Description by OLDIES.com:

In Hammer Studios' vivid 1959 Technicolor reincarnation of The Mummy, screen horror icon Christopher Lee wraps on the moldy gauze bandages and emerges as the tormented Kharis, and avenger stalking the hills and bogs of Victorian England to track down archaeologist John Banning (Peter Cushing) and other desecrators of his beloved Princess Ananka's Egyptian tomb.

"Lee looks tremendous, smashing his way through doorways and erupting from green, dreamlike quagmires in really awe-inspiring fashion" (David Pirie, Time Out Film Guide). Awe-inspiring, too, was the box-office success of this third hammer reinvigoration - after The Curse of Frankenstein and Horror of Dracula - of a classic screen monster.

Product Description:

Foolish British archeologists disturb the tomb of the mummy, reawakening the powerful and deadly creature. A devotee to the ancient Egyptian gods brings the mummy to England after the archeologists, where he proceeds to wreak divine vengeance on the men, one after another. But when the mummy sees a woman who may be the reincarnation of his long-lost princesses, the plan may have to change. A remake of the original 1932 classic from Britain's Hammer studios.

Plot Synopsis:

Remake of the 1932 horror classic. A resurrected, mummified creature creates havoc for three archaeologists who have unearthed the coffin of a long-buried Egyptian princess.
