      Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy With so much misfiring in The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb, the absence of even a satisfyingly creepy mummy is an absolute film-killing flaw.

      Dave S If there is one sure thing in life it is the fact that movies about mummies, notably those made by Universal and Hammer, all follow the same plot – foreigners descend on Egypt, tamper with sacred artifacts, and are methodically killed by a lumbering mummy with vengeance on his mind. To its credit, The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb faithfully sticks to the formula. This also works to its detriment as the whole thing is very predictable. In typical Hammer fashion, the production values are quite good throughout, but you can’t shake the feeling that you’ve seen it all before…many times before. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/29/24 Full Review Joel H The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb feels very similar to its predecessor, The Mummy (1959). And while I have to give this movie a hand for a few shocking moments, it takes over an hour for any mummy-ing to actually happen. Before that, it's mostly just a series of long, dry conversations. I did enjoy Fred Clark's performance as Alexander King, the opportunistic American businessman, and I appreciated the fact that the mummy did more than just choke people. Nevertheless, The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb plods along the same path most mummy movies have trodden, without adding anything special to the formula. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 11/05/23 Full Review DanTheMan 2 A much more minor affair from Hammer, The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb feels like the B-side of a double feature. That said, the film isn't a slouch in the visual department, with Director Michael Carreras making excellent use of Otto Heller's incredible photographic eye, even going the extra mile to be shot in Techniscope. The lack of big names in its cast, outside of a minor role from Hammer regular Michael Ripper, is a big sign of the movie's small budget, with other obvious signs being the recycled sets and seemingly stock music. There's enjoyment to be had amidst the movie's flaws, very much like the original, although, like its titular character, it drags its feet, especially during the first half. It thankfully picks up during the second half having managed to get all the dreary details and mild inconveniences out of the way. The film is certainly eerie and contains a great use of atmosphere that Hammer have gotten down to a tee, but does ultimately just retread similar ground to what you've already seen before just with less likeable characters. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Hammer Horror...such a British institution for so many years. It may be a shadow of its former self nowadays but the films from its heyday are still revered as classic horror movies. Even if most wouldn't scare an infant (The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb only has a 12-age rating) now. British archaeologists and their American investor ship an Egyptian mummy's sarcophagus to London but someone has the amulet to revive the mummy that will then kill all those who disturbed its tomb. It's a slow burner of a movie spending large chunks dealing with the history of the mummy. These moments aren't exactly thrilling .All of that aside though, The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb does still have a bit of charm about it. It's certainly not a boring flick & the mummy itself looks pretty damn cool. Not the best that Hammer Horror has to offer but certainly not the worst. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Great campy fun for the old die hard. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review andy f This Hammer production takes a while to get going and even when it does it doesn't really get on fire. The mummy looks good though!
