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 »
Although this is typical of the era, it's still wrong: When Ananka rises out of the swamp, she goes into a pond to wash off the dried mud. Afterwards, her hair is perfectly coiffed and her face is completely made up: plucked and penciled eyebrows, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascaraed eyelashes and of course lipstick. 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.
