Mummy Lives, The (DVD)

In the name of profits, the tomb is opened. In the name of vengeance, the curse springs alive. From ancient ashes and mummified wrappings a mysterious being arises and becomes flesh. "I am the protector of the dead," he intones. But he will do more than play Grim Reaper to mortals who defy the tomb's sanctity. He wants to reclaim the woman he loves. Past and present converge with terrifying results in this gripping tale inspired by horror master Edgar Allan Poe's Some Words with a Mummy. Tony Curtis plays Dr. Mohassid, a reincarnated soul whose undying love has deadly consequences. Since his arrival, venemous serpents writhe, phantoms stalk and a certain young woman's nightmares erupt into even more frightful days. The tomb is open. Enter at your own risk!

Certainly not one of Tony's best efforts. Much of the script is laughable, but the story line is better than comparable low budget films from this period.

You know the plot. Ancient Egyptian Princess and Priest fall in love, break the rules, get burried alive only to be resurected when archeologists find the un-marked tomb. Like the original Karlof, this mummy looks pretty much normal once the bandages come off.

I can't give this one more than 2 stars, but it still has a spot in my movie cabinet!

"The Mummy Lives" is an American direct-to-video flick from 1993 starring Tony Curtis in the titular role when he was 67 years-old. The plot's typical to older mummy movies: Forbidden love in the ancient Egyptian world results in the guilty guy getting entombed alive, usually with the object of his desire. In the modern day the tomb is desecrated by archaeologists and the mummy seeks vengeance. The refreshing twist here is that when Curtis' character is resurrected he looks like his normal self, at least his face anyway; his hands look like death itself. Leslie Hardy plays a woman interested in Egyptology and she may be the Mummy's beloved, Kia, reincarnated. Greg Wrangler plays a psychologist who takes interest in her.

This is a drama/mystery with light horror elements so don't expect heavy gore and scares. While it's clearly low-budget, it has numerous strengths, particularly the basic fish-out-of-water plot with the ancient mummy becoming a pretty interesting character in the modern world. I'm not sure how he knows how to speak English though, but I assume the god he prays to gives him the knowledge/power.

In any case, the Mummy's offended by the desecrations of Egyptian crypts and points out the obvious: How can archaeologists justify desecrating burial sites? How much time has to go by for such activity to be deemed acceptable in the name of research and science? The Mummy also makes a great point to the woman: The modern world is science-oriented, but passionless; and without passion there is no life. While the Mummy is a somewhat fascinating character and you find yourself rooting for him, the ending drops the ball.

The mummified priest Aziru is awoken from his slumber to protect the tombs of Luxor after a group of Egyptologists begin excavating a new dig. In the midst of unleashing his wrath on the trespassers, he is reunited with the reincarnation of his lost love, before being stopped during a final resurrection ceremony. THE MUMMY LIVES benefits from gorgeous set designs, coloring, and cinematography, which makes it one of the more visually interesting mummy films. Unfortunately, it is bogged down by a series of poor performances and a derivative plot. Tony Curtis could not be any more out of place as Aziru / Dr. Mohassid, where he constantly fades in and out of a ridiculous accent while bringing an unintentional humor to the role. Hardy is uninspired and emotionless as the leading lady driving the mummy's desire, which renders the classic love story of the mummy films entirely ineffective. In addition to the excellent make-up and costume designs that are briefly shown for the mummy itself, there are also a few surprisingly gruesome moments hidden throughout the film. While it certainly isn't the definitive version of the story, THE MUMMY LIVES makes a valid effort at retelling the tale with a big look and feel on a small budget, even if it doesn't fully succeed in the end.

You know that your career is over when you stoop to doing a movie like this. I think that his career began to slide when he did so many of the sex romp comedy farces in the sixties. His turns in The Boston Strangler and Lepke were outstanding but it was to late, his career was already doomed. He made many, many great movies in the early to mid point of his career. A little known fact about Curtis, he was a crew member aboard the U.S.S. Missouri when the Japanese signed the surrender papers in Tokyo harbor in 1945.

This is not the worst mummy movie ever made. Tony Curtis plays the mummy
and I think he saves the movie! The girl is pretty but boring and the
doctor who tries to save her is even more boring. The story is quite
good if you like a good mystery and has enough killings to keep you
interested. I've seen worse! much worse! good little mummy movie!
