October 1906 a team of archaeologists start the excavation of King Anum deep within the pyramids of Egypt.
In the process an evil curse is released and the whole team of archaeologists die!

Rumour has it that the archaeologists were in fact looking for a hidden treasure deep within the tomb - a red coloured stone believed to be the heart of King Anum

The heart is in the chest of King Anum now a Mummy locked within the tomb
