Tony Curtis (yes, I said Tony Curtis!) stars as Dr. Mohassid (blue eyes and all), a reincarnated soul whose undying love is going to cause some poor girl problems. There's the usual stuff about newly opened tombs and ancient curses of course.
The granddaughter of an archaeologist (who unknown to her had sacrificed his own life to seal up the tomb of an evil pharaoh he had been excavating) leads her own expedition to the tomb and accidentally reawakens the evil herself. You've never seen a mummy that kills this way before. A must for fans of Jason Scott Lee.
Time has tempered my inital reaction to this 1980 Charlton Heston flick, it's not half bad. Seems Heston's suffering from the curse of an ancient Egyptian Queen with a very long memory and time to spare.
