Monsters Mash #8 Universal Cycle: The Mummy

10 years, 2 months 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

While not quite in the same league as the Frankenstein films and Dracula, having a few scenes that drag and one or two of the dialogue-heavy scenes feeling repetitive, The Mummy is still creepy and very effective even now. The sets are still wonderfully extravagant as are the costumes and the cinematography is stunning. James Dietrich's score is very haunting, the script in general is poetic and t... 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.

“While not quite in the same league as the Frankenstein films and Dracula, having a few scenes that drag and one or two of the dialogue-heavy scenes feeling repetitive, The Mummy is still creepy and very effective even now. The sets are still wonderfully extravagant as are the costumes and the cinematography is stunning. James Dietrich's score is very haunting, the script in general is poetic and the story complete with a superb beginning and ending and of one where Imhotep permits his love to relive her past is interesting. The acting is fine, Edward Van Sloan gives one of his better performances here, while Zita Johann is beautiful and in a unique and stunning way. Stealing the film, in a very powerful and magnetic performance is Boris Karloff. All in all, a very good film, not quite a ma” read more

"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. "
