The B-Movie Cast is back! This episode Mary and Nic are joined by our resident Egyptologist, Eric Brooks, to look at a film about another Egyptologist: “The Ghoul” from 1933. Considered the first true British horror film after the silent film era, “The Ghoul” features Boris Karloff playing Henry Morlant, a dying Egyptologist who is obsessed with the idea that he can enter the Egyptian afterlife if he rises from the dead and gives an ancient jewel to the God Anubis. Unfortunately for Morlant, everyone and their uncle seems to know about the jewel and want it for their own nefarious purposes. So grab yourself a cold one and tune in for episode 454: “The Ghoul”.
