We’re thrilled to announce a complete re-design of the American Cinematheque website. See The New Site Now >
THE MUMMY’S GHOST
1944, Universal, 61 min, USA, Dir: Reginald Le Borg

In this installment, Chaney is joined by fellow horror great John Carradine, who plays a high priest charged with returning Kharis and the body of Ananka to Egypt. But the plan goes haywire when it turns out Ananka has been reincarnated as a beautiful young woman (Ramsay Ames).


THE MUMMY’S TOMB
1942, Universal, 60 min, USA, Dir: Harold Young

Foran, Zucco and Ford return for this atmospheric and fast-paced sequel set thirty years after THE MUMMY’S HAND. Here Lon Chaney Jr. debuts in the role of Kharis; and his caretaker Turhan Bey brings the mummy to America to avenge the desecration of Princess Ananka’s tomb in the previous film, by killing all the archeologists and their descendents.


THE CYCLOPS
1957, Warner Bros., 66 min, USA, Dir: Bert I. Gordon

When test pilot Bruce Barton goes missing, his girlfriend organizes a search party that includes a scientist, a pilot, and a mining expert (played by horror icon Lon Chaney Jr.). Flying into a Mexican jungle, the group encounters enormous mutant snakes and bugs, and that's nothing compared to the 50-foot title character they eventually find! B-movie auteur Bert I. Gordon directs this classic of 1950s sci-fi horror.
