From the Horror Movie Poster of the Day File: After my Tumblr account was hacked, I missed my "Horror Movie Poster of the Day" posts for several days. Making up for lost time, I will keep the commentary short. The wartime Mummy movies that were part of the Universal Monsters movie franchise were never my favorites, but they - like the rest of the B-horrors churned out by the studio - were still enjoyable. The Mummy’s Curse is set in Louisiana and (believe it or not) if you go by the timeline set in the Kharis (the mummy played by Lon Chaney, Jr.) movies, the story takes place in 1999! The Mummy’s Curse is the last of the wartime mummy movies, alas. Universal wouldn’t make another mummy film until Abbott and Costello met bandaged one.
