Easily the best out of The Mummy movies and maybe the best Hammer film. Not only is the Hammer "style" out in full force during this movie but but the acting, sets and, most importantly, the pace are 2nd to none. Christopher Lee coming out of the muddy waters is downright iconic. You can really see where some of todays directors get their “unstoppable foe” from as this mummy gets shot, stabbed and shot again… and still keeps coming. I’m hoping that Hammer brings this to US Blu Ray while Lee can still do any kind of extras he can. There are very few horror icons left and it would be a shame if we couldn’t get his word on things.

Good film but i think it lacks alot compared to the original first one the mummy , probally because of the acting off christopher lee and peter cushing in the first one is hard to top

This is almost like soft porn, rather than a horror film. Not as good as Twins of Evil or The Vampire Lovers. I'm sure even the presence of Peter Cushing couldn't save this one.

The name Barbara Shelley in the cast list caught my eye, but shame there is no information on this one.

By this stage, the gravel pit desert setting was looking too threadbare, but the gorgeous interior production design, photography and Michael Ripper make it worth watching.

Another apparently neglected gem from Hammer for them to show online.

I enjoyed this film. The lack of a twist made the thin storyline a little predictable, but it was nice seeing Christopher Lee back in a Hammer horror and the other cast members were good, especially Jeffrey Dean Morgan who was pathetic and creepy at the same time as the needy and dangerous antagonist. It's more of a psychological thriller.

I think this role really shows what a versatile and incredibly powerful presence Christopher Lee possesses, although the film does show the limitations of Hammer's resources, and filming it back to back with Dracula Prince of Darkness highlights the recycling of the over familiar sets to a distracting degree.

I think Hammer should consider this for their Youtube streaming page aswell?
