30 years after the "Golden Turkey Awards," I'm reviewing as many films described (by anybody)as so-bad-it's-good as possible.

Bram Stoker's Legend of the Mummy 2 (1999)
aka Ancient Evil: Scream of the Mummy
How bad is it? Awful. Just awful. Should you see it? No.
When people say David DeCoteau is one of the worst directors, I think fondly of his "Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama," but he really hasn't done anything in the 110 films since then. This has nothing to do with the film it's supposedly a sequel to, nor with any story by Bram Stoker. It's a standard mummy movie, with a heavier than usual mummy (but decent makeup) and less action.Ten minutes of the run time are credits, much of the rest is people wandering around pointlessly. Five students get locked (improbably) in with the mummy and one of them just happens to be descended from an Egyptian high priest - I think - honestly, I stopped caring.
