A Great Mummy Movie!

I have to admit, I was a bit worried when I picked this baby up, but it shocked me for sure when I watched it. The awesome box cover pulled me in, but the movie is actually really good. Despite not having either Cushing or Lee, this film holds up because of the cast's seriousness and a very cool monster. Much like all mummy films, the curse to those that disturbed the mummy's tomb carries the plot of this sucker. That along with some drama about a "rich heartless father vs. handsome moral son" relationship and the girl mixed up in it and blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah . . .Who cares? We just wanna see mummies killin', right? And kill he does. Watch the close up of the centuries-old dust falling from his opening eyelids. Classic Hammer!
