“The Mummy vs The Mummy: An Evolution of Monster Movies” by Jefferson Hendricks, Centenary College professor of English and film.
The character of “the mummy” has appeared in dozens of films dating back over 100 years. Universal is bringing back all of the classic movie monsters from the 1930s and adapting them to scare a new generation of moviegoers. How have these monsters changed over the years? Has what audiences find terrifying evolved over the decades? What does our love of monster movies say about us? Come find out the answers to these and more questions at our “The Mummy vs The Mummy” introduction on June 10!
Movie synopsis: Brought back to life after nearly 3,700 years, Egyptian high priest Imhotep wreaks havoc upon the members of a British field exposition. While disguised as a contemporary Egyptologist, he falls in love with Zita Johann, whom he recognizes as the incarnation of a priestess who died nearly 40 centuries earlier.
