Critic Reviews for Russell Mulcahy's Tale of the Mummy
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
Tale of The Mummy(1998) Starring: Jason Scott Lee, Louise Lombard, Sean Pertwee, Lysette Anthony, Michael Lerner, Jack Daveport, Honor Blackman, Shelly Duvall, and Christopher Lee Directed By: Russell Mulcahy Review The curse is legend. The terror is real. Hello Kiddies your pal the crypt-critic here and you know what monster I've never liked, The Mummy. Mummies have always bored me. This film is a triumph at boring me tonight. When an archaeological expedition opens an ancient Egyptian tomb, the unimaginable evil of a cursed pharaoh is unleashed. Dealing with the standard plot points of the mummified undead (curses, reincarnation, deadly linen), it manages to them so lame because the characters are boring but I will give the film two things, The Mummies wrapping in toil tree powers were cool and did a decent job at bringing the mummy to modern time. Apparently this is a straight to video horror film, well no wonder it wasn't that engaging and the CG was shit. But yet somehow it got Christopher Lee in this movie for it's opening. Tale of The Mummy doesn't help me like The Mummy monster but does let me see the potential with it's cool wrapping powers. I'm giving Tale of The Mummy a two and a half out of five.
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
