Format: DVD
The Mummy's Shroud is directed by John Gilling who also co-adapts the screenplay with Anthony Hinds. It stars André Morell, John Phillips, David Buck, Elizabeth Sellars, Maggie Kimberly and Michael Ripper. Music is by Don Banks and cinematography by Arthur Grant.

Mezzera, Egypt, 1920, and an expedition to find the tomb of Pharaoh Kah- to-Bey gets more than they bargained for when they unearth a shroud adorned with the ancient writings of life and death...

The third instalment of Hammer Films forays into Mumified based Egyptology, The Mummy's Shroud follows the standard formula but never the less entertains in undemanding fashion. Released as the support feature to Frankenstein Created Woman (not Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed as listed in some quarters since that was two years later), it's nicely photographed, stoically performed by the cast (especially by Hammer hero Ripper who gets a meaty role) and is pacey enough to uphold the interest. The violence aspects are strongly constructed, but kept mostly in suggestive terms as per visual enticements, and how nice to see the lead ladies here be more than token cleavage.

This was the last Hammer feature to be made at Bray Studios, so it has some poignant significance in the history of Hammer Films. It's not a great send off for Bray, but it's unmistakably one of those Hammer Horror films that fans of the studio's output can easily spend the evening with and not feel it has been time wasted. 6.5/10

Format: DVD
Here we have a creepy double dose of walking dead movies that were made in the 1960s by Hammer Studios. Here's the lowdown on each film:

THE MUMMY'S SHROUD (1966)
Directed by John Gilling
Starring John Phillips, André Morell, David Buck, Elizabeth Sellars, Michael Ripper, Tim Barrett, Richard Warner, Maggie Kimberley, Catherine Lacey, Roger Delgado, Eddie Powell, Dickie Owen, Bruno Barnabe, Toni Gilpin, Toolsie Persaud, Andreas Maladrinos

In Egypt in 1920 a group of British archaeologists discovers the tomb of a Pharoah called Ka-to-Bey. Ignoring all the usual warnings, the archaeologists excavate the tomb and eventually put the artefacts on display, including a mummy and its shroud that bears an ancient coded inscription.

It turns out that if the inscription is decyphered it has the power to bring the mummy back to life and, this being a Hammer Horror movie, that's exactly what happens. The grumpy old mummy then goes on a murder spree and starts killing people associated with the expedition.

This is probably the least well-known of all of Hammer's mummy movies (they made four in total) and it holds some significance in the history of Hammer as it was their last film to be produced at Bray Studios in Berkshire. This film is competently directed by John Gilling and features a fine cast of well-known character actors including Hammer-regulars André Morell and Michael Ripper. The cast also features Maggie Kimberley, who was also in Michael Reeves' "Witchfinder General", and Roger Delgado, who was best-known for playing The Master in "Doctor Who" in the early 1970s. The mummy was played by Hammer stuntman Eddie Powell, who doubled for Christopher Lee in many films.

FILM REVIEW:
The keeper of a pharaoh's tomb awakes an ancient mummy to exact revenge on those who dared desecrating the resting place he guarded.

There's nothing really new in this film. Once you have seen a Hammer/Universal Mummy movie seems you have seen them all.
The film feels a bit too long. Maybe through the lack of resources. The action takes place in a very limited handful of sets, namely the Hotel, the Site of the tomb, the museum and an allegedly downtown street of Mezzera, Egypt. Despite this and some other issues with the plot, some actors deliver very good performances - especially Michael Ripper, and the film do contain some nice production values.
Furthermore, the excellent picture quality on the Blu-ray disc makes this an edition well worth to own, in my opinion.

Format: Blu-ray
The Mummy's Shroud, a rather talky, but beautifully acted little feature was the last film Hammer made at Bray Studios.

It was based on an original story by Anthony Hinds and then director John Gilling and is generally thought of being his least successful film. That said, unoriginal though the story line is it was directed - on limited budget - with some visual flair and the result should please both horror fans and Hammer enthusiasts.

The acting is excellent, from the leads as well as: John Phillips; Elizabeth Sellers; Catherine Lacey; Michael Ripper and Roger Delgado.

The blu ray transfer is a triumph of spotless and crisp high definition transfer almost as good as The Devil Rides Out and Rasputin the Mad Monk. There are good levels of grain too so the filmic feel is not destroyed by DNR.

Extras include:
The Beat Goes On: The Making of The Mummy's Shroud (22:00)
.
Remembering David Buck (5:37)
This moving tribute to the talented actor and husband of
Madeline Smith, will be of great interest to genre fans.

Stills gallery (6:09)
An impressive selection of posters, ad art, colour lobby cards, etc etc
Plus an extensive selection of
Hammer trailers (14:46)
