    Universal had pretty much milked the whole Kharis the mummy thing dry by the time this fourth and final Kharis movie was released in 1944. Even Lon Chaney doesn’t seem to care a whole lot about the project as he slides and stumbles his plodding way through the swamps of Louisiana. It’s really best not to question how Kharis and the ancient Egyptian princess Ananka wound up buried in a swamp in Cajun country; just accept it and go from there. Ananka, once she rises from the muck and gets herself cleaned off, is quite the dish this time around, although her whole schizophrenic, dual identity, amnesia thing can be a little off-putting. The beauty and doe-like eyes Virginia Christine brings to the role of Ananka helps explain why Kharis is still stubbornly pursuing her after more than three millennia. I mean this guy just won’t give up, nor will he take no for an answer. Every time he approaches Ananka, she runs away screaming, yet he just bows his filthy bandaged head and starts the whole search over again. At least the supporting cast is pretty good. You can’t help but like a guy called Cajun Joe – well, unless you’re an ancient mummy, anyway. And then there is my favorite character, the wide-eyed Goobie (Napoleon Simpson) who runs around hollering “The mummy’s on the loose and he’s dancin’ with the devil” every time something bad happens.
    The plot of this particular quartet of mummy films was really starting to wear thin by this point. You’ve got two Egyptian mummies calling Louisiana home, then you’ve got this new high priest who has come over to find Kharis and keep giving him the old “three Tana leaves” juice that keeps him going. You can’t even feel sorry for Kharis’ millennia-old love problems anymore because Ananka clearly wants nothing to do with the filthy, tongue-less collection of dirty linen strips. The fact that the film runs for barely an hour is indicative of the fact that the magic was all but gone by this point; there comes a time when the same old same old begins to sound rather silly, and The Mummy’s Curse comes close to crossing that line on several occasions.

    In reading the cover for this video, I read that the mummy Kharis will meet his princess Ananka and the two will “wreak havoc together.” I don’t know what the writer of these words saw, but it was not this movie. Although the mummy attacks those who get in his way, there is no duo of mummies doing anything.
    In this film, a public works crew is working to drain a swamp in the American South. Given the character of Cajun Joe, we can assume that this is Louisiana. As the crew is draining the swamp, the mummy is retrieved by his acolytes. With their knowledge of the sacred tanna leaves, they work to help Kharis find his princess. The movie gives us the battle between the modern age and the mystical times long ago.
    Lon Chaney, Jr. plays the mummy in this film. For the most part, he plays it well and sets the pace for any actor playing a mummy. The outstretched arm with the other arm close to the chest and the dragging foot all give us the standard for a mummy.
    I would recommend seeing this movie.

    A Much better sequel than “Tomb” and “Ghost”, June 8, 1999

    This final film in the series chronicling the adventures of Kharis the Mummy (still played by Lon Chaney) as he continues his quest to find princess Ananka. The is the best of the Mummy sequels Everything in it is perfect, just like in “The Mummy’s Hand.”
