| "The Aztec Mummy"
While giving a speech at a conference "Dr. Eduardo Almada" (Ramon Gay) is greeted with skepticism concerning his work with using hypnosis to facilitate the possibility of reincarnation. To help prove his point his fiancé, "Flor Sepulveda" (Rosa Arenas) agrees to undergo an experiment which results in her remembering a past life in which she was a virgin by the name of Xochi being prepared for sacrifice to the Aztec god Tezkatlipoka. She further recalled that an Aztec warrior by the name of "Popoca" (Angel Di Stefani) was madly in love with her and wanted her to run away with him. Unfortunately, both Xochi and Popoca were caught in a forbidden embrace and apprehended. He was then cursed by the high priest to remain in the burial chamber for eternity while Xochi was subsequently sacrificed. It is at this time that Flor is awakened and although she is badly shaken up Dr. Almada refuses to listen to her plea not to venture into the Aztec pyramid to retrieve the breastplate that Xochi was wearing when she died. Not only is he ambivalent to a curse placed upon anybody who retrieves it but he is also unaware that a mysterious burglar by the name of "the Bat" has been listening in to this entire conversation and plans on stealing it once Dr. Almada obtains it. But "the Bat" isn't the only thing that Dr. Almada needs to worry about. Now, rather than disclose any more of this film and possibly ruin it for those who haven't seen it I will just say that this was a decent clone to similar movies on this topic made in the past. Additionally, while the movie I saw was recorded in Spanish with English subtitles I still found it to be a fairly entertaining grade-B movie. I rate it as about average.
