When a young couple moves in a house formerly owned by an Egyptologist, they anger the vengeful spirit of the Egyptian princess whose tomb she had raided years prior.

Reviews:

“The story for this one is extremely simple and effective but the movie itself takes a while to get moving. It’s around an hour long but almost 40 minutes of it is heavy dialogue and character development. Realistically, the movie could be trimmed to around 30 or so minutes and it would have a bigger impact on the viewer.” Horror Society

“While I get the budget is very tiny, you don’t need a large budget to create suspense, a good script can create that tension and a director can ratchet it up as well. But to have your cast just monologue for 45 minutes without a single scare just kills this film and not even some slapstick comedy can save this movie.” The Inner Circle

Ouija Mummy runs fifty-five minutes plus credits and they don’t start playing with the board until thirty-five minutes in, forty-five before the possessions start. What we mostly get is talk about the rift between Chase and his brother Paul (Sébastien Godin) and girl talk between Natalie and her bestie Becca (Sharla Darcus Moore). It feels like they intended to shoot a full-length feature but ended up having to scrap the last act.” Voices from the Balcony
