                                             5 days til Halloween 

First there's an alligator dude, a creature from a lagoon, and angry, murderous, ferocious giant ants and spiders, and now a mummy. See the collation? You are at makastle.com, now do you the collation? Totally makes sense.  
 I bring you The Mummy (1959). Starring Christopher Lee (the mummy), Peter Cushing (the guy who wants to kill the mummy), and Yvonne Furneaux (mummy love), this movie is part of the Hammer films family. (which I totally love)
In 1895, British archaeologists find and open the tomb of Egyptian Princess Ananka with nefarious consequences. IMDb click here.  Sounds foreboding, does it not? I actually had this movie on VHS (just aged myself) until I drove it and my machine to their death. Actually named my dog Anubis... that's a different story. 

This movie is to get you in the right mood for Awaken. (Full story posted on Halloween.) And because you can't have Halloween without a little Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee action.  

The Mummy (1959)
Isobel Banning: John isn't it time you going to bed... What's the matter?
John Banning: It's extraordinary! I've never noticed it before, but with your hair like that you are the image of Ananka.
Isobel Banning: Am I?
John Banning: She was considered the most beautiful woman in the world.
Isobel Banning: Oh!, I am flattered!
John Banning: Mind you, the world wasn't so big then.
M.A. Kastle: Not nice John, not nice.

                                                          By M.A. Kastle


It weaves through his decaying flesh, forever tightening its talons on his stagnant heart. Its force, a kind of poison courses through his spoiled veins, keeping his body alive, and his soul suspended between the underworld of the dead and the world of the living. Ribbons of weakness wrap around his will and demand he give up and die. He won’t. He remains alive feeding on the desire of revenge. The dark and deadly visions entertain him, and keep his ancient mind from eating the slivers of madness.
