Monsters Mash #8 Universal Cycle: The Mummy

9 years, 1 month ago at Sep 26 1:13
Boris Karloff was fresh off of Frankenstein and was ready to do the Mummy he was probably the first actor to play to off the most imitated monsters in cinema but don't be fooled this mummy doesn't stay in it bandages all the time [img id=1618895 width=500full] and it doesn't kills people mindlessly most of the time he's unwrapped and doesn't kill a lot of people as expected [img id=1618888 width=5... read more

Out of all the original Universal monster films, this one is easily the least fondly remembered. Even upon it's release it was much less well received than it's contemporaries, and only fares slightly better today. Truth is, it doesn't hold up as well as films like "Dracula" and "The Wolf Man" because it simply isn't as good. It starts off strong with a scene set in the night hours of Egypt, where... read more

Also found in the tomb is the Scroll of Thoth, a young member of the expedition reads the Scroll out loud, then goes insane, realizing that he has brought Im-Ho-Tep back to life.

“Out of all the original Universal monster films, this one is easily the least fondly remembered. Even upon it's release it was much less well received than it's contemporaries, and only fares slightly better today. Truth is, it doesn't hold up as well as films like "Dracula" and "The Wolf Man" because it simply isn't as good. It starts off strong with a scene set in the night hours of Egypt, where a recently unearthed mummy slowly comes to life and terrifies a young assistant. Sadly, nothing of this incredibly atmospheric caliber is seen again for the entire runtime.

Instead, the film casts Boris Karloff as more of an ancient magician than the shambling, monstrous mummies we think of today. While Karloff's performance is excellent, the film really just plods along. It's plot is ” read more

Horror Films Of The 1930's (15 movies items)

"Most of the original Universal horror films have maintained nearly spotless reputations amongst the horror community, and the broader cinematic landscape itself. This film is a strange exception. Most folks think of Mummies, when they think of pinnacle horror characters. But no adaptation of the subject matter has ever been met with critical acclaim. This film comes closest, but even historians often consider it to be miniscule compared to the other Universal offerings of it's day. And they're n"

"About 20 years since the last time seeing this as a kid, this time I didn't find Karloff's close-up shots scary and overall the movie was more boring than I remembered it being to be honest. So I dropped the rating a bit."

" - Rewatch | Second time The Mummy is all about the mood and atmosphere. It does a good job of establishing a slightly eerie feeling and it keeps that feeling running all the way through. Boris Karloff is a wonderful mummy and the rest of the cast is fine as well. It moves at a frisk pace and it never feels like it drags along. The ending is a bit too rushed, but I guess that with the limitations of that time, one can't expect too much. "
