Thoroughly unreasonable hocus-pocus.

This vintage classic is more funny than scary.

Three Movie Buffs

Dated, but interesting if only to see the origin of the many Egyptian films that were to follow it.

Tom Hutchinson
Radio Times

Master photographer Karl Freund directs without shock tactics -- apart from the burying alive scene -- but with images of death and decay worthy of Edgar Allan Poe.

The first and (arguably) the best of the Mummy's stalk-a-thons.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A Dracula rip-off that is, in fact, considerably better than Dracula in almost every regard.

Combustible Celluloid

The film lacks the usual number of chills and thrills that one would expect from a 'horror' film, but this one draws you in with its mood instead.

The transformation of Karloff's Im-Ho-Tep from a clay-like figure in a coffin to a living thing is the highlight.

A bit slow, but Karloff at his peak. A true horror masterpiece.

The things that endure in moviedom from The Mummy are the pith helmets and fezzes, the ancient curses, the protective amulets, and the rational disdain for the supernatural that invariably comes back to haunt our heroes.
