Count Alucard (read his name backwards) finds his way from Budapest to the swamps of the Deep South; his four nemeses are a medical doctor, a university professor, a jilted fiancé and the woman he loves.
Lon Chaney Jr.,
The Mummy (1932) was set in 1932, the year of its release. The first sequel, The Mummy's Hand (1940) is also chronologically coherent, set in 1940. The Mummy's Tomb (1942) takes place 30 years following the events of "Hand", with The Mummy's Ghost (1944) approximately two years after that. We learn that this movie is set an additional 25 years after "Ghost", meaning that the events take place around 1997. See more »
The previous installment, The Mummy's Ghost, ended with Kharis and Ananka sinking into a marshy swamp in Massachusetts. Approximately 25 years later, while draining a swampy Louisiana bayou, Kharis and Ananka are freed from their muddy tomb, allowing Kharis to resume his reign of terror among the bayou dwelling Cajuns. It is never explained how the swamp, containing the Mummies, was moved from Massachusetts to Louisiana over the passing years. See more »
Even in America we're not safe as bulldozers unearth the ancient Egyptian mummy and his favorite obsession, Princess Ananka
Kharis is on the loose again. Of course, being on the loose for this mummified foot-dragger means he's a danger only to those too dumb to run. Fortunately, these movies are loaded with slow-learners. Actually, this is one of the better of the series, with lots of shadowy atmosphere and a really nubile Mrs. Folger otherwise known as Princess Ananka (Virginia Christine). No wonder Kharis is so anxious to carry her off, especially in that flowing white gown. I'd trade for his bandages and gimpy foot any day. And catch her rising jerkily from the swamp. These moves are enough to make you doubt whether she's human or not.
Too bad the rest of the cast seems at times to be sleep walking, except for Addison Richards (Maj. Walsh) and Kay Harding (Betty) who manage some lively personality. Peter Coe is a particularly unfortunate choice as the high priest. He sounds about as scary and exotic as my next-door neighbor. But who cares. It's old tangle foot and the moody gloom that keeps fans like me tuned in.
