Movie Info

With a sub-barrel bottomed budget, this Mexican horror outing features wicked old Dr. Krupp, the crazed experimenter who caused trouble in this film's two predecessors The Aztec Mummy and Curse of the Aztec Mummy (both 1957), up to his old tricks. As in the former features, he is again trying to trick the Aztec mummy Popoca into leaving his crypt so the bad doctor can get at the treasure within. This time his scheme entails the invention of the title tin man (complete with incandescent light bulb ears), a device he equips with a human brain. A horrific battle ensues when the two monsters collide. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Robot Vs. the Aztec Mummy

A slow film with many boring moments and one of the dullest fights I've ever seen. There's not much to the plot and the characters are uninteresting, leaving it to be a film that's best to watch on MST3K.

The Bat wants to steal Aztec valuables. There's a mummy guarding the goodies. The Bat builds a robot to defeat the mummy. So bad I had to see it to the end. The robot is a special effect not to be missed. If ratings reflected bad this would be four star.

A bizarre Mexican B-Movie that mixes a supernatural mummy named Popoca that is cursed to guard a set of sacred Aztec artifacts with a plot that involves hypnotism, bits of reincarnation and a good dose of mad science. A mad scientist nicknamed the Bat is hell-bent on stealing the valuables and decides to build a robot that can destroy the mummy when it attempts to reclaim the treasure. This is one of those "so bad it's good" movies. The majority of the movie is told in flashbacks, the heroes are unsurprisingly uninteresting, the robot at the end of the film is hilariously bad and the Bat hams up the screen with maniacal mad scientist glee. By no means is it a good film, but it does have an insane kind of energy that makes it appealing to those that love B Horror movies.
