Beautiful…both the actress and the film!
27 January 2004 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Blood from the mummy's tomb is a ravishing addition to the mummy genre…the most stylish and elegant sub genre of horror. Based on writings by Bram Stoker and produced by the British expert company Hammer ( near the end of their reign in the field ), this film is not to be missed by fans of breath-taking stories, stunning legends and historical settings. Margaret ( the astonishing beauty and hottie, Valerie Léon ) often suffers from nightmares in which she dreams about an ancient Queen of Darkness ( the astonishing beauty and hottie, Valerie Léon ). Due to the confessions of her father and his fellow Egyptologists, Margaret soon finds out that she shares a lot more with Queen Tera then just the good looks. Possessed by the Egyptian Queen and influenced by a greedy vulture-scientist, Margaret slowly becomes the resurrection of Tera. I've read quite a share of negative reviews on this film but I strongly disagree…perhaps I'm a bit biased because I love mummies and stories about the ancient Egypt, but even from a subjective point of view, I think this film belongs to the greatest last efforts Hammer achieved. James Villiers gives away the best acting performance as Corbeck. He's an unscrupulous scientist who clearly enjoys the diabolical games he plays. Lovely!! Blood from the Mummy's Tomb breaths an irresistible atmosphere and makes great use of terrific relics and settings. The film also contains a rather large amount of gruesome sequences and bloody make-up. …But, why am I typing all these things to convince you?!? Perhaps it's enough to tell you that the heavenly beauty Léon has multiple cleavage scenes!!
