  • A man is warned not to steal the jewels or touch the mummy, so he pays the price in the end

    8.1
    This episode definitely lives up to its name. One of the curses put on the man for stealing the jewels and not giving the mummy back is that he is always covered in beetles. If you like episodes and stories about mummies or Egyptian stories, then you will enjoy this episode. It's not that original, however, and the ending is close to the Creepshow ending of "They're Creeping Up on you" about the roaches. Overall, an interesting episode that isn't original and the ending is predictable-but good anyway. The mummy doesn't come to life, so that was a little disappointingmoreless
