Definitely my favorite episode ever!
5 September 2019 | by Wikkid_GamezSee all my reviews

I love all of the TFTC episodes and aside from this one it is hard to pick a favorite... However, this one is definitely it... Maybe it is my love of the Mummy movies from 1932 and onward all the way until the 1999 remake. After that they definitely go downhill for me. But I love all of the old VN lack and white, the original as well as the females through the 1940's then the Christopher Lee remake in 1959... From there it mostly goes downhill with the exception of the 1999 remake with Brendan Fraser. I actually really liked that one! The 2017 one with Tom Cruise is crap if taken against the predecessors. It is ok on it's own if taken as something else I guess and not a remake. But anyway, back to this episode, I don't have much to say about the plot and all as everything has been covered. Only that I love this one! Any Mummy fans out there should give it a watch!
