More funny than horrifying
6 March 2006 | by rcashdanSee all my reviews

I was part of a family audience in Guanajuato when I saw this. Great scenes of the city, great mummies with decomposing faces. Almost a spoof, none of the children around me seemed scared. Includes scenes of the seamy side of Guanajuato. Techniques borrowed from all over the place, technically good for a low budget film. After reading the other review, I know why lucha libre played such a prominent part in the film.

The one child actor wasn't up to snuff but his presence probably adds to the appeal of the plot for children.

Two beautiful Mexican actresses of very different physical types and a midget guide to the museum stood out in the cast.
