The Mummy is one of the most recognizable figures in horror and is as established in the popular imagination as virtually any other monster, yet the Mummy on screen has until now remained a largely overlooked figure in critical analysis of the cinema. In this compelling new study, Basil Glynn explores the history of the Mummy film, uncovering lost and half-forgotten movies along the way, revealing the cinematic Mummy to be an astonishingly diverse and protean figure with a myriad of on-screen incarnations. In the course of investigating the enduring appeal of this most 'Oriental' of monsters, Glynn traces the Mummy's development on screen from its roots in popular culture and silent cinema, through Universal Studios' Mummy movies of the 1930s and 40s, to Hammer Horror's re-imagining of the figure in the 1950s, and beyond.

Any on-screen schmuck can take down a wolfman with a silver bullet. It takes a certain kind of hero to hoist that wolfman overhead into an airplane spin, follow with a body slam, drop an atomic elbow across his mangy neck, leg-lock him until he howls, and pin his furry back to the mat for a three-count. It takes a Mexican masked wrestler. Add a few half-naked vampire women, Aztec mummies, mad scientists, evil midgets from space, and a goateed Frankenstein monster, and you have just some of the elements of Mexican masked wrestler and monster movies, certainly among the most bizarre, surreal and imaginative films ever produced. This filmography features some of the oddest cinematic showdowns ever concocted—Mexican masked wrestlers battling monsters, evil geniuses and other ne’er-do-wells, be it in caves, cobwebbed castles or in the ring. From the 1950s to the 1970s, these movies were staples of Mexican cinema, combining action, horror, sex, science fiction and comedy into a bizarre amalgam aimed to please the whole family. Chapters examine the roots of the phenomenon, including the hugely popular masked wrestling scene and the classic Universal horror films from which Mexican filmmakers stole without compunction. Subsequent chapters focus on El Santo, Blue Demon, and Mil Mascaras, the three most prominent masked wrestlers; wrestling women; other less prominent masked wrestlers; and the insane mish-mash of monsters pitted against the heroes. Each chapter includes background information and a full filmography, and a wide assortment of striking illustrations—posters, lobby cards and other graphic material, some better than the movies they advertised—accompany the text.

Mexploitation Cinema

Thanks in large part to an exploitation film producer and distributor named K. Gordon Murray, a unique collection of horror films from Mexico began to appear on American late-night television and drive-in screens in the 1960s. Ranging from monster movies clearly owing to the heyday of Universal Studios to the lucha libre horror films featuring El Santo and the “Wrestling Women,” these low-budget “Mexploitation” films offer plenty of campy fun and still inspire cult devotion, yet they also reward close study in surprising ways. This work places Mexploitation films in their historical and cultural context and provides close textual readings of a representative sample, showing how they can be seen as important documents in the cultural debate over Mexico’s past, present and future. Stills accompany the text, and a selected filmography and bibliography complete the volume.

La Universidad de La Rioja organiza el Congreso Internacional 'Imagines. La Antigüedad en las artes escénicas y visuales' que tendrá lugar del 22 al 24 de octubre. Este encuentro científico reunirá a expertos académicos de diversos campus de España, Italia, Alemania, Inglaterra y Francia en torno al legado artístico y cultural del mundo antiguo. Desde el siglo XVII, la Antigüedad se convirtió en un modelo a seguir, en una escuela de virtud pública y privada, tesoro de preceptos morales y personajes ejemplares. Esta circunstancia ha abierto una línea de investigación, todavía minoritaria, como es la 'Recepción' de la Antigüedad en ámbitos tan variados como la política, el derecho, el arte, la literatura. El Congreso Internacional 'Imagines. La Antigüedad en las artes escénicas y visuales' se entronca en esta línea de investigación. A lo largo de tres jornadas, del 22 al 24 de octubre, el programa académico se desarrollará en torno a tres ejes principales: el legado de la Antigüedad en las Artes Escénicas (Teatro, Cine y Opera); en las Artes Visuales (Arquitectura, Escultura, Pintura y Artes Decorativas); y el uso didáctico en los niveles de enseñanza secundaria y superior para mostrar la actualidad de "lo antiguo"
