The Robot vs. The Aztec Mummy – Mexico, 1958


The Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy – originally: La momia azteca contra el robot humano – is a 1958 Mexican science fiction horror feature film directed by Rafael Portillo from a screenplay by Alfredo Salazar. The movie stars Ramón Gay, Rosa Arenas and Crox Alvarado.

The film is a sequel to The Aztec Mummy and The Curse of the Aztec Mummy, both released earlier that year, and a large portion of the film consists of an extended recap of the first two entries in the series.


“The direction is static and dull. There is a failure to invest anything in terms of atmosphere in the scenes with the mummy creeping about and menacing people. The most ridiculous thing about the twenty minutes of original footage that we get though is the robot. This is an absurdly clunky looking tin can where the actor inside awkwardly walks while swaying from side to side…” Moria

RvAM is just so strange, it’s hard not to become fascinated. The Krupp character is so over-the-top that he’s intriguing to watch. The final battle scene in the last five minutes, is so odd (more like a grade-school pushing match with sparks and smoke) that it’s worth the wait.” Classic Sci-Fi Movies
