OVERVIEW

powered by AFI

Brief Synopsis

Archeologist Matthew Corbeck (Charlton Heston), obsessed with the legend of Egyptian princess Kara--who was forced into an incestuous affair with her father and later killed him--travels to the Middle East to uncover her tomb. Disregarding the curse associated with the legend, Corbeck pillages the burial site and brings the loot back to a London museum, unaware that his daughter was born at the very moment he broke the seal on Kara's tomb. After a quick 18 years fly by, Corbeck's daughter, Margaret (Stephanie Zimbalist), becomes possessed by the long-dormant spirit of Kara and the bodies start to pile up.
