from the Mummy's Tomb (1971)
from the Mummy's Tomb (1971) is from the Hammer horror/mystery/sci-fi
|It is the story of a curse
by an Egyptian Goddess placed on a group of scientists that discovered
her tomb. It is of special interest to one of the scientists, as his
daughter was born at the exact moment they discovered and pronounced
the Goddess's name, Tera, and is destined to become her reincarnation.
The object is to gather sacred objects (each member of the expedition
has one), and collect them in the same room as the sarcophagus. At
this point, something wondrous is to happen, but everyone disagrees as
to what. The plot is every bit as lame as it sounds, even though it is
based on Jewel of the Seven Stars by Bram Stocker.
|Valerie Leon plays the
daughter and the Goddess, and is shown jumping out of bed with
her boyfriend and getting dressed. Her breasts are seen in
poor light, but there is a long look at her buns
||The set decoration and photography are
rather nice, as is the DVD transfer, but this is a solid genre film,
and nothing more.
the original director died during the filming, but a replacement was
soon found, and the show went on.

like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics - or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the

open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only

inept as well.
