Museum curator Faussier (Jean-Francois Balmer) brings in noted Egyptologist Glenda Spencer to examine the findings, and she announces that the mummy inside the coffin was actually the evil spirit Belphegor. Lisa, who lives across the street from the museum, follows her runaway cat into the museum after closing time and accidentally gets a shock that sends the stray spirit into her body. Soon Lisa is disguising herself as Belphegor and making off with the rare Egyptian treasures on display at the museum, convinced that they are rightfully hers. When “Belphegor” proves more than a match for the Louvre’s security forces, renowned detective Verlac is brought out of retirement to find out why the museum’s Egyptian collection has been shrinking.

the lesser of all Belphégors
After putting a mummy in a local museum goes through the cat-scan, a metal object in it’s brain reacts adversely to the procedure, thus freeing the spirit,or phantom if you will, of the mummy, Belphegor. Due to convenient circumstances, Lisa, who lives close to the museum finds herself possessed by the evil spirit. Soon enough she’s stealing the museum’s Egyptian treasures out from under their nose. Detective Verlac comes out of retirement to catch the supernatural thief.
This is a serviceable enough, if you haven’t seen any other incarnations of “Belphégor” before. If you have, I recommend skipping this particular version as it can’t help but pale in comparison to the others despite the nice locals and scenery.It plays out like a (slightly) higher budgeted Sci-Fi Original film, and I don’t really mean that as a compliment.
Eye Candy: Sophie Marceau shows ass & side boob
My Grade: C-
DVD Extras: none
It´s all my fault. They all told me I should avoid seeing this movie because I´m a huge fan of the old TV-series. They were right. While production values are good and the actors themselves (including “don´t look now”) Julie Christie aren´t that bad, the whole film displays a cheekiness and self-conciousness that clearly is without any justification. A comparison between the Karloff “Mummy” and “The Mummy Returns 2000” comes to my mind. In fact Belphegore 2000 owes much more to the new Mummy films than to the old series. But then, scripting is terrible, speed there is none and sometimes the film is full of unintentional jokes (The first scene in the tomb looks plain stupid), with cats clearly being thrown when they´re supposed to jump (landing with their backfeet first). Belphegore moves around like a statue on wheels neither impressive nor scary and the psychological drama that unfolded in the old tv series when the heroine had to learn that she´s a villain is completely neglected. This movie is so WASTED (wasted money, wasted actors, wasted blueprint) that it hurts. It´s a below-par Mummy-rip off that´s only good for some laughs but has nothing at all to do with the Greco classic (She has a small role in this movie too – on the graveyard).
