The monster Mummy midterm

It's time to rise from the dead for a super-fun quiz!


If the mere mention of "midterms" doesn't send a shiver down your spine, the movie will!

Boris Karloff, the titan of terror, is back in macabre makeup. Here, he teams with famed cinematographer Karl Freund to bring not just shocks but atmosphere to a slower, more ambling monster and movie. 

We've transcribed the following quiz from ancient hieroglyphics found deep beneath the MeTV catacombs.

Where does The Mummy rank amongst your Universal favorites? Are you wrapped up in the details, or will this quiz bury you alive? Find out, and be sure to share your thoughts and your score with your fellow archaeologists in the comments section below!

Watch Svengoolie on MeTV!

For some reason, I never cared for Mummy movies. There's just something about mummies that isn't scary... maybe it's the fact that all you have to do is start pulling bandages, and before you know it, the mummy is just another rotting corpse - like most of the people I work alongside.

I think this is my least favorite Universal movie franchise, but, on a cold fall or winter day...if you're feeling under the weather, there's nothing better than putting on the Universal MUMMY movies; they wrap you up like...bandages...

ARRRGH! You got 8 out of 10
You broke the curse and made it out with your soul!
Love the old Universal monsters.

The 1932 Mummy didn't have sequels as such. Reimaginings would be a better way to describe the 1940s films, and A & C Meet the Mummy. Which I have to agree is actually pretty darned good.
Grew up with the Universal monsters on Shock Theater, then Friday Nght Chillers after the late news, etc.
PS I love Kolchak, but the series needs to be given a rest for a while. Only 20 episodes.

It would be nice if they could show the two tv movies that preceded the series. Even if they have to show each movie in two parts.

OH MeTV, When are you going to take M*A*S*H OFF YOUR SCHEDULE PERMANENTLY? It's waaaay past time that you did. Nobody wants it anymore!
HpHoward JeffPaul76 8 months ago
You got THAT right, friend.
cheduff JeffPaul76 8 months ago
It’s sad but I flip the TV off when M*A*S*H* comes on. It’s hard enough watching Gary Burghoff on Match Game ‘74.

I cannot stand Alan Alda. He had to be the center of every episode.
Reason i do not like MASH.

"ARRRGH! You got 3 out of 10. No matter how bad your score is, it'll never be as bad as the
Tom Cruise remake!"

While I did stink up this quiz, you MeTV guys blew question 8.
The original was in 1932, the Mummy's next appearance for Universal was in
1955, not 1999. Abbott & Costello Meet The Mummy, which is actually pretty darn good
and a fun movie to watch on a Saturday night, Black Cow in hand with a bowl of
popcorn on your lap. A Black Cow is a glass of root beer with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
Neither the Mummy or Billy Mumy can resist a Black Cow, yum.

A Black Cow is also called a Root Beer Float.

Perhaps they were looking for the name "Imhotep" specifically?
The Mummy in the 1955 Abbott & Costello film was named "Klaris."
Just a guess.
WGH LoveMETV22 8 months ago

Made the same mistake.
MikefromJersey LoveMETV22 8 months ago
You have a point, but my impression - with all due respect to them - is that the MeTV
guys aren't apt to go that deep into the weeds of movie/TV trivia, based on their
track record with these quizzes. I would love to see a team of their 5 best
go up against 5 posters here I could pick out. I don't think it would be close, as
"our" guys would start off with a base of knowledge whereas the MeTV crew are
probably people in their 20's who have to research from the get go all the articles
they present to us. Of course I could be wrong.

A Black Cow was also a chocolate coated caramel sucker . Similar to a slow poke.
trogg888 JeffPaul76 7 months ago
It also was another name for a black russian
