On his deathbed, famed Egyptologist Professor Morlant (Karloff) instructs his assistant to bury him with an ancient jewel he believes will grant him eternal life. But soon after he's entombed, the sacred treasure is ripped from his hand by a mysterious grave robber. Now, filled with fury, Morlant rises from his crypt as a grotesquely decaying mummy determined to avenge the theft ... and destroy everything in his path!
And woe to those who might double-cross him, for Morlant's spirit will arise to wreak vengeance on his betrayers...

Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 62 ratings.
For many years, Karloff fans could only see this film in murky scratchy 16mm prints or over duped VHS copies. Several years ago, the unthinkable happened--the original negative was found! It was cleaned up by the Lowry Digital and is now so clean and sparkly that it doesn't look quite right. Make no mistake, it looks great and it's a fun little film, but this treatment raises the question concerning digital "restoration"--how much is too much?
