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!

THIS EPISODE’S DRINK: The Sands of Time
Combine and stir.
DRINKING RULES FOR THE MUMMY:
- Whenever you see Egyptian hieroglyphics
- Every time you hear a glib one-liner (exclusive to Mummy ’99)
- Screams (drink twice when the scream comes from a grossly distended jaw)
FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:
1932 Mummy: Dr. Muller says, “Her love for you may bridge the centuries!”
1999 Mummy: Beni (Kevin J. O’Connor) says, “I love the whole wall of sand thing, it was beautiful… Bastard.”
Join us next week as we see right through the Claude Rains-starring Universal monster flick The Invisible Man and the 1990s Kevin Bacon slasher Hollow Man!
