THE CURSE OF THE MUMMY'S TOMB / Hammer Film Productions - 1964

Welp, here's our last post before the start of Halloween Countdown 2013. We gots a 'Curse' movie to cross off our 'to do' list, it's all about a group of greedy treasure seekers who uncover another Egyptian mummy that gets put on public display by a sleazy American showman, but then it mysteriously disappears. That's when the fun begins...

Eegah!! sent over a fun lil' soundclip from this flick, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the Atomic Tana Tea Maker, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... THE CURSE OF THE MUMMY'S TOMB!

Here's our little group of treasure seekers plotting their next move. Fred Clark plays the American showman bent on displaying their newly found mummy for monetary gain in England. Fred was the big lug you loved to hate back in the fifties and sixties, you can also see him in DR. GOLDFOOT AND THE BIKINI MACHINE.

In a flashback, we get to see the murderous event that inspired the creation of this panel.

The inscription on this amulet has a dire warning to all infidels.

When the sarcophagus is opened at the premiere, guess what?.. No freakin' mummy!!

Instead, mummy's boy is out takin' care of business by crushing the skulls of his enemies. In the second still, he has just smashed a heavy vase like ten times on the head of one of the men who opened his tomb. Love that profile!

After being caught in a trap set by the police, he rips the ropes off, then presses on to take care of his next victim by stepping on the poor guy's koph!

At the end, the mummy turns on his master and eventually caves the whole place down on himself!.. Tune in on Wednesday when Eegah!! unveils our first Halloweenie post for Halloween Countdown 2013!!

Hi Ex - It's actually an Egyptian chair she's sitting on, but, it kinda looks like a lil' bed!

Even though he doesn't have as interesting a part this time, it's nice that it has George Pastell from THE MUMMY.
And Fred Clark is entertaining in anything.
