The Mummy (1911): Mummy Fest

Welcome to Mummy Fest – A collection of everything I have related to ancient Egyptians walking the Earth. From The Mummy (1911) to The Scorpion King (2008). A History of Classic Monsters: Mummies by John Gaines states that although mummies were created by one of oldest civilizations in history their development into demonic monsters is largely a 20th century construct. Bram Stoker of Dracula fame wrote a story about an evil mummy in “The Jewel of the Seven Stars” 1903.

Carl Laemmle Jr. commissioned a plot for a movie based on the opening of King Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922. This became The Mummy (1932) starring Boris Karloff and it set the bar high for all future mummy movies.

I have assembled a little list of movies by Universal, Hammer, and others that follow The Mummy (1932) line. They are: The Mummy’s Hand (1940), The Mummy’s Tomb (1942), The Mummy’s Ghost (1944), The Mummy’s Curse (1944), Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955), The Mummy (1959), The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb (1964), The Mummy’s Shroud (1966), Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb (1971), The Mummy (1999), The Mummy Returns (2001), The Scorpion King (2002), The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior (2008), The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008), The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption (2012), and of the crap that was made later. One day I hope to review all of these movies and place them under a mummy theme.

  • The Mummy’s Curse (1944) Classic Movie Review 130

      Today’s movie is The Mummy’s Curse (1944). This is the third time that Long Chaney Jr. played the mummy.

  • Boris Karloff – King of the Monsters

    I don’t think I will get much argument if I say that Boris Karloff was the greatest Frankenstein of them all. Although Peter Boyle was pretty good.

He made some silent films… Continue reading The post Boris Karloff – King of the Monsters appeared first on . […]
