The highpriest of Arkan (George Zucco) sends one of his priests, Yussuf Bey (John Carradine), from Egypt to America to retrieve Kharis the Mummy (Lon Chaney jr), who has obviously survived the burning at the end of Mummy's Tomb, and the mummy of Princess Ananka, who is on display in the museum of Mapleton, incidently very near of where the mummy lurks about & kills whoever experiments with his life-giving Tana leaves, & even a few other townsfolks on the side ...

But once in the mapleton museum, Yussuf Bey & Kharis have to realize Ananka's mummy is soulless, & Ananka seems to have been reborn in Egypt-born collegegirl Amina (Ramsay Ames), aso they abduct her ...

Meanwhile in Mapleton an angry mob wants to set a trap for the mummy, & plan to lure him here by a scientist (Lester Sharpe) experimenting with tana leaves ... while only Tom (Robert Lowery), Amina's boyfriend, makes an effort to actually find Amina ...

Meanwhile Yussuf Bey wants to turn Amina into a mummy as a consort for Kharis, when suddenly he has the stupid idea to instead give her (& himself) eternal life & make her his bride ... Kharis doesn't like it one bit, & kills Yussuf Bey. Then he drags Amina, who's growing older by the minute, to the swamps, with Tom & the angry mob (whichhas since picked up Tom's trail) in hot pursuit.

In the finale, Kharis & Amina, by now an old woman, sink into the swamp before the eyes of the helpless townsfolks.

For once, the mummy gets the girl in the end ...

 

Pretty much a weak remake of the already weak Mummy's Tomb, again totally lacking any exotic aspects the story might suggest, again little more than a serialkiller movie with a mummy tagged on. By and large it's safe to say that in the 1940's, Universal has lost its touch for the horror genre, with its B-spookers being a rather sad affair compared to similar, cheaper product from the likes of B-movie-outfits PRC or Monogram.
