A Guide to Human on Non-Human Hookups in Movies The Mummy (1999)

Human on Mummy

Notable Examples: The Mummy (1999), The Mummy Returns (2001)

Karl Freund's 1932 horror classic The Mummy, starring Boris Karloff as the slow moaner, prepared viewers for this "wrapped up" variety of hookup. In that film, the undead Imhotep stalks Helen Grosvenor, a living woman who bears a striking resemblance to the mummy's bride (now deceased). All Imhotep needs to do is kill Helen and mummify her so that they can enjoy the afterlife together.

There's no human on mummy action though, as Imhotep is unsuccessful. However, in the '99 iteration of the tale, Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo) gets to lock lips with the living woman he wants to take as his bride (this time she's played by Rachel Weisz). This being contemporary Hollywood, the quick scene is tolerable because both of the people involved are conventionally attractive.
