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.

Goofs

Embalming involves putting the corpse into honey, after carefully removing its brain and internal organs. Therefore the professor's claim, that the person (the mummy) was embalmed alive, does not make sense. See more »

Oh Dear
3 June 2001 | by (Wokingham, England) – See all my reviews

Oh dear, what were they thinking when they wrote this - about something else is my guess, the shopping, what they had for breakfast that morning - pretty much anything except "lets make a good movie".

The acting is atrocious, with stilted dialogue, especially by the guy who plays Morris, you can see him listening for his cues.

The budget was obviously spent entirely on the creature itself but don't let it fool you into thinking this is worth watching - the creature looks like some shambling fat man who has been hit by the ugly stick a few times. The creature fails to be scary as it rarely gets above the pace of an athritic snail.

As I said the creature was where the majority of the budget went, it did not seem to stretch to location or extras. This film is meant to be set upon a school campus and I think you see a total of 9 people, including the creature throughout. Also the "Dorms" look distinctly like a normal house, probably the directors. I even began to suspect that the constant cliche of walking around darkened rooms was probably an effort to save on the lighting bills.

There is no character build up - so little in fact that I can only remember the Morris guys name (because he was so awful) and I have only just watched the damn movie. You do not care about a single one of them.

On my box the film is called "Bram Stoker's The Mummy 2". What the hell as this film got to do with Bram Stoker?

Do not ever ever ever ever ever watch this movie - do not be fooled into thinking "oh, it may be so bad it's funny" - it isn't it's just plain bad.
