Maya (1989) Review

Maya – Directed by Marcello Avallone

In this seldom seen 1989 spaghetti horror, Americans living in a shithole Mexican town unleash a long-dead pissed-off Mayan by staring into a mirror. The mirror being a portal to the land of the dead, or some such bullshit. Co-starring Mariangélica Ayala, whose character is the perfect balance of sexy and crazy. Her beautiful naked body is the highlight of the film. Round out MAYA with some cockfighting and a voodoo exorcism, and you still just end up with a mediocre Italian horror flick. I guess sometimes films are seldom seen for a reason. For Italian horror completists only.
