What a load of hokum. Not surprising, of course, Mexico 1972 with masked wrestlers the heroes.

Just realised I haven't even mentioned the titular 'mummies' but then it is easy to forget them. great first appearance in the catacombs but all down hill thereafter what with all their slow movement and zombie like automaton action. Hope I haven't put anyone off this! Seriously my best advise is consider watching and then buy the poster instead.
