I think this movie itself is the curse!
15 January 2002 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

Star Anthony Eisley once said the director of this film was "quite old and a little bit senile at the time"; yeah but you signed the contract anyway, didn't you Anthony! The story goes that the film was unfinished and sat on a shelf for quite sometime before someone scotch taped the scenes together into something that bore a resemblance to a feature film. That could explain why it begins in the middle with Anthony Eisley as an archaeologist renting a tumbledown house outside Las Vegas with two sarcophagii in his living room. We are told that he saved them both from a plane that was on its way back from Egypt but crashed nearby. The centuries old boxes contain Princess Akanna, a woman put into a deep sleep in ancient Egypt so that she might someday revive and bring the glorious message of the Goddess Isis to a modern world. Along for the ride is her guardian Sirakh, who looks considerably worse than she does after 3,000 years. (Has anyone besides me noticed their names are "Ananka" and "Kharis" re-arranged?) Akanna revives and turns Eisley into a "jackalman" so he can better be her slave. The mask and three fingered paw/hands had been used earlier that year in the Adults Only movie DRACULA THE DIRTY OLD MAN. (Way back in 1960 Boris Karloff said the old monsters were no longer scary. This movie proves him right. There is the inevitable scene of the Mummy and the Jackalman fighting and this scene was shot on location in Las Vegas. Eisley, or his stunt double, and the Mummy do their best to be fierce but people on the street stare at them and laugh!) John Carradine shows up for two scenes to (A.) pick up some quick pocket money and (B.) explain what is going on for everyone who is confused. You will probably stay confused though until the end of the picture where events come to their predictable conclusion even though everything happens with little or no explanation. John Carradine and Anthony Eisley went on to top themselves in modern Poverty Row pictures. Long John starred as THE WIZARD OF MARS and Anthony fought half a giant gorilla (it's a long story!) in THE MIGHTY GORGA.
