Spotlight on Location: The Mummy Returns

20 min

Five thousand years ago...

a fierce warrior known

as the Scorpion King...

led a great army on a campaign...

to conquer the known world.

After a vicious campaign

which lasted seven long years...

the Scorpion King and his army

were defeated...

and driven deep into

the sacred desert of Ahm Shere.

One by one, they slowly perished

Under the scorching sun...

until only the great warrior himself

was left alive.

Near death...

the Scorpion King made a pact

with the dark god Anubis...

that if Anubis

would spare his life...

and let him conquer his enemies...

he would give him his soul.

Anubis accepted his offer

And spared his life.

Anubis gave the Scorpion King

Command of his army...

and like an evil flood,

they washed away...

all that lay before them.

When his task was done...

Anubis forced the Scorpion King

to serve him for all time.

His army was returned

to the sands from whence they came...

where they wait, silently...

to be awakened once again.


What were you thinking,

a mummy had come back to life?

Ill tell you a story some time.

What are you doing down here?

I told you to wait for us in the temple.

Its dangerous down here.

- But I saw your tattoo.

- You saw what?

On a wall by the entrance.

Theres a cartouche just like it.

With the pyramid and the eye...

and the two kings and everything.

- Really?

- Yeah.

Okay. Well, Ill be up to take

a look at that in a minute.

In the meantime, I want you

to wait for us up there.

Pick up your stuff,

and Ill see you up in the temple.

Go on.

And what should I do?

I dont know. Surprise me.

- Build a better mousetrap.

- Okay.

While your mother goes

and desecrates another tomb.

Go away.

- Those are poisonous, you know.

- Only if they bite you.

What was all that about?


Alex wanted to show me something.

I swear...

the kid gets more and more

like you every day.

You mean

more attractive, sweet...

and devilishly charming?

No, hes driving me crazy.

Now, where were we?

Hammer and chisel.

All right, all right!

Lets do it your way.

Thank you.

Ever since I had that dream...

this place is all

I can think about.

Ever since you had that dream,

I havent had a decent night of sleep.

I feel like Ive been here before.

I know Ive been here before.

Evy, nobodys been here before,

not in at least 3,000 years.

Except for these guys.

Then how do I seem to know

exactly where Im going?

Lets go.

Knock, knock. Anybody home?

You two check out that stuff,

see if its there.

Ill sort out the OConnells.

If you move that fast enough,

you can almost write your name.

I just had a vision.

It was like my dream,

but it was real.

It was like I was actually here

in ancient times.

Well, if you actually were here...

could you show me

how to open this thing?

Hold this.

- Now youre starting to scare me.

- Im starting to scare myself.

What is this?

Look at the state of this rubbish.

The Egyptians never had a clue.

Look at that stuff.

Its all chintz and stuff.

Look at that.

Cheap pottery, this.

Ancient rubbish.


somethings hit me head!

Shut up, Spivey.

This place is cursed.

We do not want to wake the gods.

Thats the emblem

of the Scorpion King.

Hes supposed to be pure myth.

No trace of him has ever been

found before. No artefacts.

No archival evidence.

- Lets open this.

- Evy, I dont know.

-I dont have a good feeling about this.

-Its only a chest.

No harm ever came

from opening a chest.

Right, and no harm ever came

from reading a book.

- Remember how that one went?

- Come on. We cant stop now.

Just remember,
