HORROR OCTORBOR: The Mummy (1932) / The Mummy (1999) (w/Biggest Fan Podcast)

Mummy This week on Alcohollywood, Brockett from the Biggest Fan Podcast joins us for this latest installment of Horror Octorbor, where we pair classic Universal monster movies with a modern adaptation! This time around, we get wrapped up in the 1932 Boris Karloff classic The Mummy and the 1999 Stephen Sommers-directed action-comedy The Mummy, starring Brendan Fraser as Indiana Jones-lite Rick O’Connell! These two movies have wildly different tones. Whereas the Karloff Mummy is a more sedate, dramatic and suspenseful love story, Fraser’s Mummy trades tension for wry charm and thrilling, fast-paced action sequences. They’re two great flavors that go great together, along with our custom cocktail and drinking rules – check ‘em out!
