THE MUMMY is a US action horror in which the evil spirit of a betrayed Egyptian Princess is released into the world after her tomb is unearthed.

Threat

An Egyptian mummy comes to life and attacks humans by sucking the life out of them and turning them into zombies. People are chased by the undead and try to fight them off. There are a few jump moments.

Violence

Blood spurts onto a woman's face when it is implied she is killing people. There are some fight scenes featuring hand-to-hand combat. Stronger moments include a shooting and a stabbing. A man is kicked in the face, causing a blood spurt, and a man digs his fingers into another man's rib cage.

There is infrequent moderate bad language ('wanker') as well as milder bad language including uses of 'son-of-a-bitch' and 'bloody'.

There are some mild sex references when two people have a conversation about spending a night together and one of them refers to "a very long and satisfying evening".
