"How far can the human mind penetrate the mysteries of the great beyond? Who knows? This picture is based upon an extraordinary experiment, carried out by Doctors Hughes and Tooney of the University of Los Angeles. There is no doubt as to its authenticity. Testimony of people participating

in the experiment, sworn to by a notary public, precludes the possibility of any fraud. This picture is a combination of factual data, mixed with fiction." So said the publicity for THE ROBOT VS. THE AZTEC MUMMY. But we know better, don't we? It's really just a silly sequel to THE AZTEC MUMMY

(1957) in which the evil Dr. Krupp (Luis Aceves Casteneda) is once again after the treasure buried in a crypt guarded by Popoca, the Aztec mummy. To combat the powerful mummy, Krupp creates a robot with a human brain (actually a man in a clunky suit with huge lightbulbs in his ears). The climactic

battle between the robot and the Aztec mummy is a real hoot. Although given the seal of approval by the "Young American Horror Club" upon its American release in 1965, this feeble effort is rescued only by its inherent strangeness. It is also padded with lots of footage from the first film. CURSE

OF THE AZTEC MUMMY, the third and final installment in the series, was also released in 1959.
