OK Hammer schlock not the most interesting but still likable, 23 December 2008
Author: t-birkhead from United Kingdom

I haven't seen many of Hammer's forays into the world of murdering mummies, in fact aside from this one th only other that I can clearly recall seeing is The Mummy's Shroud. This is a surprisingly slow film, with a decent and nicely grisly opening that gives way to an unfortunate slowdown, not helped by the wonky script and slightly uninvolving atmosphere. The acting ranges from serviceable to a bit weak, with Ronald Howard pretty good as a hero, Jack Gwillim good as the leader of the ill fated archaeological expedition that results in the rising of the mummy and Fred Clark irritating, perhaps intentionally so as a gauche American patron. The supporting characters and extras are by and large pretty bad and fatally the film fails to conjure up much atmosphere when the mummy is absent. Still, the film chugs along, keeping just the right side of boredom and handling the all important curse explanation quite nicely, until the mummy gets down to business and the film heads for fun times until the end. He's a mouldering, frightening and vicious character, offing people with vigour and violence and adding a much needed booster shot of schlocky panache. Combine this good work with a pleasing end twist and we have a sweetly satisfying second half. For all the earlier longeurs and the fact that as both a writer and a director, Michael Carreras is one of the weaker of the various Hammer talents, the film ends up a pretty good experience. So, if you dig this sort of thing this is worth a look, but just remember its a bumpy ride.
