The flashback sequence features footage of Boris Karloff and Tom Tyler from earlier films--thus Kharis is actually played by three different actors (more if stunt doubles are included). See more »
The previous installment, The Mummy's Ghost, ended with Kharis and Ananka sinking into a marshy swamp in Massachusetts. Approximately 25 years later, while draining a swampy Louisiana bayou, Kharis and Ananka are freed from their muddy tomb, allowing Kharis to resume his reign of terror among the bayou dwelling Cajuns. It is never explained how the swamp, containing the Mummies, was moved from Massachusetts to Louisiana over the passing years. See more »
The final entry in the Kharis the mummy series is also the weakest, although still a good watch. At the end of the last film, Kharis and Ananka disappeared into the swamp. Decades later, the swamp is drained. For some reason, this film moves the location of the swamp from New England to Louisiana! So obviously somebody didn't think continuity was that big of an issue. Anyway, Kharis is revived by yet another Egyptian high priest (Peter Coe). Meanwhile, Ananka resurfaces from the mud and we discover she is played by Virginia Christine. Why Ramsay Ames didn't return to the role I'm not sure, but Christine does fine. Needless to say, Kharis is once again anxious to find his lost love. This was Lon Chaney Jr.'s last turn as the mummy. This one's got some marks against it but it's a fun movie. Nice atmosphere and some creepy moments. Universal horror fans like myself will like it most.
