One of the many Mummy movies made after Boris Karloff immortalized the role, featuring as the horrible monster. A vengeful Egyptian priest brings a sarcophagus with the mummy in it to a New England museum in order to unleash its fury upon its residents, most notably an archaeologist who years before with his team had defiled the creature’s tomb. Hilarious and corny, its short running time reveals its B-movie status if nothing else does. Rent the whole series and stay up late watching them, they’re fun!
