This third film in the "Kharis" series is one of the better efforts, thanks to a new storyline centering on the reincarnation of the mummy's lover into the body of a modern-day woman.
John Carradine is on hand as the high priest who revives Kharis (Lon Chaney for a second time) and supplies him with tana fluid to keep him stalking. This chapter also features Chaney's best performance as Kharis, and you can definitely see his looks of sadness, frustration, and anger in key scenes.
Ramsay Ames and Robert Lowery are weak as the leads, and they bring the evaluation of the movie down a notch.
An easy 60 minutes of classic fun from Universal.
