Mummy on the move.
8 November 2000 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

A resurrected wrapped monster goes on a murdering binge. A lunatic is seeking revenge against living members of a previous expedition. Universal seems to be running out of wrapping as well as new ideas. Most of the budget was probably spent on Lon Chaney Jr. to star as Kharis, the Mummy.

Other players are George Zucco, Wallace Ford, Turhan Bey, Dick Foran and Elyse Knox.

How much longer can this madness continue?
