Storyline

In 1957, Sam leaps into the body of Dale Conway, an American archaeologist on a dig in Egypt just as he and his partner Ginny Will discover the tomb of Ptah-Hotep. Al tells him however that the discovery has to this day never been reported and that both Conway and Will disappeared without a trace. Like all tombs, there is a curse supposedly placed on anyone who enters and Al would happily get out of there. As several of the expedition's crew are killed in bizarre accidents, Sam and Ginny race to save as much of the tomb as they can before a huge sandstorm engulfs them. As they find what they are looking for however, they are also trapped in one of the tomb's inner chambers. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Historian Will Durant (1885-1981) argued that Ptah-hotep could be considered both the first philosopher and the first moral philosopher. He also theorized, however, that the work could be dated as early as the 29th century BC. See more »

Quotes

Razul: 3500 years ago... other men and women sat around campfires near here, waiting to bury their great pharaoh. And now... and now, they're like the grains of sand around us. It makes one wonder what all our efforts are about, hm?
