Scans revealed an Egyptian mummy was actually a pregnant woman, not a male priest

Engravings in a temple in Thebes in Egypt. KHALED DESOUKI/AFP via Getty Images Scientists have uncovered the first known example of pregnant woman being mummified. The mummy was first thought to be a male priest because of an inscription on the sarcophagus. "We were really shocked," said one of the scientists who led to project in Warsaw, Poland. See more stories on Insider's business page. Scientists were "shocked" to find that a mummy they previously thought to be a male priest inst...

New ‘Van Helsing’ Movie Coming From Producer James Wan and ‘Overlord’ Director Julius Avery

Universal continues its quest to bring back characters from the classic Universal Monster movies. The latest is a new Van Helsing movie which, thankfully, won’t have anything to do with the terrible 2004 movie starring Hugh Jackman. This new Van Helsing comes from producer James Wan and director Julius Avery, who helmed Overlord. Van Helsing originated in Bram Stoker’s Dracula and has been played on screen by actors like Edward Van Sloan, Peter Cushing, Anthony Hopkins, and, yes, Hugh Jackman. ...

Archaeologists unearthed 160 sarcophagi from an ancient Egyptian necropolis. Some of the tombs were inscribed with mummy curses.

A Egyptian man points at hieroglyphs in the mastaba tomb of Seshem Nefer Theti at the Giza Pyramid complex. Oliver Weiken/picture alliance via Getty Archaeologists have found 160 sarcophagi at Saqqara, an ancient Egyptian city of the dead, since September.

The Mummy’s Hand! (1940)

32 Days of Halloween XIIIMovie Night #10 As always, sequels beget sequels. With Universal scoring with turning everything else into a franchise, it was time to do so with 1932’s The Mummy, although with basically nothing directly linking it to the first film–other than the re-use of some footage. It apparently also used the score from Son of Frankenstein to save a few bucks. (And you thought they only did that with “Swan Lake.”) It was directed by Christy Cabanne (the 1934 Jan...

Caltiki, the Immortal Monster – review

Directors: Riccardo Freda (as Robert Hamton), Mario Bava (uncredited) Release date: 1959 Contains spoilers Ok, let us get the directors out of the way first. Officially this is a Freda film, though he was credited as Robert Hamton to make domestic Italian audiences think it was an American film – this was especially after the cool reception that I Vampiri received. The great Mario Bava did cinematography and special effects but it is believed he also did uncredited direction (as he did with I V...

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – review

Director: Genndy Tartakovsky Release date: 2018 Contains spoilers I don’t know what it is about this franchise but, despite rather enjoying it, I am always late to the party. The third instalment of the franchise, if you read my reviews for the first and second outings then you’ll see that, whilst I was enthusiastic about the first film, I was perhaps less so about the second. This isn’t to say that the second film was rubbish, just not as good as the first. Perhaps this is natural and there ar...

8 movie franchises that tried to copy Marvel's cinematic universe strategy — and how they fared at the box office

The Marvel Cinematic Universe kickstarted a trend and changed the way studios think about blockbuster filmmaking. But similar franchises haven't been able to replicate its success. Some have course corrected, such as Warner Bros.' DC Extended Universe, which is now focusing more on standalone stories. Others were dead on arrival, like Universal's Dark Universe, which flopped right out of the gate with 2017's "The Mummy." Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. When "Iron Man" hit ...

The Mummy – review

Director: Alex Kurtzman Release date: 2017 Contains spoilers This was the second false start of the Universal monsters’ reboot (dubbed Dark Universe). The first attempt, Dracula Untold, was so unsuccessful that it was allegedly dropped from the continuity. This did not set the cinematic world alight and the Dark Universe again looked unlikely. One issue was the push in both of these films at the action adventure, rather than horror. Whilst they can be used in various ways, the classic monsters ...

Short Film: Monsters Anonymous

This short film, directed by Jeremy London, was released in 2016 and comes in at around the 20-minute mark. It is a veritable Monster mash with all the favourites; Dracula (Brian O'Halloran), the Wolfman (Brent Phillip Henry, Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter), Dusty – the Mummy (Christopher Hall), Frank (Daniel Levy) a (deliberately) misnamed Frankenstein’s Monster and his Bride (Sheenan Cole). As well as the classics as listed we also get brief appearances by the Devil (Jason Robbins), the Blai...

Dark Universe Architect Alex Kurtzman Says Making ‘The Mummy’ Was Just As Painful As Watching It

Like a freshly-turned vampire immediately stumbling out into the sun, Dark Universe died before it could really get started. Universal had hoped to launch their own cinematic universe based around their classic monsters, but the first entry – The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise – was a complete dud. Afterwards, future Dark Universe projects were put on hold, and it seems like the idea is – for the time being – dead and buried. Now, Alex Kurtzman, who oversaw the Dark Universe writers room and direct...

Just to be clear, by the way… this is a mummy movie… and an alien movie… but it is also a vampire movie given the mechanics that Band throws in and rightly has a place here. ressurection So, it starts ...

29 Halloween-Themed Candies That Make Us REALLY Miss Childhood

This story was originally published September 21, 2016.As I've grown older, Halloween has become more and more of a chore than the birthday-/Christmas-level-excitement day it used to be. My friends bemoan the ritual of dressing up in painstakingly picked costumes. Our trick-or-treating has been replaced with bar-hopping. Free candy with expensive booze. In short, some of that childhood magic has tired and faded. But there is something that keeps one last sparkle of those Halloweens past: all th...
