Editorial Reviews

A small archeological party headed by Sir Basil Walden (Andre Morell) discover the hidden tomb of Kah-to-Bey. Despite a warning from the wild-eyed guardian, Hamid Ali (Roger Delgado), they take Kah-to-Bey to Cairo and place him next to the mummy of Prem, his devoted slave and protector. The mystical hieroglyphic shroud that covers Kah-to-By's body is read aloud by Ali and restores Prem to life resulting in an unstoppable progression of madness, mysteryy and murder. The Mummy's Shroud was the last Hammer film to be shot at Bray Studios which marked the end of a sixteen year association.

As a devoted fan of gothic horror, I can say that this double feature was a real treat. It contains two beautiful Hammer classics that deal with the living dead. Released in 1966, when Hammer Production was at its peak, both movies make great midnight viewing.

"The Mummy's Shroud" takes place primarily in Cairo, Egypt in 1920. An archaeological team has found the mummified remains of a child who was an Egyptian prince in 2000 B.C. Naturally, there is a curse that begins killing everyone who entered the sacred tomb. What distinguishes this mummy feature from all the others? It is the prince's mummified servant who is brought to life and kills. Some of the deaths are quite gruesome, especially that of the man who is thrown onto his bed, wrapped up in his sheets, and tossed out the window - quite heart pounding. The shroud that was stolen from the mummified prince must be found; only it can stop the violence.

"The Plague of the Zombies" is set in the English countryside of the 1800s. It is action packed from beginning to end and has a high body count. At least twelve villagers have died under mysterious circumstances when a doctor arrives to investigate a plague. Upon further investigation, it is learned that their graves are empty. How and why have the dead risen? There is a conspiracy involving a rich man who controls the village and the evil young men who are living with him. Blood sacrifices, voodoo rituals, and an abandoned mine play important roles in this creepy, atmospheric gothic horror. I only wish Hammer Production had made more zombie features as they did with the vampire, mummy, and Frankenstein monster.

This DVD is highly recommended for fans of gothic horror, Hammer films, and the living dead. "The Mummy's Shroud" and "The Plague of the Zombies" are perfect together, especially since they were both produced by Anthony Nelson-Keys and directed by John Gilling.

Hammer's third Mummy film follows a fairly typical script, but is overall better than most people give it credit for. A tomb is disturbed and a curse is put on all those who entered the tomb, sound familiar?The films is somewhat slow, but really picks up about a half an hour into it. The excavation set was better than I thought, but the museum looked more like a small storage area than a place where valuable artifacts would be housed. The mummy overall looked pretty good. There is one scene that always bothered me and that is when David Buck puts a hatchet into it's neck, you can tell it is a dummy that is maybe 2/3's the size of the guy playing the mummy. It is really kind of bad when you look at the earlier impaling scene which looks pretty good, but I would think that scene would have mush harder to do than a hatchet in the shoulder. I also got a little annoyed at the gypsy women who overacts to the hilt. Still, this film has a fairly good cast and it remains interesting. This is probably Michael Ripper's best role for Hammer and it certainly better than it's companion film Frankenstein created woman.

That's the tagline for The Mummy's Shroud (1967), adapted for the screen and directed by John Gilling, a prolific artist mainly associated with Hammer films whose best film, in my opinion, was 1967' Plague of the Zombies, and, while `Shroud' may not measure up to that film, it's certainly worth a look. The film brings together a fairly strong cast, including André Morell (Plague of the Zombies), John Phillips (Village of the Damned), David Buck, host for the 60's British Television show Mystery and Imagination, Michael Ripper (The Reptile), and Maggie Kimberly (The Conqueror Worm).

As the film begins, we're in ancient Egypt, as a tale of a greed and deception unfolds, one that leads to the untimely death of a young pharaoh named Kah-to-Bey, and also of his sworn protector/slave named Prem. Fast-forward to the 1920's, and we now bare witness to a British archeological team, led by Sir Basil Walden (Morell) seeking to locate the tomb of Kah-to-Bey. Also included in the group is Paul Preston (Buck), whose father is financing the entire affair, Claire, assistant to Sir Basil, and a photographer who's name isn't really important as it soon becomes apparent through lack of character development he'll probably meet his maker in the not too distant future (and he does). The search has yet to bear fruit, and things go from bad to worse as the team doesn't return and is thought lost in the expansive deserts of Egypt.

John Gilling's THE MUMMY'S SHROUD is perhaps one of the best of the late 60s Hammer films. I first saw this as a kid on Saturday afternoon TV over 20 years ago and it made a big impact. Though the premise of the film seems overused, the story is nonetheless gripping. The cinematography is quite stunning and the use of colors exquisite. There is a genuine sense of foreboding throughout the film. The casting for the film is decidedly low-key, but bigger Hammer stars may have diluted the script. As for the technical aspects of the DVD, its rates among the best of the Hammer series. The picture is clear and the color brilliant. The soundtrack is amazing in its fidelity. The extras of the DVD add even more value to this wonderful package. Highly recommended!
