Here’s the cool thing about “The Mummy in My Living Room (Part 1).
Jack Pierce created Karloff’s makeup for the film in 1932.
This iconic image is only shown once in the movie; recently, while streaming it late at night, I hit pause when it came on screen and absent-mindedly took a photo with my iPhone. It was just an off-hand impulse, I didn’t expect it to look like much.
Imagine my surprise to see this shot. It’s as if Jack Pierce’s genius would not be denied 90 years later, photographed in someone’s living room in a medium he could never have imagined.
Chilling and still powerful almost a century later.
The Mummy lives.
