Another neglected classic included on the 2 disc Vampires, Mummies and Monsters set from Shout Factory.
Ben Murphey plays a college professor who brings back the body of an ancient mummy from an Egyptian tomb and before you can blink an eye, the thing is up walking around looking to retrieve stolen crystals.
It turns out the mummy is actually an alien who landed on earth 5000 years ago and was entombed by the Egyptians when he spread a strange disease around.
The alien here actually means no harm, he just wants to go home. Kevin Brophey, Nina Axelrod and Sheri Belafonta Harper co-star. Nina has always been a favorite of mine and I cannot understand why she doesn't get more work.
James Karen is the Dean of the college, and Austin Stoker and Darwin Jostan are reunited from Assault on Precinct 13.
This is a good and overlooked sci-fi film that is fun, and again, the ending is left totally open for a sequel that never happened. I won't spoil it here.
