The Curse of Anubis
AIRED:
Dr. Ahmed Kareem steals the statue of Anubis from the Temple of Anubis. He plans to implicate an outsider for the theft, and unify Arab nations against the outside world. The outsider he chooses is Benton Quest! But his plan almost succeeds: he traps Dr. Quest and Race in an old tomb with the statue. There they will be found with the statue. In the end, he discovers the horrifying truth: the Curse of Anubis - death to those who violate his temple - is all too real. Anubis sends someone to retrieve his statue and punish Dr. Kareem.moreless

  • Recognize the voice of Dr. Karim?

    10
    Yep! That was Vic Perrin; better known as the Control Voice of the original "Outer Limits." The fanaticism he gave to Karim is no doubt why he was soon cast as the voice of the Fu Manchu-like Dr. Zin. In fact, if Kassim existed in real-life, today, he'd probably be a Muslim terrorist leader! And, that's why I give this episode a perfect ten. Because of the way it blended the best elements of the old-fashioned mummy movie, with its almost-prophetic depiction of politico-religious extremism. By that, I mean the Munich Olympic tragedy, which would occur a scant eight years later!moreless
  • A plot to start a war stirs up an ancient curse.

    Another great horror episode. Dr. Kareem, an Egyptian acquaintance of Dr. Quest, steals a revered statue from the temple of Anubis, planning to frame Quest for the theft in an effort to unite the Arab world against the West. He ignores ancient beliefs that desecration of the temple will invoke Anubis' curse. Unknown to him, a mummy in the temple stirs and follows him. There is plenty of action here as Kareem traps Quest and Race, and Jonny and Hadji lead Kareem's men on a lively chase. Kareem's extremism gives the episode an urgency that almost overshadows the chilling scenes of the mummy as it slowly, relentlessly closes in.moreless
