The Tomb
USA, 1985

Cameron Mitchell, John Carradine, David Pearson
Directed by Fred Olen


Archaeologist John Banning is in Egypt when he learns of a recently discovered tomb, that of Nefratis, a blood-hungry ancient princess. He and a guide visit the tomb, whereupon Nefratis rises from the dead and angrily snaps off the guide's head. Luckily, Banning manages to escape with artifacts in tow. In America, he sells them to several collectors. However Nefratis appears, still angry, and uses ancient Egyptian magic to make Banning her slave. She then kills one of the collectors, whose son vows to uncover the truth. He seeks Nefratis, while the ancient princess seeks the artifact, killing everyone who gets in her way. (source:
