The Mummy's Hand (1940)
The Mummy's Hand (1940) Poster

*** out of 5

Even though it reuses some footage from the first film in its telling of the mummy's history, this is more reboot than true sequel, being produced 8 years after the original, with different characters reenacting the discover of the mummy in an entirely different context, with more humor, and a less sentient title monster, who, in this iteration is not a mournful prince seeking his long-lost bride, but a faithful servant to that princess, who has since become a mindless slave to a priest played by George Zucco.
