The Mummy’s Ghost (1944)

REGINALD LE BORG

Bil’s rating (out of 5):   BB

After The Mummy’s Tomb, the evil mummy Kharis ( in excellent makeup) returns to New England with a deranged priest () who wants to get revenge on the people for their treatment of his beloved monster. Same old boring stuff, with women screaming and doctors feeling confounded until someone with a heavy accent comes along and explains everything. It’s not as good as its predecessor (which isn’t that good in the first place), but does feature an interesting twist in its finale that gives it a special place in campy B-movie history.
