Storyline

Six archeology students are spending the summer at an isolated rural compound with their college professor, working on an exciting discovery: an ancient mummy, found in the ruins of a temple. Little do they realize that the mummy was the servant of the Rain God, and that one of them has the ability to bring it back to life to exact its master's deadly revenge. Trapped inside of the compound with the murderous, unstoppable creature, they must join forces to destroy the monster, or allow it to carry out its plans to annihilate all mankind.

Can't We Sue for False Packaging?
9 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen better film on a bath tub. The producer/director may have worked in Hollywood for over 20 years and started out with a fright master, but he must have cribbed pages from the Ed Wood Book of Terrible Movie Making! No, that's a spiteful statement, isn't it. Sorry, Ed! At least your movies were fun! Don't waste your time on this movie. The acting is not much better than a junior high production and the cliché mood-setting storm is annoying instead of scary. Stilted dialog, ham reactions, and staid camera work create a boring experience. The mummy in profile looks more like Homer Simpson wrapped in day-old diapers.

In fact, the only positive things I can say about this movie is the mummy's makeup is spot on (not his costume!) and the packaging is top quality. Whoever designed the DVD packaging should have written and directed the movie as it appears more time and thought went into the cover instead of the movie.

You can't sue to get back the 96 minutes wasted on this "film". You'd get more out of making your own version of Scream of the Mummy, and it would probably be much better than this.

This movie proves that you really can't judge a movie by its DVD packaging, and there ought to be a law about delusional and false self-promotion on DVD covers of what amounts to something that is not much better than a frat-boy weekend home-made video.
