Audience Reviews for The Mummy's Shroud
Not a bad little addition to the Hammer catalogue. Like 'The Reptile', 'Plague of the Zombies' and 'The Witches' this film doesn't feature Hammer regulars Lee and Cushing but Morell is on hand for good support (although not for long!) and once again Ripper is given a decent amount to do and puts in the best acting performance. The mummy looks hust like a guy in a thin boiler suit and some of it is laughable but Phillips is good as the cowardly villain, it's nice to see Roger Delgado (aka The Master) chewing up the scenary and the final discintigration of the mummy is well handled. Not scary compared to horror today this is still pretty enjoyable.
The Mummy's Shroud is kind of a formulaic Hammer film which like most monster movies of this kind is somewhat dull, but has a few great scenes. Those scenes are mainly in the way of a sweet monster (one of the best mummies I've ever seen) and some great killings (the mousy Mr. Longbarrow's demise was as gruesome as it was magnificent.) The Aimee Mann lookalike and the direction didn't hurt even if the acting and the story didn't exactly help. I'm not the world's biggest mummy fan so my opinion shouldn't be the most trusted here.
