes of this agonizing film of truly mind numbing, boring "conversation". Truly cinematic Hell.

I would love to see the original movie again but alas it is probably lost to us now.This "cut" is the WORST movie in memory. Rhino just released it. Stay away from this. You've been warned.
