Created by Sam Rami because he couldnt' secure the rights to THE SHADOW. Fun movie, still good to watch. The two direct to video sequels were okay and helped start a couple of careers. The two sequels are on Netflix streaming.

I used to love the heck out of this movie. Until I was thoroughly disillusioned.

Going back to the sixties, there was a show called Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot. And a few months back a friend loaned me his dvd collection so I could relive my childhood. And one of the villains in an episode was the Space Mummy (see attached pic).

Now of course the appearances are superficial, right? Ugly dude covered in bandages, wearing a black hat and trench coat. Fine. Until one part of the episode, when one of the heroes is captured by members of the Gargoyle gang disguised as nuns, and the head nun removes her mask to reveal she is the Space Mummy!

So, horribly disfigured guy dressed in bandages and black hat and trench coat, who is also a master of disguise. Sound familiar?
