The Mummy (1959)
Saturday 25th June 2022
Terrance Fisher's acclaimed, seminal horror The Mummy (1958) starring screen icon Peter Cushing (Star Wars, The Curse of Frankenstein, The Hound of The Baskervilles) has been unearthed from its tomb, and now the spellbinding horror cult classic is set for the Limited Edition treatment on Blu-ray, with a vast array of special features courtesy of Second Sight Films on 29th August 2022.
Cushing gives a haunting turn as an Egyptologist who discovers an ancient tomb and inadvertently unleashes the vengeful mummy of an Egyptian priest played by horror legend, Christopher Lee (Dracula, The Wicker Man, The Lord of The Rings).
In 1890s Egypt, a team of British archaeologists, John Banning (Cushing), his father Stephen Banning (Felix Aylmer), and Uncle Joseph Whemple (Raymond Huntley) discover the untouched tomb of Princess Ananka (Yvonne Furneaux). Inside the tomb, Peter discovers The Scroll of Life and, when he reads it aloud, he unknowingly brings the mummified body of the high priest Kharis (Lee) back to life...
Three years later and the group have returned to England, unawares of the nefarious consequences of their actions. A follower off the same Egyptian religion unleashes The Mummy to exact grisly revenge on the despoilers of the sacred past. As it edges nearer to exact its revenge, can anything save them from its relentlessly vicious and vengeful mission?
