From Ancient Egypt to modern times, the Mummy has haunted the imaginations of millions. Wrapped in bandages from head to toe, the Mummy stalks the night to avenge an age-old curse and destroy those foolish enough to disturb his tomb. Today, novelists and filmmakers continue to be inspired by the creepy and mysterious image of the Mummy in comic books, Hollywood blockbusters, and museum exhibitions. Neither age nor familiarity has dimmed the public's fascination with one of the most frightening and fascinating monsters of all time.
