An archeologist crew, headed by prof. Turkel (Christopher Lee) discovers the tomb of Talos in Egypt, once a sinister and horrific prince during the reign of the pharaos. They realize too late that they are releasing a gruesome and evil force, but Turkel manages to seal the tomb by blowing up his party. Decades later his granddaughter Sam (Louise Lombard) follows her grandfathers footsteps and leads an expedition to find out what really happened. They discover the tomb and after some disturbing incidents, head back to London. At the time when a prestigious exhibition on Talos opens in the national museum, London is terrorized by mysterious murders, investigated by a young police officer (Jason Scott Lee). And then the real trouble still has to start.
