Instilling a lifelong fear of scarab beetles in a generation of moviegoers, The Mummy (1999) celebrates its 20th anniversary on May 7th, and we commemorate the infectiously fun remake of the 1932 Universal Monster movie on this episode of Daily Dead's official podcast! Listen as Corpse Club co-hosts Tamika Jones, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James take a deep dive into the action, adventure, and horror of 1999's The Mummy, including writer/director Stephen Sommers' Indiana Jones-esque vision for the remake, the film's effective blend of CGI and practical effects, and the movie's mix of slapstick comedy and bone-chilling (and life-sucking) horror. The co-hosts also discuss the chemistry of the film's eclectic cast, from Brendan Fraser's role as the resourceful Rick O'Connell to Rachel Weisz as the resilient Evelyn Carnahan and Arnold Vosloo's haunting portrayal of Imhotep. Taking a look at the expansion of The Mummy franchise, the Corpse Club co-hosts talk about the return of familiar faces and the introduction of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as The Scorpion King in The Mummy Returns, as well as the new villain that the O'Connell family faces in The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Before riding into the Saharan sunset, the co-hosts also discuss 2017's The Mummy reboot and where they'd like to see the franchise go in the future. So, after you make sure you don't have one of those hungry scarab beetles crawling under your skin, kick back, relax, and enjoy a new episode of Corpse Club!
