Writer/producer/director Oliver Drake made so many poverty-row pictures over a 40 year period that one suspects he wasn't a single individual at all, but a "house name" adopted by whomever happened to be handy. Drake's Mummy and Curse of the Jackal is up to the director's usual standard, which isn't saying a whole lot. This time the bandaged title character is at large in Las Vegas. The script is a bit confusing: we're not sure if Anthony Eisley is a hero and John Carradine a villain, or vice versa. Uncompleted and unreleased for many years, Mummy and Curse of the Jackal finally saw the light of day on videotape.
