Some films are a cry from the soul, the painfully beautiful craft of a artist who wants to leave his mark upon the world, to touch the very wellspring of creativity, to sacrifice themselves to their vision so that suffering mankind might drink deeply and relieve their thirst for some kind of understanding about the world.

This is not one of them.

I think the best summary of this film can be found in the astounded reviews in IMDB.

“All right, I didn’t expect anything of this, but I think that this is one of the most laughable excuses for a movie I’ve ever seen. This is so painful to watch (the mummy!) even Ed Wood would be ashamed of it. Even for a no-budget-movie this is so bad you wouldn’t believe it until you see it. There is virtually no script, the actors are a joke and rural America is supposed to be Ancient Egypt (???)”


“This is an interesting film because I can’t figure out why the filmmakers bothered to make it. Basically “Attack of the Virgin Mummies” is about showing as much gratuitous nudity as possible.”

Let’s put it this way, on the one hand the production values leave a little to be desired. Electrical buzz on the soundtrack? Badly mixed, peaking sound? Badly coloured scenes? Weird lighting? The cast is, shall we say, not ‘A List’: Violet Blue, star of both Ass Lovers 1 and Ass Angels 5. Peter Gullerud .. er .. Animation Assistant on ‘The Little Mermaid’.

On the other hand, where else are you going to see a naked woman in a martial arts fight with a 3000 year old dancing mummy?

We all know exactly what this film is. Let’s enjoy it in the spirit it was intended.
