The Mummy

DOWN & DIRTY:
Horror/Adventure: A group of explorers contend with an all-powerful mummy who's returned from the dead to unleash plagues and resurrect his long dead lover.

NITTY GRITTY:
In ancient Thebes, the Pharaoh's mistress, Anck-Su-Namun (PATRICIA VELASQUEZ) and his high priest, Imhotep (ARNOLD VOSLOO) have conspired against the Pharaoh. As a result, she kills herself and Imhotep is captured and mummified alive, left to be consumed by carnivorous scarab beetles. He's also given a warning that if he's ever exhumed, he'll unleash plagues upon his liberators and the rest of Egypt.

Thousands of years later, a battle at those hidden Egyptian ruins of Hamunaptra leaves French legionnaire Rick O'Connell (BRENDAN FRASER) and his weasel-like assistant Beni (KEVIN J. O'CONNOR) the only survivors.

Three years after that, Rick finds himself in jail set to be executed in 1926 Cairo. To his defense comes Evelyn (RACHEL WEISZ), a bumbling librarian -- who works for the Curator (ERICK AVARI) of the Museum of Antiquities -- and her inept and boozing brother, Jonathan (JOHN HANNAH). They've heard that Rick knows of the ancient temple, and after bribing the prison warden (OMID DJALILI) to spare Rick's life, they set off in search of the ruins.

They're not the only ones heading there. A group of American cowboys --Henderson (STEPHEN DUNHAM), Daniels (COREY JOHNSON) and Burns (TUC WATKINS) -- accompanied by an Egyptologist (JONATHAN HYDE) and led by....surprise.....Beni -- also arrive at Hamunaptra.

Once their separate archaeological ventures are underway, they discover the still "juicy" mummified remains of Imhotep, and inadvertently recite an incantation that brings the mummy back to life.

The mummy needs others' body parts to regenerate his own body, and he wants to resurrect his long dead lover.

Rick, Evelyn and the others do what they can to contend with the fearsome creature and the deadly plagues he unleashes, as well as with Ardeth Bay (ODED FEHR) and his fellow warriors who are sworn to protect the sacred burial grounds from Imhotep ever being released from his grave.


THE ENDING:
Imhotep grabs Evelyn and takes her back to Hamunaptra to use her body for the soul of his dead girlfriend Anck-Su-Namun. Rick and Jonathan follow them back and rescue Evelyn. Evelyn reads an incantation that turns Imhotep into a mortal man. Rick runs him through with a spear and he dies in the 'Well of Souls.'

Meanwhile, Beni is trying to steal all the treasure in the place and inadvertently sets off a booby trap that starts the destruction of Hymenopteran.

Rick, Evelyn and Jonathan barely escape, but Be ni is trapped inside the chamber with the hungry scarab beetles. Ouch!
