Dawn of the Mummy (2003) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
I usually refrain from leaving an all-out pan of a review, BUT, consider this a warning- I strongly suggest curious horror fans refrain from spending hard-earned money on a dvd of this dreadful bomb. I consider myself pretty open-minded when it comes to low-budget horror films. Often, the limited budget can lend a film a certain gritty, unrehearsed, documentary style, which can work in its favor and help create a believable atmosphere. Sadly, that is nowhere near the case with DAWN OF THE MUMMY. The dialogue is universally cringe-inducing, the acting is abyssmal, the direction and editing is frustratingly sloppy and inept, and the gore is poorly executed or so badly-lit it can’t be made out. Bad over-acting abounds, and characters tend to stand still and wait for staged attacks to happen. I was truly disappointed, as I’d read a few reviews referring to this film as “underappreciated”. I suggest you avoid it and check out something else instead. Hilariously, the credits on my copy state that the soundtrack is available! I shudder to think funds were spend pressing THAT sorry collection of “music”.
