Disturbing version of Stoker's very disturbing "mummy" novel.
24 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is by a long way the best of the three adaptations so far of Bram Stoker's complex and disturbing novel of an Egyptologist's obsessive desire to revive an evil ancient Egyptian queen. (The novel was so worrying in 1903 that the ending was changed for the second edition: this movie keeps mainly to the original ending.) The cast ranges from competent to quite good, with the Queen/daughter suitably seductive but unreadable. The appearance is handsomely and oppressively Edwardian - the ancient Egyptian is rather silly

  • and the direction firm. Try this as a better taste of Stoker's obsessive


psychological horror than any of the versions of "Dracula" except the long British TV adaptation.
