Professor Doug McCadden is in charge of opening his university's latest acquisition - a sealed Egyptian sarcophagus. Opening it reveals an ancient mummy and a mold substance which proves to eat the flesh of anyone touching it. Later, sneaky student Pete Sharpe finds five hidden jewels in the bottom of the casket and distributes them to various co-eds on campus, not realizing the mummy, recently revived with an overdose of x-rays, is bound and determined to reclaim them. McCadden, who has carefully analyzed x-rays taken of the mummy, comes to the reluctant conclusion that it is not what it seems. Written by

Bill is holding the crystal necklace in one hand when the mummy sneaks up on him, swipes the necklace, and kills him by hurling him into a wall. However, in the scene in Suzy's hospital room, Dr. Melrose says that "according to the coroner", Bill was wearing the necklace when he died. See more »
Overall good film, but what happened to the sequel?
I enjoyed this film, being into science fiction, but have seen both versions. The video ends with a caption to be continued. TV version had cut the last 5-10 minutes from the film and changed the ending, which lost its perspective.
I would however, like to see if the sequel has been produced, by Video Guild
apparently they have bought the rights to this one. Any word of this
being produced. Let me know.
