Gotta love those half-monkey, lightning-shooting mummies. A real staple of the horror genre.
Interesting but completely useless fact:
Due to remakes, sequels and debut films, the 1980s is the only decade to possess movies with pretty much every major movie monster - Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman, the Mummy, Creature of the Black Lagoon, the Fly, the Blob, the Thing, Freddy, Jason, Michael, Pinhead, Chucky, Alien, Predator, Jaws, King Kong and Godzilla.
No other decade can claim this.
