A gang of criminals led by a Fu Manchu-like character is determined to find the ancient treasure buried in an Aztec tomb, and proceeds to dispose of several archaeologists and to steal information that will lead them to the goal. Enter two popular female wrestlers (Lorena Velazquez and

Elisabeth Campbell), who vow to stop them. Before departing for the ruins, the wrestling women enter into a match with the head villain's sisters--two burly experts in karate. Eventually, everyone winds up at the tomb, where, when someone tries to snatch a sacred medallion off the corpse of a

princess, her mummy guard comes to life to protect it. Able to turn into a bat or tarantula at will, the Aztec mummy gives both the villains and the heroes a run for their money. This extremely silly film presents both its wrestling and its horror at a fast and furious pace. The Aztec mummy must

be the only mummy in cinema history who can transform himself into other animals at will, and these scenes are made even funnier by the English dubbing, which has the startled humans gasping, "Now he's a vampire!" and "Oh! He's a mummy again!" The most widely available videotape version of this

film was released by Rhino Video, who saw fit to retitle the movie ROCK 'N' ROLL WRESTLING WOMEN VS. THE AZTEC MUMMY, truncate the footage, and add their own campy rock songs and music cues (including H.G. Lewis' score for BLOOD FEAST) to the soundtrack. The overall effect of this tampering is

slightly amusing, but one has to question the wisdom of trying to impose self-conscious camp in a film that is plenty campy on its own unadulterated form. Songs include: "The Aztec Mummy," "Head Locks and Hard Knocks," "We Wanna Be Wrestling Women" (David Starns, Richard Foos, performed by Jo Anne

Kurman), "Godzilla Stomp," "Night of the Living Wedge" (The Wedge), "5,000 Years Ago," "Ancient Weird Religious Rites," "A Fitting Death for the Garbage He Was" (Herschell Gordon Lewis), "Wrestling Women" (Starns, Foos).
