Finally a scarab beetle one.
2 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

With Colm Meaney.

When an Egyptologist works on a cursed sarcophagus, he finds out the mummy's curse. Kind of a slow moving episode, and can be boring, but the end result leaves you feeling like you've actually experienced something. This might be one of the series most violent episodes, but it really doesn't seem that violent because it doesn't kick in until the end. This is a very nice looking episode, with a good ending plagued by lack of plot. Has guest appearance by Colm Meaney. Can be found on TFTD volume 6.

My rating: Great episode. 22 mins. TV PG V
