Four beautiful American models travel to a remote village on the edge of the Sahara to shoot a fashion layout for a top magazine. Here they stumble upon a soldier of fortune who has violated the lost tomb of the murderous tyrant Pharaoh, Safiraman. Their photographer decides to shoot the layout amid the mysterious splendours of the tomb. Unknown to them, they evoke an ancient and unstoppable curse to 'rise and kill'. The ghastly remains of Safiraman and his army of the living dead wreak unspeakable vengeance on the intruders and the local people. Decapitation, disembowelling and flesh eating are part of a nightmare of terror which reaches its unthinkable climax at the wedding celebrations of a Bedouin village.
