The Official Site of Kharis the Mummy!
Updated July 1'st, 2003

Click to view exciting scenes from the mummy's films!

Be patient while this page loads
and you'll hear the jackals howl!

This is the official site of Kharis, a character who lumbered through four classic Universal horror films in the forties and found a place in the hearts of countless fans. Today, he sleeps almost forgotten in the shadow of the Frankenstein monster, Dracula, and the Wolf Man. But in spite of falling into virtual obscurity, Kharis never really died! Tana leaves bubble again in the sacred brazier, and a new High Priest of Karnak prepares to give life and movement to Kharis! Listen! Jackals howl about the tombs of the Pharaohs, and the full moon bathes the Nile with mystic light. Join us under the stars of Egypt as we explore The Hill of the Seven Jackals!

Check It Out!
See pictures of my personal encounter with Kharis at the Monster Bash

friendly with the most recent reincarnation of the lovely
princess Ananka! Click here to see what happened!

Mummy Fans, Don't Miss These!
The mummy sub-genre has been around far longer than
the Kharis films, and these two eerie essays are examples
of the scary mummy tale at its best!

A Night With the Mummies!
Read Pierre Loti's macabre account of his nocturnal visit
to the Hall of Mummies in the Cairo Museum. It's like
being at the Kharis family reunion! This page has a really 
sinister sound track and a link to a creepy moving image 
of the mummy of Nestanebetashru. an Egyptian princess.
Believe me, she'll haunt your dreams....

Into the Mummy's Tomb!
Another eerie adventure with the intrepid Pierre Loti!
This time he descends into the darkened corridors and
shadowy chambers of Amenophis II's tomb & and gazes
upon the withered flesh of an ancient king 
& his three long-dead companions.
