Do You Want to Find Hell With Me?

An ancient Egyptian priest called Imhotep (Boris Karloff) is revived when an archaeological expedition in 1921, led by Sir Joseph Whemple (Arthur Byron), finds Imhotep's mummy. Imhotep had been mummified alive for attempting to resurrect his forbidden lover, the princess Ankh-es-en-amon. His friend, Dr. Muller (Edward Van Sloan) inspects the mummy and exclaims “The viscera were not removed. The usual scar made by the embalmers knife is not there.” Sir Joseph Wimple responds, “I suspected as much.” Despite Muller's warning, Sir Joseph's assistant Ralph Norton (Bramwell Fletcher) reads aloud an ancient life-giving scroll – the Scroll of Thoth. Imhotep escapes from the archaeologists, taking the Scroll of Thoth, and prowls Cairo seeking the modern reincarnation of Ankh-es-en-amon.

10 years later, Imhotep is masquerading as a modern Egyptian named Ardath Bey. He calls upon Sir Joseph's son Frank (David Manners) and Prof. Pearson (Leonard Mudie). He shows them where to dig to find Ankh-es-en-amon's tomb. The archaeologists find the tomb, give the mummy and the treasures to the Cairo Museum, and thank Ardath Bey for the information.

Imhotep encounters Helen Grosvenor (Zita Johann), a woman bearing a striking resemblance to the Princess. Believing her to be Ankh-es-en-amon's reincarnation, he attempts to kill her, with the intention of mummifying her, resurrecting her, and making her his bride. She is saved when she remembers her past life and prays to the goddess Isis to save her. The statue of Isis raises its arm and emits a beam of light that destroys the Scroll of Thoth, thereby reducing Imhotep to dust. Frank calls Helen back to the world of the living while the Scroll of Thoth burns.

  1. I already know where Hell is, thanks. Plan to avoid it.
    Imhotep is a popular mummy for movies, isn't he?

  2. Imhotep shows up in a few movies and books. He's scary in all of them.
    Ordered a tee-shirt yesterday.

  3. The Mummy is such a wonderfully creepy old monster, so I hope he finds new life in the movies again. Thanks for the retrospective Jeremy!

  4. I have not seen this film since I was a kid but I love it. I love the poster and the way Karloff is presented

  5. thanks, but no thanks... I was thrown out of it long time ago... they do not want me back....

  6. That original poster was a killer one! I always loved THE MUMMY. In my latest Victor Standish novel, CARNIVAL OF THE DAMNED, Victor ends up in a cursed carnival where the mummy-child, Princess Shert Nebti, stalks the midway at night ... horrors ensue. Funny, I just bought a DVD of that movie to watch, remembering the shivers it gave me as a child. :-)
