Who's the Best... Mummy?
Karen: This one might not be as easy or as fun as some of the others. Let's face it, of all the classic monsters, the Mummy probably has the least personality. Now, admittedly, Karloff's Imhotep/ Ardath Bey actually spoke, so he gets a few more points I guess. And the most recent remake also invested the reborn Mummy with some little personality, in between all the obvious CGI and stunts. Personally, I always found Christopher Lee's Kharis physically impressive. The Tom Tyler Mummy (also named Kharis) was kind of menacing too. And then there's the shambling Lon Chaney Jr. version (Kharis again)...and the Aztec Mummy...OK, who ya got?
