Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Obscure horror film, that deserves to be buried. Rated: C+ Sep 21, 2015 Full Review Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy The human element of the film has a warped tone that makes the whole thing far more interesting than its mummy attacks would suggest.

DanTheMan 2 If you thought the Egyptian flashback in the original was long, Shroud will make you hold its beer. The final Hammer production to be made at Bray Studios, The Mummy's Shroud offers more of exactly the same thing you've seen from Hammer twice before. Granted there are still plenty of elements to like about this one, it's a little bit more gruesome than the previous movies with some rather elaborate murders, John Gilling's colourful direction and chaotic framing, the rather stunning climax and Roger Delgado (The Master from Doctor Who) as the villain, who is just awesome despite the subpar dialogue. Granted this is probably the worst-designed Mummy of the lot, but it moves much faster and almost silently than the two previous ones making it much more deadly. With a bit more gore to its name and a much lower budget than the others, The Mummy's Shroud is still an entertaining ride from start to finish that more than puts the latter Universal sequels to shame. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/11/23 Full Review Curtis C Mildly entertaining movie about Egyptian mummies. Yes, it is 'another' mummy movie, similar in some regards as other early mummy movies and with some different twists. As in real life situations the characters responded differently based on their personalities/idiosyncrasies. This was about actors who had to actually act, to project drama, fear, evil, rather than just using a new CGI software update to shock & awe the easily influenced. The locations, set deck, and special effects guys had to have talent, creativity, and imitation rather than just using CGI. The arab gypsy with her crystal ball was an interesting addition. Also a plus, no vulgarity, skin, or gore. Enjoy! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/23 Full Review dave s Things get off to a remarkably bad start with a lengthy, pointless and horribly executed prologue that supposedly sets the table for what is to follow but really just serves to pad The Mummy's Shroud's running time. From that point onwards, things screech to a halt and the standard mummy plot plays itself out – scientists disturb a sacred burial site, activating a slow-moving but deadly mummy, who kills the offending members of the party. Rarely has a mummy film been so dull and by the time the killings eventually start, you really just don't care anymore. And a tip to those on the verge of being assaulted by a mummy – run away…they don't move that fast. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member It's pretty much the same plot as the previous films, but cheaper and with more more generic characters. There aren't any interesting twists or memorable kills, or anything that really could stand out. The Mummy's death sequence was pretty nice though. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member not so much i think the worst hammer pic hear Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Hammer Studios always gave much more of a story to their mummy films than did Universal in the classic series of B pictures that established the conventions of the mummy subgenre. This is perhaps the strongest example of that -- most of the usual mummy's revenge themes established in the Universal movies don't even begin until you are a substantial way into this film. It remains a less than classic movie but it does have an interesting story and one that is at least somewhat original for the mummy subgenre. The acting is decent, especially that of Michael Ripper as a much put upon lesser character. Decent entertainment of the 60s horror type.
