This month, we’re going “Back In Time” this month despite the new year. A reflective look, if you will, to a time where cinema was fluent with films that were questionable to the “normal” mind’s eye. There were thrills, chills, and comedic stills ingrained within our brains from then to now.

Last month, robots roamed the Cinema Insomnia pages. This month things seem a little funny around here. Books are floating, cats are talking, even the movies are strange. Almost as if we were under a spell…..a misunderstood spell. We are under Mr. Lobo’s hypnotic power, but what if it is deeper than that this month? Maybe a witch, perhaps? But which witch?

Witches are one of the most misunderstood characters on film and in life. Sailing through the night on their brooms, the  There have also been interesting misunderstood films about them. For instance the notorious THE INCREDIBLY STRANGE CREATURES WHO STOPPED LIVING AND BECAME MIXED-UP ZOMBIES (1964). 4811.D_210_118

Maybe not……

As more news arises from OUTER SPACE INTERNATIONAL and CINEMA INSOMNIA, this month’s THEME OF THE MONTH shall bring it’s own sort of terror! For years, the mysteries of the Egyptian kings have baffled archeologists, historians, and scientists. Some have said the tombs hidden in the masses of sand and earth contain evil curses who rack the bodies of searchers who stumble upon them. For years, Universal and Hammer along with many independent films have told many different adaptions of the tale of THE MUMMY!

image2sIt all began with BORIS KARLOFF’s 1932 classic, THE MUMMY. His monster wreaked havoc, conquering anyone who was in his path. From there, a legend was born and from there did many films follow. 

We’ve seen infinitely many different adaptions of this tale. THE MUMMY’S HAND (1940), THE MUMMY’S CURSE (1944), THE MUMMY’S GHOST, and many more. Then HAMMER FILMS began it’s own reign of terror.

This month, we will dive deep into the adaptions of THE MUMMY and maybe even discover a few surprises along the way. What is your favorite adaption of THE MUMMY? Do you prefer BORIS KARLOFF, LON CHANEY JR., or CHRISTOPHER LEE as the monster?

What is your favorite MUMMY franchise film? Do you prefer HAMMER or UNIVERSAL? Mummy-CurseSend us your pictures, MUMMY themed art, tattoo art, collection of your Mummy films or figures, or pictures/video of anything you think pertains to the theme and it will be shared on our pages to be seen and enjoyed by all!
