Within a decade of opening the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, Eight members of the original excavation team were dead. Egyptians have long held that the "Pharaoh's Curse," hangs over Tut's resting place, deep in the Valley of the Kings. Local diggers refused to participate in the initial investigation, believing that those who enter and disturb Tut's tomb will find themselves face to face with the wrath of Egypt's boy-King. Guards and visitors report voices, apparitions, and strange temperature fluctuations inside the tomb. Though his famous Death Mask is housed in the Museum in Cairo, Tut's actual mummified corpse remains interred in his pitch-black tomb.


There, in the ancient necropolis for Egypt's pharaohs, new reports are emerging that Tut still reigns supreme. Last year, when his mummy was temporarily exhumed for computer analysis, the power went out, and the CT scanner failed and one of the scientists suddenly became ill. According to locals, in the midnight hour a ghostly chariot drawn by black horses can be seen speeding through the lonely ruins near the entrance to Tut's burial chamber. Witnesses claim the chariot's driver is none other than the tormented King himself, who travels through the valley under cover of darkness seeking revenge on those who would disturb his peace.
