The Mummy's Curse is the 1944 horror film follow-up to The Mummy's Ghost which was also released in 1944. This film marks Lon Chaney Jr.'s final appearance as Kharis, the Egyptian mummy. The Universal Mummy series also boasts of a parallel-earth kind of timeline. The Mummy's Hand was made and set in 1940; The Mummy's Tomb takes place 30 years later; The Mummy's Ghost about five years after that, and The Mummy's Curse twenty-five years after "Ghost." That means if the timeline is taken seriously, this film is set around the year 2000.


This installment in the series takes place in Louisiana Cajun country and concerns Princess Ananka, the ancient Egyptian princess for whom Kharis bore a forbidden love. Ananka had previously been reincarnated in The Mummy's Ghost only to die in the swamps. In this film, her body is dug up by land developers and she comes back to life. Kharis terrorizes the local country in his search for her. Interestingly enough, one of the principal leads, Dennis Moore, is not even listed in some of the movie posters for the film.
