My Heroes Have Always Been Monsters Part 22

My first exposure to The Mummy came from the old Remco action figure and probably Scooby Doo. The first time I watched Universal's original film with Boris Karloff I have to admit I was pretty bored. I thought it was less creepy than Frankenstein or Dracula and not as cool as The Creature From The Black Lagoon. These days I have much more appreciation for the film, but I'd still like to see a truly kick ass horrifying take on The Mummy.

Probably the two best takes on the Mummy have been Hammer Films' starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing and the incomparable Don Coscarelli's Bubba Ho Tep. 
Keep watching the sky, nerds!
