Dawn Of The "fun" Mummy
on 23 April 2015
After a damned Egyptian tomb is opened by some treasure hunters with the aid of a group of US models, a vengeful mummy rises and hoards of others kill everyone in their path.
A wonderfully bad mummy gore flick. Featuring some hilariously bad acting, sets which look like they were built from chipboard, golden props made out of wood, an almost laughable story and a frankly tedious opening half, will lead you to believe that this is an absolutely awful film, however this is so much better than you'd ever expect. The Shuki Levy soundtrack particularly the closing theme is great, the genuine Egyptian locals are a real bonus (even adding dare I say it some believability to proceedings) & even some of the gore effects aren't that bad, but it's the last 30mins that the film bursts into life, the pace & gore gets ramped up becoming quite exciting at times, with a very good climax in the town centre.
A film like this low budget, no brainer really has no right to be as much fun as it becomes in the last 3rd, yes the first 50mins are nothing but a (very) long set up for the finale, but the pay off is great and a lot of over the top fun can be had (some scenes are genuinely funny) just don't go into this looking for a serious mummy movie. This was another film that was placed on the section 3 list, the DPP clearly not seeing any fun in this offering.
