    A classic, of course, put pace is slow, and creaks a bit. For my money, the Hammer films starting with 'The Mummy' assemble all the elements of the story in a more vivid, frightening manner.

  • Classic Horror(1932)

    • 9/30/12

    Karl Freund competently directs an atmospheric and moody telling of the rise of the "Mummy" starring iconic actor Boris Karloff as Imhotep/Ardeth Bey. Basically a ficitonalised account of the Howard Carter expedtion of 1922. Excellent make-up and implied horror are highlights as well as the Performance of the lead stars. Look for Noble Johnson as the "Nubian." It really doesn't get much better than this except maybe for a longer version. 5 stars out of 5. Karl Freund later went on as principal cinemaphotographer for the "I Love Lucy" show after many major motion pictures.

    The beginning of this film presents the horrific scene of a man driven insane by the sight of a resurrected 3000 year old corpse. Victor Frankenstein reacted similarly when he realized he had breathed life into a dead body. Movies of this era portrayed accurately I think the human reactions most people would have upon confronting a devastating assault on their rational minds. Not until The Exorcist came along was it done as convincingly.

    After his success in 'Frankenstien,' Karloff exchanges the bolts for bandages in this addition of 'Universal Monsters.' The make- up and atmosphere add an eerie sense in the beginning but fades near the end. Because of the awkward storytelling and dull scares, I would prefer the 1999 updated version. A nice horror film with creepy staging. I give it a 2.5/5.

  • One of Karloff's Best

    Boris Karloff turns in one of his best creepy performances as the Mummy Imhotep and his alias, Ardath Bey. He delivers his lines in such a way it makes me believe he really is a living mummy. Zita Johann turns in an excellent performance as the reincarnated princess and long lost love of the Mummy. An excellent Universal Monster movie of the golden age of horror.

    This is STILL my favorite all time scarey movie! It still gives me shivers and chills even at this late date-i was shocked when first viewing as a child and i still will not watch this in a darkened room alone! Karloff is AMAZING and the light/shadow add to the "atmostphere" and creepiness. Who would have thought, in this day and age with violence/blood/gore etc. in film that this would still upset me-hands down the best in HORROR!

    The best piece of artwork in a story ever told! Watch and allow yourself to drift into history and romance.

  • One of the best movies from this era

    This is Universal Studio at its best in the 30's.Karloff is fantastic as ImHoTep and the shadow and light is perfect.Tame by todays standards but still very good.A classic.
