Grave Robbers {1989}

NR 1 hr 28 mins Horror

In Spanish colonial times, the leader of a satanic sect is condemned to eternal damnation — left to rot with an axe forever embedded in his chest. Centuries later, a band of lusty teenage treasure-seeking graverobbers accidentally dislodge the axe and awaken the diabolical killer, who sets out to complete his unholy mission of spawning the son of Satan! Heavily inspired by late-period slashers, Ruben Galindo Jr’s GRAVE ROBBERS (made one year after his staggering achievement DON’T PANIC) is one of the best films yet to be restored from Mexico’s oft-overlooked horror boom. With exceptional production value, gruesome kills and a relentless killer, GRAVE ROBBERS is right at home with any later FRIDAY THE 13TH sequel.
