Fun Mexican B movie.
This second entry in the Wrestling Women saga isn't as entertaining as the first one (I remember liking the first one a lot) but delivers a good amount of fun. This is also the fourth entry in the Aztec Mummy saga, I will say that this is probably the best one in that series.
René Cardona knows how to make quality low budget cheesy horror films, this movie didn't show the mummy until like an hour in, but I didn't care, it was so entertaining I would have been fine if there was no mummy after all, but there is a mummy that appears 20 minutes before the movie ends and its great, this is a very memorable monster, its a mummy with huge crazy eyes that screams and turns into animals, like bats and tarantulas. The backstory for the mummy is the same one we saw in the previous films, but this time they shot new footage instead of reusing the same one from the other movies, I am very grateful for that, the backstory was even better shot and better made overall.
There is also this villain who resembles Fu Manchú, hes also very fun to watch and he has two fighting sisters who eventually fight the wrestling women in the ring, great stuff.
Our main characters are still as charming as in the previous installment, the effects aren't the best but Cardona makes up for it by making the best out of what he has, he gives us likable characters, an attractive plot, some comedy and lots of fight scenes. It started pretty interesting and eventually became a bit dull at points but it becomes fun again once the mummy is on screen.
I may enjoy the Wrestling Women movies more than El Santo movies or the Blue Demon ones, even more than The Aztec Mummy movies, its almost like Cardona knows me and wants me to have a good time with fun schlock while still making them good enough to be genuinely entertaining.
