THE MUMMY - Sideshow Illusions
Famed Egyptologist, Howard Carrington invites you to witness the ritual re-enactment of the legend of Atacomb... you will see beautiful Princess Elmira gradually and visibly transmogrify, before your eyes, into a 3,000 year old, terrifying, hideous Mummy!
As she dances and writhes, her clothes will slowly melt away. Her face will contort and her body twist into the living reincarnation of an ancient dead Pharoah. The excitement and anticipation begins before the spectators enter.
The queuing crowds see the 1950s Boris Karloff influenced frontage, see the audience tear out of the tent as they escape from the tomb.
The Mummy is an astonishing sideshow illusion dating directly back to it’s creation in 1862 and its appearance in 1872 as the Ghost Show on the Victorian fairgrounds of this country. Dare you enter?
