La Momia Azteca (1957) Pretty damn good and without question the best of the three films on this set. Like all monster movies, you wish there was more of the namesake mummy. If the translations presented here are accurate (I speak some Spanish, but I'm not fluent) then the dialogue in this film comes across as more intellectual than the average low budget horror movie. The story of the Bat stealing the Aztec treasure is carried throughout all three films. The scenes with the Aztec ceremony and the hypnosis would definitely be considered "padding" within this plotline, but in the end, simply put the score is excellent and the mummy looks great.
La Maldicion De La Momia Azteca (1957) For some reason the aforementioned "padding" scenes from the first film are repeated here. The character of the Angel is pretty worthless and would be out of place in any country other than Mexico. Angel can't fight or act and he doesn't add anything to the plot. The mummy still looks great and it's kind of crazy to see all the main characters take numerous beatings. Overall, a silly yet slightly above average movie despite my criticisms.
La Momia Azteca Contra El Robot Humano (1958) I think the only sequel that had more flashbacks than this one is 'Silent Night, Deadly Night 2'. A lot of the story is told in flashbacks, but the first 25 minutes simply repeats scenes from the first two films. Within the flashbacks, we find out that the Bat is still alive and still causing trouble. Here he's creating life a la 'Frankenstein' with a hint of 'The Invisible Ray' thrown in, but we get a REALLY lame version of Frankenstein's monster. This film deservedly got the Mystery Science Theater 3000 treatment that I believe is also available on DVD. The graveyard scenes add a new element to the series, but considering that almost half the movie is a flashback, it's hard to call this anything more than an average horror film.
given the lack of extras on disc one, they really should have thrown in at least one of the two movies Jerry Warren edited out of the the first film. Given the public domain status of these films , ATTACK OF THE MAYAN MUMMY abd FACE OF THE SCREAMING WEREWOLF, its almost a crime. Look, I know that Warren used very little of The Aztec Mummy in these films, but as extras they would be great.
And now that Ive seen The Aztec MummyI know why Warren edited them that way. Because The Aztec Mummy is the weakest film of the three and the Mummy Popoca doesnt even show up until near the end of the movie. In fact you will probably forget you are watching The Aztec Mummy about half way through. Another extra could have been Wrestling women vs. The Aztec Mummy. Its a different mummy, but this set really begs for extras.
All that aside, I think its a pretty good product comming from BCI. They are putting out really great quality sets like Filmation studios shows such as Ark II and Groovey Goolies as well as the inexcusably almost unwatchable awful
quality Ultraman sets.
