Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Hammer could never resist dabbling with the dark forces of ancient Egypt, but this third descent into the mummy's tomb was one of the studio's least accomplished horrors. After dwelling a bit too long in the land of the pharaohs, the action shifts to 1920 as André Morell's expedition ventures into the vault. We know it's doomed because a) it's sponsored by treasure-seeking rogue John Phillips and b) local malcontent Roger Delgado knows the spell to revive the avenging mummy. There are some particularly grisly murders and a terrific finale, but it's mostly dry as dust.
