Karloff plays Im-Ho-Tep, the mummy, who is accidently revived after 3,700 by a British Archaeology team. In a flashback we find that he was a high priest who was embalmed alive for trying to revive a vestal virgin whom he loved after she was sacrificed. Now, dressed in the garb of a modern-day Egyptian, he sets out to find his lost love, mistaking Helen Grosvenor for her in the process, and terrorising the members of the expedition who must find away to stop him.
