Customer Reviews

There's laughable CGI.

The problem is, there's not all that much actual movie to go with it.
Robert Beveridge
On the other side is a hot Egyptian priestess who walks around naked.

If you have a fondness for silly, low-budget horror flicks, you may want to check this one out. A team of archeaology students find an Egyptian tomb in the woods of America! (Don't worry, there is an explanation.) They end up resurrecting a princess who proceeds to pick them off one by one.

If you watch a lot of horror films, you'll know what to expect. There's nudity, gore, bad dialouge. Still, this would be a fun one to watch on a rainy day. A guilty pleasure with a place of honor in my DVD library.

WARNING: possible spoilers ahead...

With the exception of the newly resurrected Full Moon movies, the Asylum distributes and produces the absolute worst horror movies on the video store shelves. The Asylum's legacy of lousiness continues with their Mummy epic, Legion of the Dead.

This movie is basically like Queen of the Damned with mummies instead of vampires and with Bruce Boxleitner and the kid from Gremlins instead of Aaliyah. This tepid tale begins when a couple of dirt bikers stumble on an ancient Egyptian burial tomb somewhere in the mountains of Los Angeles. You heard me right, this ancient Egyptian burial chamber is in the foothills of Los Angeles. Somehow those wacky Egyptians managed to make it all the way to California with a bunch of their loot and sarcophagus with a Queen Mummy in it. The Gremlins kid (can't remember his name) is an archaeologist who is summoned to the site after the two dirt bikers tell the cops about what they found.

The Gremlins guy leads a team on an expedition into the burial chamber. There's ten minutes of Indiana Jones shenanigans as our intrepid explorers make their way through into the tomb. Poisoned arrows, cryptic warnings written in hieroglyphs and trap doors abound. They make it through a winding maze of styrofoam cave walls and find a sarcophagus with an ancient Queen Mummy in it. Of course, they awaken this mummy from her slumber and it turns into an episode of Scooby Doo. The Queen Mummy reanimates a bunch of her mummy pals and they make short work of our explorers.

As far as the story goes, it doesn't get any more cookie cutter than this. It's shot on someone's camcorder, just like all the other offerings from the Asylum. The acting is cardboard. Overall, it's just a complete waste of time.

If you've ever seen the remake of The Mummy, you might be thinking that something's missing. Maybe a plot.

But you know director Paul Bale thought was missing? Naked hot chicks.

Instead of a male mummy terrorizing the world, Legion of the Dead features a female mummy (Claudia Lynx as Aneh-Tet) who happens to be entombed in America. There's an explanation for why this is, but this being an Asylum film...to ask too many questions is to risk madness.

There's some tension between pretty undergraduate Molly (Courtney Cloch), her ex-boyfriend Carter (Chad Michael Collins), her sister Kevyn (Emily Falkenstein), and lead archeologist Dr. Ari Ben-David (Rhett Giles) who instantly switches sides when faced with a naked mummy queen.

And who can blame him? On the one side is a bunch of whiny graduate students who actually believe Aneh-Tet is Annette, think she's gay because she tries to grab Kevyn by the crotch, and basically run around dithering about the end of the world. On the other side is a hot Egyptian priestess who walks around naked. Legion of the Dead is that kind of movie.

Just for kicks, Aneh-Tet also needs six virgin souls to power six guardian mummies (far short of a legion). She collects these souls like Mario collects coins, and each death is rewarded with a glowing crystal within the mummy's corpse, animating it. It's not long before the whole mummy band is back together again, mutilating people in hilarious fashion via instant organ removal.

Legion of the Dead doesn't have any hope of being taken seriously and doesn't try.

Another brain dead selection from the production company Asylum. LEGION OF THE DEAD attempts to mix mummy movie with sexploitation flick. The result, hardly a first, looks like an inferior remake of the much-maligned LIFEFORCE. This time, instead of a naked space-vampire chick that sucks the lifeforce out of entranced males, we get a naked mummy-vampire chick that sucks the lifeforce out of entranced males.

Calling this movie a rip-off would be a compliment, however. It would ignore how really bad this film is. Unconvinced? Think about this: the best feature of the movie is the bad acting.

So what are we left with? There's laughable CGI. A "legion of the dead" that amounts to a few badly made up mummies. An Egyptian tomb set that appears to have been made of cardboard (but perhaps that's how California's ancient Eyptians once constructed them). I kid you not, people. This tomb was discovered in the woods of Southern California. And don't make me start on the script. Please. I don't want to think about it in any kind of detail.

Thankfully, I am a guy.... and as such if the film has to suck at least I can still be entertained by the nudity. But skin aside, this film has nothing going for it.
