Boris Karloff's legendary performance as The Mummy has become a landmark in the annals of screen history. When Egyptian mummy Im-Ho-Tep is accidentally revived after 3,700 years, it is revealed in a flashback that he was a high priest, embalmed alive for trying to revive his true love after she had been sacrificed. Alive again, he sets out on an obsessive - and deadly - quest to find his lost love. The Mummy remains a masterpiece not only of the genre, but of all time.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Relying more on mood and atmosphere than the thrills typical of modern horror fare, Universal's The Mummy sets a masterful template for mummy-themed films to follow.
This vintage classic is more funny than scary.
