Storyline

An X-ray machine reveals the presence of a corpse in an Egyptian sarcophagus. It is not that of the ancient high priest. Instead the body is that of the archaeologist who was thought to be on a trip to the Upper Nile, but is now found murdered. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

Trivia

The eleventh of forty-seven Charlie Chan movies, and eighth of sixteen starring Warner Oland. See more »

Goofs

The plot revolves around items from the tomb of a high priest of Sekhmet, and the statue of Sekhmet, which are found in the tomb itself. Although Sekhmet was indeed the goddess of revenge, she was not a mortuary goddess. The writers may have confused Sekhmet with Selket, who *was* a mortuary goddess. See more »

Quotes

Professor John Thurston: [angrily] Why didn't you warn us? Your carelessness is responsible for that boy's death!
Charlie Chan: Most regretful. Impossible to prepare defense unless direction of attack is known.

Great horror-mystery!
16 April 2000 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Warner Oland does it again with a great performance as Chan. This one also has a great setting and creepy atmosphere. It is set at a newly excavated Egyptian tomb with all the trappings. There are some genuinely scary sequences creeping around the tomb at night. A young Rita Hayworth (billed as Rita Cansino) has a small part. The only drawback for me is the stereotyped portrayal by Stephin Fechit. He is hard to understand and very annoying at times. The performances by Mantan Moreland and Willie Best in the much later Monogram Chans serve the same niche as Fechit's "Snowshoes" character, but come off much better and are funny in the same way Lou Costello or Curly Howard are funny. But this does not harm the picture. Another one to see over and over again just for the atmosphere if nothing else.
