There are tales about a curse: everyone who steals a statue that represents the Egyptian cat-goddess Mafdet is killed by the goddess. Now, the statue has disappeared and the curator of a museum in New York asks Sidney and Nigel to retrieve it. When they start the quest, they discover that the people who have taken the statue is starting to be murdered. Is the curse real... or is someone making it real? Written by
Egypt, 1895. A magic statue of cat goddess Mafdet is stolen, and its powers can kill people. In the present day, Nigel fails to explain the difference between astrology and astronomy to Claudia. When Sydney goes to New York to see the Mafdet statue at an exhibition, it is stolen again, and the only other thing stolen by the burglar is - one red shoe.
The second adventure concerning Egypt clearly is superior to its predecessor. Archive footage (at least) of the pyramids, a more impressive villain, clever story development and brilliant photography with weird psychedelic dream scenes. The guest stars contribute to the success, namely Carlo Rota as modern art expert Lagerfeld and Rena Mero as blond Egyptian princess. Admittedly, I wondered why she's blond, why she is still using a sand glass in modern times, and why she can disappear into thin air. But reason and logic maybe need to stand back in a story about magical powers and secret cults.
