He was to remain sealed inside his sarcophagus; the undead for all of eternity. The Medjai will never allow him to be released, for he would arise a walking disease. A plague upon mankind. An unholy flesh-eater with the strength of ages, power over the sands, and the glory of invincibility!
~ The Narrator describing Imhotep's mummification and the consequences of releasing him from his slumber.

Similar to Zombies and Skeletons, Mummies are the Undead usually depicted as reanimated corpses preserved via mummification, hence the name - they are believed to have supernatural powers such as curses and/or magic beyond Zombies or Skeletons and thus seen as the higher undead much like Liches, Vampires and/or revenants.

Commonly Egyptian, they are among the most popular movie monsters of all time, with Imhotep being an iconic example of Mummies depicted in films.
