Get set for a whole sarcophagus load of extra Sven fun tonight on Me-TV- when we run “The Mummy’s Curse”- with- due to the short length of the film- a variety of bonus Svengoolie bits!
Of course, you get the this movie- the fifth and last of the “Mummy” series until Abbott and Costello met the embalmed one in 1944- has an irrigation crew working in the bayou accidentally setting free not only Kharis the living mummy- but- a curvy female who rises from the swamp mud, suffering from amnesia! Could she be Kharis’ long lost love- reborn again?
Plenty of interesting stuff in this film- and we’ll tell you about a lot of it- including who the amnesiac woman is- and where you may not realize you know her from! And- as I mentioned- a heapin’ helping of Sven fun- with some people you might recognize, including the great comic artist Alex Ross and some superhero shtick! For those who say “oh, I’ve already seen this movie’- maybe so, but not with all the extra goodies we’ve added as a special treat!
“The Mummy’s Curse” runs tonight on Me-TV at 10 pm eastern and pacific, 9 pm central, and please check your local listings if you aren’t sure what time it runs where you’ll be watching. For our Chicago audience, you can get an encore of the classic Claude Rains “Invisible Man” on our sister station WCIU- the U- at 11 am.
Hope everybody enjoys this Memorial Day weekend- but make sure you pause to remember the men and women who gave their lives in service to our country.
