With a sub-barrel-bottomed budget, this Mexican horror outing features wicked old Dr. Krupp, a.k.a. "The Bat", the crazed experimenter who caused trouble in this film's two predecessors, The Aztec Mummy
and Curse of the Aztec Mummy
(both 1957), up to his old tricks. As in the former features, he is again trying to trick the Aztec mummy Popoca into leaving his crypt so the bad doctor can get at the treasure within. This time his scheme entails the invention of the title tin man (complete with incandescent light-bulb ears), a device he equips with a human brain. A horrific battle ensues when the two monsters collide.
