American Mummy had its world premiere at Revelation Film Festival in Perth, Australia in 2014. This awakens the death-hungry spirit of the Aztec Lord Tezcalipoca, intent on finishing his centuries-old reign of terror. The trio uncovers a buried mummy, but Philip is killed when he triggers a spear trap in the cave. This is where the film lost me. Still entranced, Jose dons ceremonial garb and performs a rite of resurrection over the mummy in the cave.
Albert beheads her and burns her body. American Mummy passes cheesy and goes into bizarrely bad. He gives the horror fans some great scares. The theme music playing over the beginning credits sounded like someone playing a Sitar and it kind of gave American Mummy an Egyptian feel. One thing I wonder about is how these people in movies always have such bright flashlights? However, while it does have some solid positives the flaws here are far more detrimental.
This movie started as American Mummy over a decade ago, when all we had was the title and a dream! We assumed we were striking new ground in the realm of mummy films, since ours was an American mummy, not an Egyptian one. On top of the latter half of the story being a disappointment, the characters themselves were, for the most part, unlikable. They argue and go back and forth as to whether it is an Aztec god or a virus? Another man gets his arm cut off below the elbow, we then see him shortly later standing upright, acting normal missing his arm at the shoulder where it is bandaged with duct tape. Especially an Aztec Mummy who is a couple hundred or possibly thousands of years old and it wants to kill. The one saving grace is that the special effects involving the gore and zombie violence Yes, there is more things to do with zombies than mummies is pretty good. The only saving grace is characters get killed fairly quickly so you don't have to suffer through their bad acting all that long.
Everything sucked in this movie, the acting, the story-line, the direction, the editing and even the 3D sucked. And the 1961 3D film The Mask uses a mask of our mummy, Tezcatlipoca, as the transmitter of psychedelic visions. Vous ne pouvez pas télécharger ou regarder des films en ligne sur ce site. Guide: F-word, sex, nudity Erin Condry, Esther Canata + uncredited dancer Heading into the desert, a university research team heads out to investigate the findings of an Aztec idol nearby come to find they have unleashed the murderous spirit of an ancient warrior who is killing off the team one-by-one and must find a way to stop the deadly rampage. I have to go with. Carmen Esther Canata , a graduate student steeped in apocalyptic scholarship, performs a secret, bloody rite above the ancient corpse, awakening the spirit of Tezcalipoca, Lord of the Smoking Mirror.
Charles Pinion did a great job with this film and the cast really pulled off someone insane stuff. Read on to find out! This awakens the death-hungry spirit of the Aztec Lord Tezcalipoca, intent on finishing his centuries-old reign of terror. Les marques citées sur cette page sont la propriété de leurs titulaires. Aztec mummy of Lord Tezcalipoca is discovered in the desert by some Monroe University students. The first half had me intrigued, with the group of students and their Professor excavating an ancient tomb.
The extras are trailers for the movie including a real long and gory one , a video about the 3D rig we used, and a couple of behind-the-scenes things, one a funny bloopers moment where two actors try to get through a scene without cracking up. American Mummy was filmed mainly in Apple Valley and Lucerne Valley, California, which I feel really works for the film. The film stars Suziey Block as Professor Jensen, Aiden Bristow as Max, Aaron Burt Derek , Esther Canata Carmen , Erin Condry Connie , Jack Grimmett Phillip , Rudy Marquez Jose , Peter Marr Albert , Rigo Obezo Aztec Priest , Jennifer June Ross Becca and Greg Salman as Dr. The team decides to leave the dig site, but discovers that the van is disabled. The effects were decent and the torso scene is something that was different in a mummy based film.
The environment, the mummy and the fear certainly helped them. And was the mummy, or even the story set around it, inspired by any other films in that long-running series of mummy movies? This could have been a lot better, but I felt the right sacrifices were made to secure the location, the props, and the special effects — which keep this movie from being a total bomb. Finally, your favorite mummy movie of all time? The movie was cast, and we planned to live and shoot in the tents where the movie was set. Unfortunately, that is pretty much all of the mummy that we get to see in this film. The acting is terrible, there isn't enough naked to distract you and there is no script to speak of. Exteriors are shot in a desert so windy, dialogue sometimes gets garbled.
Was it easy to title the movie American Mummy without Universal coming after the studio? As well, once this one gets going in the second half with the possessed going on all sorts of great rampages the action is quite fun and makes this a little more engaging, with the discovery of the dead colleague moving around the camp, the brawl with the second victim crawling around without a lower body, the ceremonial offerings in the cave system or the final battle with the possessed followers inside the camp which all makes this one seem far more engaging than it really is by bringing in some solid action and plenty of gore to help liven this one up. Derek also covertly passes an ancient Aztec codex to Carmen that she previously requested. Carmen and Derek then perform a secret blood ritual over the mummified remains in the cave. At an archaeological dig in the New Mexico desert, a group of university students unearth a mummy wearing a fearsome mask made out of a human skull. Every choice made is bad, the mummy never shows up, and the acting is awful. The fact that it doesn't have the budget to bring out an actual mummy is a big issue, rarely featuring anything about the actual creature coming back shuffling around killing people and being more about the return of the curse driven by the creature and it rarely provides much to discount that feeling.
I honestly never felt bored through the entire runtime which, given some of its faults, could have made it an endurance test. Though the story was a let down and the acting and score were amateurish, I did appreciate some of the effects that went into American Mummy. Also entranced, Derek submits himself to Jose and is sacrificed. Not only that, but they were poor actors as well. Was it everything I had hoped for? I love being surprised by movies. Hardly anything is more damaging here than the rather low-budget throughout here, which is quite obvious and really does this one a disservice.
