Our Score
Statuesque Valerie Leon is possessed by the spirit of an ancient Egyptian queen in this cult Hammer horror based on Bram Stoker's The Jewel of Seven Stars. With hardly a bandage in sight, director Seth Holt tried to radically rethink the mummy genre, and largely succeeded in creating a fascinating fantasy with a uniquely menacing atmosphere dripping in delicious irony. Sadly, Holt died during shooting; Hammer boss Michael Carreras took over and the film is not as interesting as it should have been. The same story was the basis for The Awakening in 1980.

Summary

Archaeologists return from Egypt with the mummy of a princess - whose spirit then sets about exacting vengeance for the desecration of her resting place. Hammer horror, starring Valerie Leon. Andrew Keir and George Coulouris.
