Stunning Blu Ray of Average Shocker,
This review is from: The Mummy's Shroud (Blu-ray + DVD)  (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.
