Hammer's Shroud!
10 January 2008 | by (Bayamon, Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

Like almost all the Hammer movies, I saw this movie on TV on a Saturday afternoon when I was 8. I wasn't scared by it but I was entertained by it. The movie begins in ancient Egypt when the Pharaoh's wife gives birth and dies. The Pharaoh dedicates everything to his son (the future Pharaoh) Kah-to-Bey but little did he know that his brother was planning to take over. On one night the palace was attacked by the Pharaoh's brother. While the attack, Kah-to-Bey's bodyguard, Kremm, escaped with the Pharaoh's son to the desert. Later Kar-to-Bey dies in the desert and his bodyguard mummifies him and covers him with the sacred shroud. In the 1920 an expedition is sent to find the tomb of Kar-to-Bey. The expedition is led by Sir Basil Walden (played by Andre Morell) Archaeologist and son of the financier Paul Preston (played by David Buck), and linguist Claire de Sangre (played by Maggie Kimberly) but there is nothing known about the expedition or the members. The financier Stanley Preston (Played by John Phillips) orders a search party. While in the desert the Archeologists are trapped in a sand storm but after the storm settles they find a cave and inside they find a mad man speaking some kind of dialect warning them to keep away. Obviously, they didn't listen, later they are found by the search party and among them is the financier S. Preston who had come to ensure his investment on the expedition. Soon they find that the cave is the tomb of the Pharaoh's son. They find Kar-to-Bey and they take him to a museum but the shroud that accompanied the mummy mysteriously disappears. Then one by one, the members of the expedition are been killed by a mysterious force. This is a traditional mummy movie, explorers find tomb and are later hunted by the wrapped mummy. Nothing is new about it but it has an interesting story and characters are well developed. The actors take it seriously and this makes the story believable. This movie brings back great memories when movie didn't need CGI or complicated stories to make them entertaining. If you are a fan of classic horror from the 50s and 60s this you will definitely enjoy. So on a Saturday night order a pizza and some beers and enjoy Hammer's legacy of horror.
