For a mummy movie, it was frightfully devoid of mummies...
Wow. Just wow. This movie was awful in every aspect possible.
So where to start?
Well, lets just start with the storyline. "Isis Rising: Curse of the Lady Mummy" is about an ancient mummy brought to life, the mummy of Isis, a wicked sorceress of the black arts. A group of young students, led by their professor and a historian of ancient Egyptian lore is spending a night in a museum to study a recent donation of Egyptian artifacts that have been donated to the museum. In their reckless stupor, the young teens accidentally awakens Isis from her cursed slumber.
There are so many plot holes and errors to this movie that it is just gruesome to behold. For starters, why would a group of college student be granted unsupervised access to priceless Egyptian artifacts in relations to their studies? And one thing that irritated me beyond mortal comprehension was why would Isis's spells be written in perfect English and why did she herself speak perfect English? She was from ancient Egypt for the love of all that is unholy. And while we are on the topic of spells, that book of spells that she wrote was in mint condition and perfectly bound like a proper library book! It was just so epically lame.
Then lets move on to the acting, or what was meant to resemble acting. It was amazing how an entire cast of actors and actresses could muster such a wooden performance individually and together in unison. It was hard to buy into, because it was as if the actors and actresses themselves didn't even buy into the movie.
The CGI effects were so poor that even SyFy Channel and The Asylum would have a field day with them.
And the sets looked like they were made in the local high school as part of a wood shop project. And it really made the movie become even harder to take serious and buy into.
Lets stop for awhile and look at the title, "Isis Rising: Curse of the Lady Mummy". Isis Rising? Well, that part I can understand, but Curse of the Lady Mummy, that part doesn't sit well with me. First of all, she wasn't mummified, she was just entombed in a sarcophagus without the proper ritual of mummification, so she is NOT a mummy!
"Isis Rising: Curse of the Lady Mummy" is a shameful insult to just about every mummy movie ever made, and it is a wonder that I made it through to the end. I guess it was a bizarre lust to see just what epic fail thing would turn up next on the screen that kept me glued to the seat, because it sure wasn't the story, the acting, the effects, or anything else for that matter.
