Sheik El Sahid decides to build a 'Mummy Theme Park' in an underground City of the Dead that has just been revealed in Egypt. However, it is a cursed area and when he tries to bring the mummies back to life by inserting microchips into them, they react aggressively and suddenly no one is safe.
In 'The Mummy Theme Park', Italian Director Al Passeri presents us with a horror film obviously set in Egypt. The story kicks off with an earthquake which, by chance, uncovers a cursed underground city. A sacred seal is broken and an unimaginable force of evil is unleashed. The main attraction of a computer generated underground city of the dead turns into a bloodthirsty killer! The special effects, although impressive, hardly surpass the likes of 'The Mummy' but they do add to the fun. Be aware though that there are a few outrageous gory scenes this film is not for the weak hearted! The DVD version includes a widescreen presentationand Dolby Digital sound. You also get the original Trailer and interview from various cast members (Adam o'neill' Holly Laningham' Helen Preest etc.) It is a fun film but i can't imagine anyone wanting to view this more than twice, unless your a diehard fan of egyptology.
The people who gave this movie only one star clearly do not have a sense of humour, or at the very least not any love for a good B movie cheese fest. If you can appreciate the work of people like Fred Olen Ray or old Jim Wynorski then there is definitely a lot of fun to be had with The Mummy Theme Park! Yes the acting is below par, and the effects are as dodgy as a guy with a long coat and shades hanging around at a children's playground but that is exactly what the charm is about this movie. It's funny as hell and has got it's heart in the right place.
Not all of the directors other films are as 'good' as this one, but if you like this one then I recommend you check out Plankton and Flight Into Hell. Now get a bong and a sixpack and boogie like an egyptian!
That's right folks, this movie is realy that bad. I bought it on the strength of the only other review of this movie which made it sound like it was fun. Well if you really like amateurish movies with appalling visual effects, acting and scripting, then this is the movie for you. I love Mummy movies of all kinds and have many in my collection that could best be described as 'B' class movies but even the worst of them is an academy award winner compared with this piece of rubbish. Even Talos the Mummy is a better movie and that's really saying something.It was a waste of $A20 of my hard earned money and 1 1/2 hours of my time.Pull out one of your nails if you must but PLEASE avoid this movie. There are some really great Mummy movies out there and they are certainly worth a look at. Make the effort to sort out the good from the bad and you will be rewarded, doubly so if you give this one a miss. I must stress that I have no problems with the seller in regards to this purchase or the price they charged for it but Al Paressi should find himself a new vocation, one that he's better suited to.One comes to mind - a rubbish collector so he can be responsible for the removal (and recycling) of this movie from the face of the Earth.
