RATHER HUMOROUS, BUT OFTEN IN A BAD WAY.

"Wow...look it's Bruce Boxleitner, I've heard of him. And it's Zach Galligan from Gremlins. Hey, a low budget horror film with a couple of actors you've actually heard of...can't be bad right? Well hold on there Pilgrim, lets not go that far. We have to make the assumption that these two guys really...REALLY needed a paycheck. Legion of the dead isn't horrible..but it's far from passable either. I mean there's some pretty good hokey fun although I think much of it may be unintentional..or maybe it wasn't and I'm not giving them enough credit. It's certainly pretty cheesy though. If you can buy the ludicrous plot of an ancient Egyptian burial ground being found in the L.A. Mountains then give yourself a pat on the back. That's certainly the dumbest element to the plot. Galligan is an archaeologist who goes to investigate the tomb and finds the sarcophagus of a mummy queen who of course is revived and goes on a rampage by bringing mummy hordes to life ala "The Mummy" of a few years ago. Claudia Lynx, who plays the mummy queen is fairly attractive and that is one good feature of the film. As a cheesy, schlocky film it's OK. But it's certainly NOT a horror film per se...there's nothing remotely terrifying in it. It's like a Sci-Fi Channel film."
A decent time waster.

"If you have a fondness for silly, low-budget horror flicks, you may want to check this one out. A team of archeaology students find an Egyptian tomb in the woods of America! (Don't worry, there is an explanation.) They end up resurrecting a princess who proceeds to pick them off one by one.
If you watch a lot of horror films, you'll know what to expect. There's nudity, gore, bad dialouge. Still, this would be a fun one to watch on a rainy day. A guilty pleasure with a place of honor in my DVD library."
One for Mystery Science Theater 2000.

"The only thing missing in this film was the sillouete of one human, a talking gumball machine and vaccumm cleaner in the front row cracking jokes throughout the movie. I enjoy semi-bad "B" movies but then there is this monstrosity. This film is so bad, you will have to watch it with a few buddies (and a pound of drinks) to get any joy out of it at all. This maybe the worst movie I've seen in 20 years. Move along quickly and don't make eye contact..."
