Unless you find the idea of killer mummy wraps particularly frightening, chances are you'll find this direct-to-vid thriller as ridiculous as I did.

Not bad but poor CGI muffles the scares.

Audience Reviews for Russell Mulcahy's Tale of the Mummy

Dull in every corner and every bit of the Movie.

This really was a poor film , full of corny lines , bad acting and dull special effects. You could tell the director is not English as all the characters were because of some stupid steriotypical moments such as red phone boxes in ever street scene,lemon tea being drunk by bobby's and whats with everyone carrying a gun??? This was not Across 110th Street!.Apart from that the film was dull. Dont confuse this film with THE MUMMY because although the mummy wasnt a masterpiece it was far better than this fair. If you wanna be scared dont bother with this tripe

Director Russell Mulcahy's film is an okay diversion, but lacks the appeal and thrills needed to make it grand entertainment.
