The flashback sequence features footage of Boris Karloff and Tom Tyler from earlier films--thus Kharis is actually played by three different actors (more if stunt doubles are included). 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 »
There is still life in this curse, barely. The premise has ran its course. Too many familiar scenes and the thrill is just hanging on. This although is still creepy to watch and fun for a rainy night. The living mummy Kharis(Lon Chaney Jr)now seeks his lost love(Virginia Christine) in the bayous of Louisiana. Also notable are Kurt Katch and Jackie Lou Harding. A "mummy" fan's must.
