Blood From the Mummy's Tomb (2001) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
There is probably only one reason to watch Hammer Horror’s, Blood From The Mummy’s Tomb, and that is to view the talents of Valerie Leon, who appears in a dual role as ancient Egyptian Queen Tera, and also as the daughter of an archeologist. The provocative placement of the jeweled necklace over the reclining Queen’s bosom, is quite titillating, though it is clearly impossible for that beautiful body to have been preserved from ancient times. Despite the title, there is no actual mummy, and while the film at times has a dark and dreary atmosphere, there is hardly anything that generates any terror. The story is pretty weak and silly, and devoid of any real physical threat. What remains is mainly supernatural tripe, some noisy winds, a statue of a black cat, and a string of victims with their throats torn open. While Ms. Leon is certainly wonderful eye candy, unfortunately there really is little else to recommend about the film.
Based on Bram Stoker’s novel, Jewel of the Seven Stars, the studio apparently did substantial publicity for the film, as evidenced by the still gallery, which is included as a bonus. Also included is a featurette, Curse of Blood From the Mummy’s Tomb, which discusses some of the backstory regarding the making of the film, and features clips of an interview with star Valerie Leon.
