Mummies, Oh My!

Mummies are super cool, and always a good subject matter for horror and action films.

Starting with the French "Cléopâtre" (which then became "Robbing Cleopatra's Tomb" in the USA).

Of course, there's the classic original "The Mummy" in 1932:

Many more Mummy movies were made, including treasure hunting movies like "Raiders of the Lost Ark":

And of course, most recently, "The Mummy", "The Mummy Returns" and "The Scorpion King".

Now you can enter Mummy Tombs anywhere in the world (because no, Egypt is not the only place Mummies are found), from anywhere in the world through The Mummy Tombs.

You can read about how various mummies were made, where they were from, how they were stored, and where you can go to see them.

Definitely check out the page on the Catacombs of Palermo, Curiosities, and Elmer McCurdy.

If you love mummies, this is also a great starting point to find more stuff on the web via search engines, YouTube, etc.

Happy Haunting!
