| "The Curse of the Aztec Mummy"
This movie picks up where the previous film "The Aztec Mummy" left off with "Dr. Krupp" (Luis Aceves Castaneda) being interrogated by the police for his role as the criminal mastermind known as "The Bat". His latest caper was attempting to steal an Aztec breastplate and bracelet in order to locate an ancient Aztec treasure. To do this he needed the services of "Dr. Almada" (Ramon Gay) and his pretty fiancé "Flor Sepulveda" (Rosa Arenas) and he had no concern about kidnapping or murdering them if that becomes necessary. Now, although he was arrested he still desperately wants this treasure and this movie essentially begins with him getting another chance when his men rescue him during a bloody shootout on the way to prison. Attempting to help the police is a masked man known as "The Angel" whose identity is best left secret so as not to spoil the film for those who haven't seen it. Be that as it may, for a sequel to a rather average movie this film wasn't too bad all things considered. While it features the same cast and manages to keep things rolling along one specific complaint I had was that it didn't show as much of the Aztec mummy as I would have liked. Additionally, while it isn't necessary to see the first movie it certainly wouldn't hurt--if for no other reason than to have a bit more insight into what is going on. In any case, it wasn't quite as good as "The Aztec Mummy" and for that reason I have rated it one notch below it. Slightly below average.
