9.5/10. The best interpretation of The Mummy ever told. Sir Christopher Lee plays a better mummy than Boris Karloff I felt. He plays the mummy in a sympathetic way whose only crime was love for a princess, forbidden by ancient Egyptian society. Peter Cushing's also brilliant as the hero trying to foil the mummy and the real villain who controls him for murderous purposes. Hammer Studios did a better job with The Mummy than Universal Studios did 20 years earlier. One great scene is the mummy sinking into a bog and perhaps reuniting with his love in the afterlife.


Plot hole: Unless I'm missing something when Stephen Banning reads from The Scroll of Life, not only should Kharis have come back to life but so should Princess Ananka since her sarcophagus was open.
