S.1 E.3 - The Mummy's Tomb (1942)

Lon Chaney Jr. may have had to hide bottles of vodka in his bandages to get through some of those later sequels, but this is a fast and breezy episode you'll be able to blaze through with no trouble, as we take on the hour-long Universal B-horror flick The Mummy's Tomb (1942)

In this episode Patrick charts the rise and fall of Universal's classic monster movies, with a rise that began long before Bela Lugosi donned his cape and a fall that began long before Abbot and Costello met anybody. Also track the winding road of Universal's oft-forgotten Mummy series, from an eerie Dracula rip-off in Egypt to a shambling monster strangling Creole people in Louisiana!

Patrick also answers a variety of questions from listeners, including teasing upcoming episodes and movies within movies. DIG IN.
