It all starts out with Steve Banning (Dick Foran) recounting the story from The Mummy's Hand from 2 years ago (in the film though, 30 years have passed since then). But of course, then end of that film is no longer the end of the story. Instead both Andoheb (George Zucco) and the Mummy (now played by Lon Chaney jr) have survived their respective deaths, & now Andoheb ahnds care of the mummy over to Mehemet Bey (Turhan Bey) & tells him to go to America & have the Mummy erradicate the Banning-family, & whoever else was on the expedition from 30 years ago.

... so soon both Steve and his sister Jane (Mary Gordon) are killed, & at first everybody, including Steve's son John (John Hubbard) refuses to believe it has anything to do with the expedition from 30 years ago - let alone that a living mummy did the killings. But then Babe (Wallace Ford) the last survivor of the expedition arrives & corrobarates the story of the living mummy, and Jim (Paul E.Burns), the Banning caretaker is found in shock after having seen a walking mummy.

By now Mehemet Bey though has somewhat altered his plans of having revenge on the Bannings, as he wants John's fiancée Isobel (Elyse Knox) as his wife & tells the mummy to bring her. But when John notices that Isobel is abducted, he realizes he has an angry mob made of townsfolks behind him who are more than eager to put an end to the mummy-horror ... & soon they have apprehended Mehemet Bey & set fire to the house the mummy has carried Isobel to ... John had just enough time to save his fiancée, the mummy urns to death ... again.

 

Rath3er weak mummy-film that - having an American setting - strips the genre of all exotic aspects (safe from the inserts of cheap exotica from The Mummy's Hand), instead tells the tale as a rather weak serialkiller movie that just happens to have a mummy as the villain.
