We watch this 1/2 hour sleeper once each year! Amazing!
20 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We didn't get too excited about any other Amazing Stories episodes except this one. Just one time, and we were smitten! It instantly became a FAVORITE! It's funny all the way through every time. The plot is ingenious with lots of humorous cuts on human behavior - crowd behavior, hopefully overdone compared to reality. Tom Harrison does very well as the Mummy. Even though you never see his face, his actions and words and tones of voice are hilarious, clever, and convincingly serious. The setting is eerie - with darkness, fog, realistic swamp, graveyard, small-town setting, etc. This is a see watch at least once - to see if you are like our whole family - ready to watch it again about once each year.
