Amara was once the beautiful Princess of Egypt. Now, 4000 years later, she and her coffin are merely prized exhibits of the Charles Ward Museum. If you were to look at her today, you would see only a brittle bundle of bones and dried skin. But looks can be very deceiving, as Barney, the museum's night watchman, finds out. . . . Barney is the first to make the shocking discovery that the mummy's coffin has been broken open. But he doesn't have a chance to do anything about it. Amara is once again freed from the cramped confines of her coffin, free to walk the earth. Free to kill. Nothing can satisfy her bloodlust. And no one can stop her. You cannot kill what is already dead.
