The Mummy: Fun to Watch, but Not That Scary

I can't stand the new horror films that they're making today. They're gross, bloody and the story lines are terrible. Whatever happened to the classic old monster-driven horror movies, like the Werewolf, Frankenstein, Phantom of the Opera, Dracula and the Mummy. Well, maybe not the Mummy. That is one old horror film that I look back at now and can see that it was pretty lame. I was watching it the other day in my buddy's home theater, and at today's standards, it looks pretty lame. For one, the Mummy moves at about 1 mile per hour, shuffling along at a snail's pace. But when he approaches his victims, do they run away? No, they just stand there screaming, frozen in place, so that the Mummy can just amble up and strangle them. C'mon..make it a little more plausible than that!
