This spine-chilling movie, shot in the German expressionistic manner, was the first of eight directed by one of the great cinematographers of cinema history. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Master photographer Karl Freund directs without shock tactics -- apart from the burying alive scene -- but with images of death and decay worthy of Edgar Allan Poe. Full Review

Basically the Dracula story set in Egypt. Karloff plays a very wrinkly mummy-come-to-life who like Dracula casts his spell on a beautiful woman, who may be the reincarnation of a long-dead Egyptian princess. Classic horror. Full Review

Rating: 8/10 -- A Dracula rip-off that is, in fact, considerably better than Dracula in almost every regard. Full Review

Product Description:

Archaeologists digging in Egypt uncover the 3000-year-old mummy of Im-ho-tep, a prince who was buried alive, with a curse placed on anyone who opens his tomb. The disturbance brings restores life to the mummy, who escapes and assumes the persona of Ardeth Bey (Boris Karloff), a mysterious Egyptian whose one goal is to reincarnate his lover of 3000 years ago. When he believes he sees a shadow of his lost love in lovely young Helen Grosvenor (Zita Johann), only her would-be suitor, Frank Whemple (David Manners), and resourceful Dr. Muller (Edward Van Sloan) can save her from body from being consumed by the soul of a long-dead woman. Thanks to director Karl Freund and an understated performance by horror legend Boris Karloff, THE MUMMY is a dreamlike masterpiece.

Plot Synopsis:

Horror classic starring Boris Karloff as the mummy who rises from the dead in 1921, many centuries after his burial in Egypt. The lonely creature, however, would like to be reunited with his lady love -- who was also buried centuries ago...
