The ancient Egyptian Mummy, Kharis, is transported from his homeland with the high priest Mehemet (Turhan Bey) to wreak vengeance on the family who has defiled the sacred tomb of his beloved Princess Ananka. Compassionately portrayed by Lon Chaney Jr., Kharis travels to the United States, with companion Mehemet, to seek archaeologist Stephen A. Banning (Dick Foran). Systematically, the last surviving members of the original expedition are killed while Mehemet falls in love with Isobel Evans (Elyse Knox), Banning's beautiful fiancée. He futilely tries to use the Mummy to ensnare Isobel to be his high priestess, but is prevented by a fiery mob which destroys him and the Mummy in this classic chiller.
