Tame mummy movie but Valerie makes it worthwhile,
This review is from: Blood From the Mummy's Tomb (DVD)
Looking over all the reviews on this film, I expected it be great but found it to be very tame and somewhat disappointing.
There were hardly any scares, the death scenes were tame, and the gore was very, very unrealistic. I wasn't too surprised that this was the last Hammer movie made. There have been better movies using the whole reincarnation mummy /egyptian thing but this one doesn't quite pull it off.
There is a lot of style though, a nice musical score, and a beautiful lead by Valerie Leon, but style doesn't mean much without content. Like someone said in a previous review, there is no real terror and no physical threat.
The director also died before the film was finished, so there were a few problems with the production of the film.
It's an ok horror movie if you like movies with a lot of style, but if you're really looking to get scared and seeking a bit more from this genre, you might seek another title.
