When Albert attempts to question the victim, the man cries out, "The eyes are alive!" Disregarding the warning, Albert visits the tomb; there he meets Radu, an Egyptian who offers to give him a tour. When Wendland sees the living eyes (actually a person standing behind a door), he attempts to open the door but Radu tries to stand in his way. In the ensuing struggle Radu is shot. Behind the door Albert finds the frightened Ma, the same girl he saw fetching water; she tells how she was abducted by Radu and made his slave. Albert takes her with him to Europe. In the meanwhile, Prince Hohenfels finds the wounded Radu in the desert and takes him to Europe as well. Radu vows to find Ma, who is currently living with Wendland and performing as a dancer for a variety show. It is only a matter of time before Radu spots her and plans for a fateful confrontation.

The Mummy
USA, 1932

Boris Karloff, Zita Johann, David Manners
Directed by Karl Freund


"It comes to life!"

In 1921 a British Museum field expedition in Egypt discovers the mummy of ancient Egyptian prince Imhotep, who was condemned and buried alive for sacrilege. Also found in the tomb is the Scroll of Thoth, which can bring the dead back to life. Unknown with the possible effects, a young and naïve member of the expedition reads the scroll and thus unwillingly brings Imhotep back to life. Years later the mummy sets out to recover the scroll from the archaeologists in order to bring his lost love back to life, an ancient princess who's soul will be reincarnated into modern young woman… the daughter of one of the archaeologists.

This film is considered to be the 'mother' of all mummy films. Fresh and different in its approach of the theme, it paved the way for all later movies about an expedition finding a tomb, awakening the cursed mummy inside, which then sets off to seek revenge. Based on the short story "Cagliostro" by Nina Wilcox Putnam, which was inspired by the life of traveller, occultist and Freemason Count Alessandro di Cagliostro (Giuseppe Balsamo; 1743-1795).

Directed by Del Lord

The Mummy's Hand
USA, 1940

Tom Tyler, Dick Foran, Wallace Ford, George Zucco, Peggy Moran
Directed by Christy Cabanne


"Tomb of a thousand terrors!"

Archaeologists in Egypt discover evidence of the hidden burial place of the ancient Egyptian princess Ananka. With funding from an eccentric magician and his beautiful daughter they set out to find the tomb, but accidentally discover doomed Kharis's tomb first. An Egyptian priest who vowed to guard the princess' mummy takes control of the awakened Kharis to kill the party members off one by one.

This first film in a series of Kharis films is by far the best, though it is heavily grounded on story and pictorial material from the original 1932 Mummy film with Boris Karloff. It is often forgotten that in this film not Lon Chaney Jr, but actually Tom Tyler plays the first Kharis. It was his tall and impressive posture that probably won him this role. Tyler was an exceptional athlete who held the American weightlifting title for fourteen consecutive years. He even attended the 1928 Olympics. He was, however, foremost a star in western movies and the Captain Marvel series. He would not continue roles in the horror genre.

Frank Braña
Directed by Alejandro Martí


Despite the title, the mummy in this film does not look Egyptian with his longish black hair, golden quarter shirt and matching skirt. He appears more like an Aztec or other Central/South American Native priest. He's also not bandaged like the traditional Universal Pictures mummies, but rather perfectly preserved when brought to a mad Egyptologist. The scientist uses an a-typical electrical stimulation device to revive the mummy. The very first action the mummy takes is to suck the blood of a wound the doctor's brutish assistant has just suffered. The rest of the film is basically a series of recapitulations. See the mummy torture a beautiful peasant woman with a hot poker, sexually molest her, suck her bloodless and send out for the next victim… Alternate titles for this film: "Love Brides of the Blood Mummy" (USA) and "Perversions sexuelles" or "Le Sang des autres" (both France).

The Doctor foils this plan by blowing up the missile. He then falls under Sutekh's control himself and is made to transport Scarman to Mars in the TARDIS. Scarman cuts off the signal but the Doctor, now freed of Sutekh's influence, realises that there will be a short delay before it ceases to have effect, owing to the time taken for it to reach Earth. He rushes back and uses the time control from the TARDIS to move the end of the space-time tunnel that links the priory to the Egyptian pyramid into the far future. Sutekh, travelling down the tunnel, is unable to reach the end in his lifetime, and dies. (source: BBC)

The Egyptian princess Anuket commands Hercules to help her find a stolen mummy. First he refuses, but when he learns that the mummy has awakened and is hungry for human life, he changes his mind. Also on the mummy's trails is the renegade priest Sokar, who hopes to unleash its powers and use them to become pharaoh of Egypt. Sokar seizes the mummy from merchant Salmoneus, along with a pendant known as an ankh that gives him control of the creature. Knowing the mummy will become unstoppable once it consumes the life force of a human, Sokar turns it loose on Hercules. The son of Zeus traps the mummy in a tomb and riddles it with spikes, but this proves only a temporary setback to a creature already dead. After Hercules rescues Anuket from Sokar, the mummy reappears, kills Sokar, and absorbs the priest's life force. It now threatens to become all-powerful, but Hercules literally unravels this scheme as he grabs one end of the mummy's wrappings and gives a mighty yank, causing the creature to spin furiously before tumbling into a vat of boiling wax. Anuket, grateful to Hercules and to a slave who gave his life for hers, promises that on returning to Egypt she will work to free all slaves.

But I’d like to do a complete reworking and make a huge popcorn movie".
