During all this weirdness starts like scorpions appearing, snakes and piles of sand.  We learn that the voyages actually go to the desert in Egypt and that the amulet holds the secret of an ancient evil.

We have a mystery in our hands with this one, lots of dream like sequences and symbols of Egypt. Not much gore or little red blood in this one but instead focusing on the ancient writings and context of Egypt and the curse of the blue eye jewel

Rating: The story is not horrible but at the same time it is not one of Lucio Fulci stronger films. Plus we have that annoying kid from The House by the Cemetery  Giovanni Frezza but the sound and music is so Lucio Fulci. Drink to all the blue lighting used in this film or chug to each view of a snake on the screen to enjoy.
