The Mummy’s Curse (1944)

I watched the 1944 classic, The Mummy’s Curse on Svengoolie. It is good and with the Sven extras, fun to watch again. I give it 2.7 out of 5 stars.

[From WikipediaThe Mummy’s Curse is a 1944 American horror film and the fifth entry in Universal Pictures‘ original Mummy franchise. It marks Lon Chaney, Jr.‘s final appearance as Kharis, the Egyptian mummy.

The action of this film, which continues the story of Kharis and his beloved Princess Ananka, is supposed to take place in the same swampy location that was the setting of The Mummy’s Ghost.

But while the earlier movie was explicitly set in rural Massachusetts, this film strongly implies that the swamp is in Louisiana, with references to Cajuns and bayous. Furthermore, if one follows the continuity of the “Kharis” series, this film would have to take place in the late 1990s.
