In 1921 a field expedition in Egypt discovers the mummy of ancient Egyptian prince Im-Ho-Tep, who was condemned and buried alive for sacrilege. Also found in the tomb is the Scroll of Thoth, which can bring the dead back to life. One night a young member of the expedition reads the Scroll out loud, and then goes insane, realizing that he has brought Im-Ho-Tep back to life. Ten years later, disguised as a modern Egyptian, the mummy attempts to reunite with his lost love, an ancient princess who has been reincarnated into a beautiful young woman. Starring Boris Karloff as Imhotep.
“A sombre and atmospheric depiction of eternal passion and occult reincarnation.” – Geoff Andrew, TIME OUT
“Master photographer Karl Freund directs without shock tactics — apart from the burying alive scene — but with images of death and decay worthy of Edgar Allan Poe.” – Tom Hutchinson, RADIO TIMES
“Karloff delivers perhaps his finest acting performance in The Mummy, creating a sympathetic and distinctively human character….” -Sarah Boslaugh, Playback:stl
