If you’ve seen Universal’s new The Mummy movie then you have been lucky enough to see the first movie in Universal’s upcoming Dark Universe franchise. A whole host of movies are planned that will all tie into each other. However, this is not the first time that this has happened!
Read about it in my Universal Monsters: Origins book that not only goes into great detail on how these original movies were made but looks at their origins within folklore and history.
A real Mummy’s curse inspired the original Mummy movie and how the original explorers of the tomb of King Tut befell grave circumstances! All this and more in Universal Monsters: Origins…. (available in all good book stores or via Amazon)
