Professor Langley (Robert Madison) takes a bunch of his college students to Mexico to look for a lost Mayan temple - and thanks to their mysterious and possibly sinister guide Bruha (Anna Marcello), they find it, too. However, Bruha fails to tell them the dark past of the temple: 2000 years ago, a Mayan high priest (Hugo Barret) wanted to gain immortality via a brutal ritual here, but the ritual was interrupted before it could be completed, and the high priest was mummified and entombed as a punishment. Thing is, one of Langley's students, Viola (Kasia Zurakowska) is the reincarnation of what would have been the high priest's final sacrifice ...

Langley's students are of course dumb as shit, with nothing but beer, sex, and how to play pranks on the others on their mind (in other the world, genre-typical cannon-fodder), so it's an easy thing for Bruha to lure them away one after the other to kill them, which somehow helps to reanimate the mummy of the high priest.

Finally, the high priest is up to full force again, and he immediately continues the sacrificial cereemony to gain himself immortality. Now by that time all of Langley's students but Viola are already dead, and Viola is laid out on the high priest's sacrificial table, but Langley's still alive, and he beats up Bruja but good before going after the high priest and giving him a beating as well. Then the temple starts to crumble, and the high priest falls into a pit that leads right to hell. Langley and Viola make it out though - but is Viola already possessed ...


Bruno Mattei isn't exactly the man who enjoys the best of reputations in the horror community (and that's putting it mildly), but at times, he was able to direct a quite decent horror flick ... this however was not one of these times.

Basically, The Tomb is a cash-in on Stephen Sommers' The Mummy and its sequels that also throws elements from Karl Freund's original Mummy starring Boris Karloff and scenes copied from films like The Exorcist and From Dusk 'till Dawn into the mix while making sure the whole thing never amounts to anything more than a brainless teen slasher, plotwise. The outcome is pretty bad and not at all helped by a below-average ensemble and a director who just doesn't seem to get a proper handle on his story.

To put it bluntly, a film that's certainly not worth your time and money!
