Death is only the beginning.
~ Words of Imhotep
Similar to Zombies and Skeletons, Mummies are undead villains whom usually depicted as reanimated corpses that are preserved via mummification, hence the name - they are often believed to have supernatural powers such as curses and magic, beyond the standard powers of a zombie or skeleton and are thus seen as a "higher undead" much like Liches, Vampires or some Revenants.

Commonly Egyptian, these creatures are among the most popular movie monsters of all time. The most well-known mummy is the first of the genre, Imhotep.
