Seven Mummies is a 2006 action horror film directed by Nick Quested about six escaped convicts struggling to make it to the Mexican border. After a car collides with their prisoner transport van, the convicts take a beautiful prison guard, Lacy (Cerina Vincent), as their hostage as they escape into the Arizona desert. While traversing the desert, the men uncover a strange golden medallion covered in arcane symbols and reach the home of an old Apache man (Danny Trejo) who offers them a choice: directions to Mexico or where to find a hidden Spanish horde of gold. With the men's greedier nature overcoming common sense, the men choose to pursue the treasure, leading them to a strange and abandoned town, where a dark sheriff, Drake (Billy Drago), presides over a population of unspeakable horrors. While the men discover wealth beyond reason, none may survive the onslaught of supernatural guardians whose sole purpose is to protect the gold against thieves.
