An archaeological expedition brings back to London the coffin of an Egyptian queen known for her magic powers. Her spirit returns in the form of a young girl and strange things starts to happen. Written by
On the night before her anniversary, Margaret Fuchs (Valerie Leon) receives an ancient Egyptian ring with a red stone as a birthday gift from her father, Prof. Julian Fuchs (Andrew Keir). Margaret has frequent nightmares about an expedition in Egypt with five members, including her father, finding the tomb of Queen Tera, an evil sorcerer with a severed hand. The members collect the sarcophagus with a totally preserved mummy, the severed hand with the ring with a red stone, and three relics. Margaret is possessed by the spirit of Tera and chases the expedition members to retrieve the objects and gives life back to Tera.
"Blood from the Mummy's Tomb" is only a reasonable Hammer horror movie. The locations and the cinematography are beautiful; Valerie Leon is extremely gorgeous, with a sexy body, amazing eyes and a very beautiful face; the story is not bad; but something is missing in the screenplay to make this movie a classic. The ambiguous characters of Margaret and Prof. Julian Fuchs are quite confused, and it is not clear whether the father wants to protect her daughter or help Tera. This movie entertains, but had potential to be better and better. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Sangue no Sarcófago da Múmia" ("Blood in the Sarcophagus of the Mummy")
