The Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy (1957) is a Mexican film that blended the elements of science fiction and horror. The plot can be easily summarized in the film's tagline: "See the relentless machine battle the gruesome corpse." The alternative title for this film was Aztec Mummy vs. the Human Robot. The film was directed by Rafael Portillo and starred Ramon Gay and Rosa Arenas. Most notably, the film was also the movie featured on a 1989 episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. The film is the sequel to The Aztec Mummy and The Curse of the Aztec Mummy, both released earlier that year, and a large portion of the film consists of an extended recap of the first two entries in the series.


The evil Dr. Krupp (Luis Aceves Castañeda), also known as "The Bat", plots to steal a valuable Aztec treasure from the tomb of a centuries-old living mummy, Popoca (Angel di Stefani). Krupp builds a robot to defeat the mummy. Krupp's former colleague Dr. Eduardo Almada (Ramon Gay) and associates work to stop the mad scientist.
