The Mummy

Imhotep takes Beni and Evelyn back to Hamanaptra. Pilot Winston Havlock flies Rick, Jonathan, and Ardeth Bay there so they can rescue Evelyn, but Imhotep uses his powers to create a sandstorm and cause the plane to crash, killing Winston. Rick, Jonathan, and Ardeth survive. In the City of the Dead, Imhotep resurrects his mummy priests to battle the three heroes, while he attempts to sacrifice Evelyn in order to resurrect Anck-Su-Namun. Meanwhile, the villainous Beni is stealing some of Pharaoh Seti's treasure from the treasure chamber.

Rick frees Evelyn, but Anck-Su-Namun is resurrected. Jonathan reads from the Book of Amun Ra and accidentally awakens some soldier mummies who battle Rick after he kills the mummy priests. After reading another inscription, Jonathan commands the soldiers to kill Anck-Su-Namun. Imhotep attempts to kill Rick, but Evelyn reads an inscription which causes Imhotep to lose his Hom-Dai powers and become human. Rick kills Imhotep with his sword, and Imhotep sinks into the dark bog.

While stealing more gold, Beni's greed causes him to accidentally activate a lever which causes Hamanaptra to start collapsing. Beni tries to drag his treasure bag, but abandons it and narrowly avoids being crushed by a wall. Ardeth Bay has already made it outside. Evelyn and Jonathan make it through the last doorway with Rick behind them. Beni attempts to escape with Rick, but the archway thuds to the floor, sealing Beni in the treasure chamber. Other walls come down, blocking the exits and trapping Beni. A lone scarab appears on top of a statue and, after spotting Beni, it alerts the other scarabs to come out so they can kill Beni. Suddenly, thousands of scarabs surround Beni. The terrified Beni tries to hold them off with his failing torch. Beni's torch dies and the scarabs devour him in the pitch black darkness, serving justice to Beni for the evil he did throughout the story. Rick, Evelyn and Jonathan say goodbye to Ardeth Bay and ride camels into the desert, unaware of one of Beni's treasure bags attached to one camel.

Trivia: In the scene where Evie wakes up to find a rat on her chest she screams and rolls over and the rat then lands on the female mummy. According to the commentary on the DVD the rat wasn't meant to land on the girl playing the mummy, who was only the make-up lady. As soon as it landed on her she jumped up screaming.


More trivia for The Mummy

Chosen answer: The tattoos on his forehead are the Egyptian Hieroglyphs that spell "Underworld", and the ones on his cheeks are the Egyptian Hieroglyphs for the word "truth." All Medjai males get these tattoos as part of the coming-of-age rite, when they turn sixteen, of which the most important is the tattoo on their right wrist (which Rick O'Connell also has) that marks them as "warriors for God." Other tattoos specific to Medjai males are on their arms, forearms, hands, pectorals, shoulder blades and beneath the navel - the tattoos on the nose and chin are no longer used, since the time of Seti I. Medjai females only get the wrist tattoo when they come of age, but are not marked with any of the other symbols that are particular to men. Fun fact: If the Medjai - male and female alike - shows any sign of pain or cries during the tattooing process, it is considered that they have brought shame to their family.
