Our Score
After moderate success with The Mummy (1959), Hammer made several more films featuring the bandaged monster, though all lacked inspiration. In this, the second, there's the customary tomb opening, followed by the resurrection of its occupant. The mummy, played by forgotten bit player Dickie Owen, takes an unconscionably long time to go on its customary killing spree, though when the moment finally arrives, it does produce a few tense moments. There's also quite a nasty amputation scene.

Summary

Archaeologists exhume an Egyptian mummy and take him to Victorian London, where he shuffles off in search of revenge on his evil brother who has been cursed with eternal life. Uninspired Hammer horror rehashing a familiar tale, starring Terence Morgan, Ronald Howard and Fred Clark.
