Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb

This polished and well-acted but rather tame Hammer horror entry revolves around an exploration group who discovered an ancient Egyptian tomb and brought relics, including the Princess Tera's mummy; home to England. The sacrilege is savagely avenged by Tera being reincarnated in the leader's beautiful daughter.

This polished and well-acted but rather tame Hammer horror entry revolves around an exploration group who discovered an ancient Egyptian tomb and brought relics, including the Princess Tera’s mummy; home to England. The sacrilege is savagely avenged by Tera being reincarnated in the leader’s beautiful daughter.

Valerie Leon has the dual role of the princess and the modern miss who brings a reign of terror to a quiet London suburb. Solid support comes from Andrew Keir, James Villiers, Hugh Burden, George Coulouris, Rosalie Crutchley and James Cossins who bring credence to the proceedings.

Director Seth Holt died suddenly a few days before shooting was completed and the lack of his guiding hand through post-production could explain, without justifying, certain vagaries and roughness.
