Sorry for the long hiatus of reviews. Before I start reviewing this Hammer classic, let me just say thanks for reuploading this movie onto iTunes. Now I can add this to my horror movie collection. Now onto the review....I know I may sound illogical for saying this but this Mummy film was actually superior to the Boris Karloff film. Now don't be mistaken....the Boris Karloff film was awesome but to me, this is the definitive Mummy film. It takes the premise of the original Mummy and mixes it with the classic sequels' plot....they even call this mummy Kharis. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys classic monster movies, so check it out......wait a minute! iTunes has The Curse of Frankenstein, Horror of Dracula, The Curse of the Werewolf, The Earth Dies Screaming, and now The Mummy. Let's hope that iTunes uploads The Abominable Snowman onto iTunes.
