A murderous mummy is on the loose and it's got the Hammer Films stamp on it, but this tame terror flick never gets the bandages off when it comes to thrills, chills, and gore. A British archeological team consisting of Sir Basil Walden (Andre Morrell), Paul Preston (David Buck), a photographer (Tim Barrett), and psychic linguist Claire (Maggie Kimberley) discover the tomb of Kah-to-Bey, a young heir to Pharaoh who died trying to escape a rebellion. The boy was buried by a loyal slave named Prem, whose mummy stands in a Cairo museum. The expedition is joined by Preston's wealthy, press-hungry father Stanley (John Phillips), who insists they return to Cairo with the body despite warnings of a curse by the tomb's guardian. The curse soon proves to be true as the slave's mummy is reanimated by the guardian and begins murdering each of the explorers who entered the tomb. While Stanley Preston unsuccessfully tries to save his own skin, Paul and Claire find themselves in a showdown with the seemingly indestructible mummy -- until they discover that the strange writing on the boy Pharaoh's shroud may be the secret to their survival.

Look's Fab On Blu-ray!

This is just a beautiful rendering of a classic Hammer Horror film on Blu-ray! The image is so lush & rich with fantastic color palette that brings this gem of the genre into HD.. Blacks are spot on and clarity is startling makings this film look more young than old. Only problem I had was a touch of DNR here and there you will notice the glossy faces in some scenes look waxy & bright with detail swiped digitally but it was so mild and so infrequent some won't even notice.

The Audio is crisp and noise free with dialog coming thru loud and clear with no problematic surging between action & diaglog scenes.. best audio possible without the need for a faux surround experience just a uncompressed mono natural soundtrack..all in all Studio Canal did an outstanding job on the audio front.

I highly recommend this Blu-ray package it is a quality release that will have old school horror fans rejoicing!

Hammers Mummy's Shroud Superb On Blu-ray

The Mummy's Shroud is a Hammer film that is not well known here in the United States and it is a treat for me personally to be making a blind buy on this, since I have never been let down, ever by Hammer film.

Video Quality - Over all the image is solid except for a few instances of DNR being applied, you will see these scenes right off with waxy faces that look shiny and smooth but this was used sparingly. At times you see a grain field then the other scenes look way too smooth but overall colors are deep and the image is bright with the correct aspect ratio of 1.66:1.

Average video bitrate: AVC as low as 28.4Mbps as high as 37Mbps

Audio - Lossless LPCM 1.0 is adequate and sounds the best you will get out of a mono source.. I am happy Studio Canal didn't try to pack a faux 5.1 synthetic surround track which would be a travesty in the eyes of connoisseurs of Hammer films..

LPCM Audio English 1152 kbps 1.0 / 48 kHz / 1152 kbps / 24-bit

Extras - Studio Canal include two new featurettes. The Beat Goes On: The Making of The Mummy's Shroud runs a full 22-minutes and gives some nice background on the production. There is also a brief bio-piece entitled Remembering David Buck where his career is reflected on for about 5-minutes by colleagues. There are a heap (15-minutes worth) of Hammer Trailers for The Mummy's Shroud and other productions and a slideshow Gallery.

To my U.S. countrymen buy from with confidence they are far superior to Zoverstocks and you will receive your product faster and in better condition with the best price..

I highly recommend - Brian Elm, Lilburn, Georgia, USA..
