    • Synopsis
    • Previously titled AMERICAN MUMMY, AZTEC BLOOD was directed by Charles Pinion, whose previous movies include RED SPIRIT LAKE and WE AWAIT, from a script he wrote with producer Greg Salman. The cast is headed by Suziey Block, Aidan Bristow, Aaron Burt, Esther Canata, Erin Condry, Rudy Marquez and Peter Marr; according to the official synopsis, the film is “set in an archaeological dig in the New Mexico desert, where a group of university students unearth a mummy wearing a fearsome mask made out of a human skull. Carmen [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. The camp and its occupants are soon filled with the blood-hungry spirit of Tezcalipoca, intent on spreading his evil to the world.”
