7 Mummies is a mix of Con Air, Mummy, and Night of the Living Dead. The plot, without giving too much away, involves a group of prisoners being transported across the desert. The convicts escape, taking a guard hostage, and set out across the treacherous desert trying to get to Mexico. Along the way, the come across a set of clue and a crazy old man- both of which point to a ghost town and more gold than can be spent in several lifetimes. The only caveat is between the ninja mummies, the vampire hookers, and crazy cowboys, there is no guess on just how long they'll be able to live...
This movie really is just a fun, brainless bit of thrill. It could have easily received 5 stars (especially for being a direct to DVD production), but the first 20 minutes of the movie is painfully slow, and the last two minutes feel tacked on. The movie could have benefited from additional editing. I know it is already a short movie- less than 80 minutes, but I would rather have watched a 60 minute version cut a little cleaner--- think Masters of Horror.
Aside from needing a bit more editing, this movie is just a great horror movie, the kind you watch when you want to smile and not think for a while-- definitely not the kind you watch when you really want to be scared.
Recommended for all of those into B horror, and zombie fun.
