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.

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!]]>

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!
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.Read more ›

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!

Love these old "scared me"when a kid don't make em like they use to.Published 7 months ago by Romantic
I guess Tony Curtis was desperate for work when he made this as an older man. It was slow and fairly cheesy but at least I made it all the way through it. I have seen worse.Published 11 months ago by Sherala
Movie was ok ... better than I anticipated but not one of the best in this genre. Was interested in seeing Tony Curtis and was somewhat disappointed in his acting.Published on January 20, 2013 by Amazon Customer
