Mummy's Curse, The (1944)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Twenty-five years after the events of the previous film, the swampy locations of Louisiana are about to be drained, which doesn't sit well with some locals who know that Kharis (Lon Chaney, Jr.) is resting there. This doesn't stop anything so the swamp is drained and soon the mummy is set loose. Once again we're treated to a 61-minute movie that goes by pretty fast but the story is rather weak, which is to be expected. I'm not sure what new things they could have tried with the series but the locations of Louisiana do make for some interesting moments. The bodies being revealed in the swamp are certainly a highlight as is the ending that manages to pack a small punch. The supporting cast this time out is rather weak with no one really sticking out or catching ones eye. Chaney is back in his third and final film in the series and manages a good performance but he isn't given too much to do.
