The Mummy's Ghost: Consistently passable
16 May 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The Mummy's Ghost is the third of four movies in the original "The Mummy" franchise.

It follows on from the previous film and yet another high priest has risen our mummy (Played again by Lon Chaney Jr). Once again he is after the reincarnation of his original love. Trouble is this is the third time we've seen the same plot.

I'm not saying The Mummy's Ghost is any worse than the rest, it's just the same thing.

What it does have however is a very shocking and surprising finale that I found very entertaining. Movies from this time tended to be very predictable so this came as a surprise.

For fans this will entertain, but it could easily have been a stand alone movie.

The Good:

Fantastic finale

Well enough made

The Bad:

Some very hammy acting

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Fainting was a big thing for women in the 1940's

Mummy tantrums are hilarious

Ancient egyptian bandages were bullet proof
