The Mummy DVD Review

Tech News

News Supplying Robot
The Mummy is fast-paced, colourful period horror from the stable that could do this sort of thing in its sleep. A lean narrative that only suffers from a couple of jarring flashbacks sees that The Mummy is not only cheerfully – and chillfully – episodic and entertaining, but that it delivers some clever and witty dialogue, too. Hammer would fall into the same trap as their forbears, Universal, and produce lacklustre sequels one after another, masking the vibrant quality of each individual horror franchise (Frankenstein and Dracula as well as The Mummy – although the Quatermass films actually got better as they went along), but for now, at least, you can enjoy the crusty, cloth-wrapped three-thousand-year-old malevolence of one of Christopher Lee’s most powerful, and potent, screen monsters. Recommended.
