Trivia

The famous sequence in which Princess Ananka (Virginia Christine) rises from the dead in the swamp is slightly undercranked - a process that speeds up the action - which gives an eerie, unreal quality to her movements. The trick is given away by the overly fast movements of the branches around her. See more »

Goofs

In the scene in the old abandon monastery, when we see Kharis in his sarcophagus for the first time; the servant of the Highpriest of Amon-Ra opens the sarcophagus and modern hinges, with modern screws, are visible. See more »

Quotes

Goobie: Dr. Halsey! Dr. Halsey!
Dr. James Halsey: What is it, Goobie?
Goobie: The mummy's alive and he's dancing with the devil.

An "off-beat" Mummy film
28 May 1999 | by Norm-30See all my reviews

This entry in the "Mummy series" is unlike all the others, but that's what makes it interesting!

One of THE most interesting sequences in this film is when the Princess awakens in the bog (due to the sunlight), and slowly rises to her feet, totally covered with mud, and staggers to town. A very dramatic scene!
