Trivia

In a 1995 interview with TV host Skip E. Lowe, actor Turhan Bey (Mehemet Bey) cited this film as his favorite particularly because he loved playing his character. See more »

Goofs

George Zucco confirms that while it didn't kill him (being set afire at the end of The Mummy's Hand), it "maimed and distorted" the mummy, which neatly explains why Lon Chaney looks nothing like Tom Tyler, it does not explain why the wrappings on Chaney's mummy are not even singed. See more »

Quotes

Mehemet Bey: The moon rides high in the sky again, Kharis; there's death in the night air. Your work begins.

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?
