Storyline

A collection of artifacts from an archeological dig in Egypt are brought to the famous Louvre museum in Paris, and while experts are using a laser scanning device to determine the age of a sarcophagus, a ghostly spirit escapes and makes its way into the museum's electrical system. Museum curator Faussier (Jean-Francois Balmer) brings in a noted Egyptologist, Glenda Spencer, to examine the findings, and she announces that the mummy inside the coffin was actually the evil spirit Belphegor. Lisa, who lives across the street from the museum, follows her runaway cat into the museum after closing time, where she is accidentally given a shock that sends the stray spirit into her body. Soon, Lisa is disguising herself as Belphegor and making off with the rare Egyptian treasures on display at the museum, convinced that they are rightfully hers. When "Belphegor" proves more than a match for the Louvre's security forces, renowned detective Verlac is brought out of retirement to find out why the ... Written by Anonymous

a missed adaptation of a cult tv serie
2 May 2003 | by (france) – See all my reviews

Before to be this movie, Belphegor was a novel and a movie (1926) and a tv serie (1965). The producers have done the same disaster that others did with "the avengers" or "wild wild west". Belphegor reminds more "the mummy" (1999) than the novel or the tv serie. Only the Bruno Coulais soundtrack can be saved, and some apparitions of the egyptian ghost in the museeum of Louvre. The ghost in the original version was a woman, here it is really a phantom. Belphegor could have been more suspenful, but lacks of time to create fear and emotion. the script is weak, yet the idea of an egyptian mummy was not bad at all. The tv serie in 1965 was not shot at the louvre (but in studio), this one though having the benefice of the museum, is missed. Some exciting scenes are not enough to do a movie.
