The Mummy's Tomb

The Mummy's Tomb ★★★

Obviously by this time the Mummy sequels were well into the B picture mode and this one cheats by using a fair amount of footage from the franchise's previous film the Mummy's Hand to pad out it's already slight running time, this is still chock full of Universal Picture's atmosphere, nice shadowy cinematography and the exotic Turhan Bey as the Mummy's new minder. The iconic mummy make up is still pretty creepy and I imagined it sent many of it's Saturday matinee audience ducking down in their seats
