Boris Karloff solidifies his status as one of the greatest horror stars in film history with his terrifying yet surprisingly poignant performance as high priest Imhotep, a 3,700 year old mummy who wreaks havoc upon the members of the British field exposition that disturbed his tomb. Featuring groundbreaking innovations in make-up that are used to chilling effect, THE MUMMY earns its place in the canon of classic horror cinema.
The legendary Boris Karloff stars as the mummy Im-Ho-Tep, a high priest who is revived by British archaeologists 3,700 years after being embalmed alive for trying to save the woman he loved.
Cast: Boris Karloff, Bramwell Fletcher, Zita Johann, Edward Van Sloan, David Manners
Classic film, and Karloff is wonderful.
❤️❤️ Absolutely fantastic ancient Hollywood!
This was my favourite as a child. Karloff was so intense and that voice, I have been a horror since.
Karloff is great, as always, but this movie doesn't capture me the way other Universal films do.
Not my favorite of the Universal cycle. Basically Dracula in Egypt, but with less interesting accents.
