THE MUMMY is a 1932 horror film in which an embalmed ancient Egyptian man comes back to life, stalking the woman he believes to be a reincarnation of his long dead lover.

Threat

When the 'Mummy' initially comes back to life, it approaches an unsuspecting archaeologist from behind. The 'Mummy' is also seen staring menacingly at the camera. When the 'Mummy' is destroyed, his face decomposes, briefly revealing the bone behind the flesh.

Violence

Mild violence occurs when we see a priest in ancient Egypt being mummified and buried alive, after which is slaves are killed by soldiers. Spears, with a little blood on them, are seen protruding from the bodies of the slaves.

There is a brief reference to 'making love', as well as some scenes of smoking.
