A Sick Chick Flick Original Film
Blood of the Mummy
A true labor of love, Christine and the women of Sick Chick Flicks Productions have worked for 2 years on their latest feature film Blood of the Mummy. Using all the resources that North Carolina has to offer they were able to take people on a journey back in time to ancient Egypt where an ancient curse has modern day repercussions. From the palace of the Emperor Seti, to a modern day dig in Egypt, and ultimately to an insane asylum where a young woman struggles to make sense of it all, this story will have you in its grip from beginning to gory end.
The Mummy’s Curse has plagued Louise since the horrific deaths of her parents during their discovery of the tomb of Princess Ananka over two decades ago. Now, a mysterious stranger has entered her life who may be the key to finally ending it. But, first she must reach into the dark, distant depths to face who she really is and learn the origin of the curse...
runtime 98 min.
Christine Parker began her film career in Sanford, North Carolina in 2004. She wrote and produced a short film “Second Death” that led to her forming Adrenalin Productions which has since produced more than a dozen films that include 5 feature films, two which were under distribution with Brain Damage films.
She drew inspiration for this film from her love of the old classic mummy films whose characters inspired the names used in this film. However, that is where the comparison ends as she endeavored to bring a new story to the classic trope by telling the story from the female protagonist's perspective and give greater insight of her bond with the mummy and why it is so hard for her to break it. The main character Louise's name is borrowed from a true story about Doris Louise Eady who as a young girl fell down a flight of stairs and awakened to recall her past life during the rule of the Egyptian Pharaoh Seti.

Interview with Derek Koch on Dread Media - This is an audio podcast
“This could have been Ms. Parker’s best film to date. On the slim budget she was able to bring together a great cast, a great story, and add some unexpected gore to the ‘mummy’ genre that doesn’t do much gore."
TIM GROSS / GROSS MOVIE REVIEWS
“I really loved the costume and set design. It’s not often you get to journey to ancient Egypt, and the team did a beautiful job at recreating this. The special effects were also delightfully bloody and gory. "
TORI DANIELLE / POP HORROR
"This is a carefully crafted story, with exceptional pacing throughout its 90-minute runtime that keeps things interesting while simultaneously building towards a satisfying climax that will leave audiences sated while still wanting more. Excellent screenwriting and storytelling, especially for an independent film."
