Although it has a different storytelling, THE MUMMY is as frightening as HORROR OF DRACULA. After played as Count Dracula, now Christopher Lee is back as Kharis or The Mummy himself. Honestly, I prefer this movie than the 1932's version. Lee's portrayal of The Mummy is more menacing and cruel, but less frightening than Boris Karloff did. Peter Cushing is good. Gee, Yvonne Furneaux is f*cking beautiful in this movie!
I could watch Peter Cushing in anything but archaeologist John Banning is not as much fun as Victor Frankenstein or Abraham Van Helsing. I find this the weakest of those initial Hammer horrors, although Christopher Lee is as fearsome a monster as ever here. Very picturesque throughout and worth watching for the final swamp showdown!
