An "off-beat" Mummy film
28 May 1999 | by (S. Bound Brook, NJ) – See all my reviews

This entry in the "Mummy series" is unlike all the others, but that's what makes it interesting!

One of THE most interesting sequences in this film is when the Princess awakens in the bog (due to the sunlight), and slowly rises to her feet, totally covered with mud, and staggers to town. A very dramatic scene!
