You want to see

the tomb one last time?

I'll be happier when it's sealed.

I feel the same way.

I've worked in dozens of tombs.

Most of my life has been

spent amongst the dead.

But I've never worked in a place

that had such an aura of menace.

There's something evil in there,

Uncle Joe. I felt it.

Oh, well. Let's get it over.

I've placed a charge in the tunnel.

It'll bring the roof down.

Great god Karnak,

father of all living things...

...hear these words from me,

the humblest of your servants.

For this desecration,

you will be avenged.

Those unbelievers who

disturbed your handmaiden...

...the Princess Ananka,

shall suffer for their blasphemy.

Though it takes years of earthly time,

I shall reenter the tomb...

...and find the instrument

of your revenge... ordained by your servants

4000 years ago.

This I swear!

Yes, completely unexpected. When they

woke him today, he asked for you.

For three years, he hasn't

acknowledged me. Now he asks for me.

How do you explain it?

Frankly, I can't. I thought

his condition was permanent.

I believed he suffered

a physical stroke to the brain.

- Should be incurable.

- Could this mean he'll get better?

I don't know, Mrs. Banning.

It could be purely temporary.

- May I see him?

- Of course.

I would suggest alone.

- I'll wait for you here.

- All right.

James, show Mr. Banning to his father.

- Yes, sir. This way, sir.

- Thank you.

Hello, Father.


You must excuse me.

I've been unwell, you understand.

My memory. You look well, son.

I am well. Thanks.

Your leg, what's the matter with it?

I damaged it three years ago.

It didn't mend very well.

You should have seen the doctor

and had it set.

You wanted to see me, Father?

Yes. The mummy.

- I wanted to tell you about the mummy.
