Then Is Now Podcast Episode 30 – Horror Primer – The Mummy Movies

Part 2 of our series on How to Get a Younger Person into Horror is here, to start 2021 off right!

Filmmaker Chris Esper joins me as we continue our journey to help you, the listener, get someone to enjoy Horror movies! If you start them young enough, we have recommended starting with the Universal Horror Classics: Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, and the Creature From the Black Lagoon. On our first part, in Episode 26, Chris and I discussed Dracula and it’s sequels.

This episode we continue that tradition with The Mummy (1932) and its sequels The Mummy’s Hand (1940), The Mummy’s Tomb (1942), The Mummy’s Ghost (1944) and The Mummy’s Curse (1944). We had some great laughs, particularly as the movies decreased in quality, but they’re all still fun, nonetheless!!

Remember to prime them if they are not used to Black & White movies by starting them with The Little Rascals, The Three Stooges, or even The Twilight Zone! They will truly come to appreciate that not all movies or TV shows have to be in color!
