Reviews call this film one of Fulci's worst films, using phrases like "an impenetrable mess" and "uninspired." Even the liner notes on the Anchor Bay release say that the film "doesn't add up." Woah boy — that would put off anyone else. But me? I'm excited to dig in. Get it? Dig in.
Susie Hacker is in Egypt with her archaeologist father, George (Christopher Connelly, The Norseman, 1990: The Bronx Warriors, the Payton Place TV series), and journalist mother, Emily (Martha Taylor, better known as Laura Lenzi, who was in The Adventures of Hercules II) when a blind woman gives her an amulet. Just as she takes it, her father is blinded while he enters a previously unexplored tomb (but not before he shoots the snake).
They return to New York City, where we meet Susie's younger brother, Tommy (Giovanni Frezza, Bob from House by the Cemetery), who didn't go on the trip, and au pair Jamie Lee (boy, naming a babysitter Jamie Lee is in no way a coincidence, right? She's played by Cinzia de Ponti from New York Ripper). Susie and Tommy have somehow gained supernatural powers from the amulet (Susie could speak telepathically to her mother before she left Egypt). And laser beams blast George's eyes, giving him back his vision.
Check out this brother and sister interaction, Tommy's introduction to the film. Also, if you're wondering why a little boy is dubbed with the voice of a small girl, then you've never watched a Fulci film before.
