Dr. Kareem intends to unify Arab nations by stealing an artifact and putting the blame on westerners, but his theft inadvertently awakens a mummy which thereafter stalks him. Ignorant of his peril, Kareem enacts a plan to frame "old friend" Dr. Benton Quest as the thief, ultimately locking Benton, Race and the artifact together in an abandoned archaeological dig with poisonous adders for company. As Jonny and Hadji discover the plot and race to the rescue, the mummy closes in to administer justice of his own.
Did You Know?
When the thieves show Dr. Kareem the statue, their instructions are to take it "...across the border to the ruins of Giza". However, the establishing shot shows that the temple of Anubis is near both the Great Sphinx and the pyramid of Khafre, which is in Giza. Therefore, they're taking the statue back where it came from, and no border crossings are involved. If the borders of the various governorates of Egypt are the ones under consideration, they would not be a barrier to travel. See more
What is the matter, Jonny? Are you not happy?
Oh, sure, Hadji, but instead of traveling in a truck, I was hoping we'd get to ride camels.
