Watching a documentary on Egyptian mummies

Q: A few days ago I was watching a documentary on YouTube about the king of Egypt named Tutankhamun. In this video, the youtuber said that after the death of this king, whoever passes by the mummy of this king, they died after few days. After this people started calling this mummy cursed.

Now some people commented and were asking that they are also in danger or not after they saw this video.

Also, in the video they showed the real pics of this mummy. I know that there is no concept of superstition in Islam. My question is that is this coincidence that people died after passing this mummy ? Not all the people died but some. People feel frightened because they saw real muumuy pics. 

A: Documentaries of animate objects are impermissible and viewing them is also wrong. Make taubah for this.

Filming this is wrong and believing in their baseless stories is even worse.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
