The first horror movie I ever saw and still not beaten.
This is actually one of my most favourite horrors about ancient Egypt. From the archaeological and egyptological sides all fits (see name Ka-ra written in hieroglyphics that really corresponds to the signs and mean - the spirit of the sun). The scene with the tombs was made in one of the tombs discovered by Howard Carter in valley of the kings. I really think that this film can be appreciated only by those who like intelligent movies and who like ancient Egypt (and know about the place and history a lot like me). I am a big fan of Charleton Heston as well. Here You can see one of his best appearances. I didn't find a mistake on this film so the rating is 10/10.
