The Mummy script
The Mummy (1999)
Synopsis: The Mummy is a rousing, suspenseful and horrifying epic about an expedition of treasure-seeking explorers in the Sahara Desert in 1925. Stumbling upon an ancient tomb, the hunters unwittingly set loose a 3,000-year-old legacy of terror, which is embodied in the vengeful reincarnation of an Egyptian priest who had been sentenced to an eternity as one of the living dead.

ANCK-SU-NAMUN

My body is no longer his temple!

She PLUNGES the sword into her own heart. out on the balcony, Imhotep's

mouth opens into a horrible silent scream .........

NARRATOR/IMHOTEP

For murdering Pharaoh, Anck-su-namun's body

was to be cursed. And it was I, the High

Priest, whose duty it was to curse it.

EXT. SAND DUNES - NIGHT

Imhotep leads-a TORCH-LIT procession across the dunes. Anck-su-namun's

mummy is carried by NUBIAN SLAVES. They pet her down in the sand along with

FIVE JEWEL ENCRUSTED JARS.

IMHOTEP:

Her body was mummified, her vital

organs removed and placed in sacred canopic

jars

Imhotep, filled with dread, reads from a OBOOKO made out of pure GOLD. THIS

IS THE BOOK OF THE LIVING.

IMHOTEP:

The Book of The Living contained

sacred incantations that would send the evil

dead on a journey into the dark underworld.

Strange LIGHT suddenly FLASHES across Anck-su-namun's body and across the

faces of the slaves and the EGYPTIAN SOLDIERS Suddenly, everyone's

fear-filled eyes all rise, as if watching Anck-su-namun's body rising. Then

one last HUGE FLASH, accompanied by a BLAST OF WIND, and it's over.

Anck-su-namun's body now lies twisted on the ground.

Imhotep's Priests place the body into a stone sarcophagus. The Nubian

slaves lower it into a hole and bury it with sand Imhotep then signals to

the Soldiers, who throw their spears at the Nubians. Killing them.

INHOTEP:

The slaves were killed....

Imhotep's knife-wielding Priests attack the now unarmed Soldiers, hacking

at them in the flickering darkness as Imhotep and the Mumia solemnly

watches.
