It is not by any means a good film. Nor is it the peer of melodramas. But it does offer a certain thrill to those who are looking for such things.

One looks forward with vivid expectation to seeing how the centuries-dead creature will react to the sights and sounds of the present day. But the further the story goes, the more thoroughly it lapses into the worn-out hocus-pocus of melodrama.

The Mummy, although It reveals that master of makeup Karloff in the weirdest of his movie disguises to date, is somewhat less horrifying than Frankenstein and less skilfully produced than Dracula, which it seems to resemble in its general design.

Thoroughly unreasonable hocus-pocus.

The photography is superior to the dialogue.
