Storyline

If you've ever longed for a movie about wrestling women who take on various monsters, this is it. There is Xochitl, a female mummy, and her lover Tezomoc who is also a mummy, and he can turn into a snake or a bat, which is difficult to get half-Nelsons on. Loreta and the Golden Ruby join forces to battle the evil Prince Fujiyata and his Oriental female Judo wrestlers. The mummy Tezomoc is male and on the good side of the struggle (at least he fights the bad guys). The lady wrestlers earlier appeared in "Doctor of Doom." Written by alfiehitchie

Quotes

Dr. Luis Trelles: Tezomoc was buried alive, and his punishment is to maintain an eternal vigil over the breastplate. And through the endless centuries, his soul will never be able to enjoy eternal rest. While the High Priest blew a mournful dirge on the shell, a slab was placed upon his tomb. And that is how death finally came to Tezomoc, the Nagual, and his beloved Xochitl.
Chela: That's a most interesting story, doctor.
Prince Fujiyata: [spying on them via a secret TV camera ] I've never heard anyone talk such utter nonsense.

Wrestling Women vs. the Aztec Mummy, The (1964)

* (out of 4)

Notorious Mexican film has a gang of criminals known as The Black Dragons killing off archaeologists so that they can find some ancient Aztec secrets. Soon a group of wrestling women try to stop their evil deeds and it eventually leads to an Aztec mummy who has his own plans. Fans of bad movies have been eating this one up for decades now. There's no question that the performance are horrid, the direction even worse and the story itself makes no sense but thankfully the film is so bad that you can't help but get a few laughs out of it. While watching this movie I couldn't help but wonder who on Earth this thing was made for. I know these Mexican "wrestling" movies were popular in their day but it's really hard to see why. I mean, none of the wrestling matches are exciting and they're so poorly filmed that you can't help but laugh. Even worse is the incredibly stupid story that never really makes any sense. One minute you'll be thinking one thing is happening and then all of the sudden, and out of nowhere, the film will go into a different direction. The final twenty-minutes of the film finally has the mummy appearing and it almost seems as if it was thrown in for no reason and possibly just added after production as a way to get the film into more theaters. No matter the reason, the mummy stuff is pretty funny and especially in the English dubbed version. The heavy breathing and moaning will surely get you laughing but I must say that the actual look of the mummy is quite good. The final moments of the film aren't all that exciting but we at least get the mummy in some decent action including one sequence where he attacks all of the criminals. With that said, the appeal of this thing is only going to be for those who enjoy bad movies. There's really nothing else "good" going on here and it's so cheaply produced you still wonder what the entire point was. I do wonder if those involved realized that they were making something that people would still be watching fifty-years later.
