Strange things start to happen when a crew of archeologists, including British Capt. Storm (Mark Dana), Sgt. Smolett (Terrence De Marney), Sgt. Gromley (Richard Peel) and Sylvia Quentin (Diane Brewster), travel to Egypt and excavate an area containing a mysterious tomb. Once a mummy's sarcophagus is opened, death becomes rampant -- and all along, a wandering local named Simira (Ziva Rodann) warned of this.
