The Threat of the Mummy
USA, 2002

Darin Kerr, Dawn Kidle, Paul Kelly, Sarah Davis
Directed by Christopher P. Jacobs

A small Midwestern university’s collection of antiquities has been all but ignored, until a graduate student wins approval to unwrap an ancient Egyptian mummy for her dissertation. Events heat up when her plan provokes extremists to steal the body in protest, causing national news media to descend on the town. Then a clandestine attempt to perform the ancient funeral liturgy unwittingly brings the mummy back to life—revealing secrets lost for two millennia and unleashing a threat no one ever imagined.

Low-budget horror movie, heavy on the camp melodrama. Christopher P. Jacobs produced and directed The Threat of the Mummy on digital video from his own script, as well as photographing and editing the production.
