The Mummy (1932)
Not to be confused with the 1999 remake starring Brendan Fraser. The original, which features horror icon Boris Karloff in the title role, remains a classic, with unforgettable make-up and atmosphere. An archaeologist opens Karloff's crypt, resurrecting a fallen prince who had been entombed for 3,700 years. Karloff, who has returned as an Egyptologist, recognizes the incarnation of the woman he loved thousands of years earlier and plans to kill her so they can be together again in the afterlife.
