The aftermath of "The Lost Empire" is even eerier than the film, because a startling number of the picture's principals have since died. "Angela Aames died of a heart attack reportedly caused by alcohol and cocaine (speed balls) [in 1988]. She was a beautiful girl, and very nice. I think she was troubled because she was becoming popular for something she didn't consider valuable, her sex appeal. She didn't appreciate herself enough."
