Doesn't follow the typical formula, and that makes it more interesting, yet the pacing is a little slow in parts and the plot gets somewhat tangled. I think I would've liked a little more shambling bandage-clad Mummy in this one.

Surprisingly high image quality of the BluRay. For a 1932 horror film, this has aged rather well. See it for Karloff's eyes and his mummified make-up in the beginning.

1932's The Mummy stars Boris Karloff in the title role, which he plays as an ancient wizard seeking immortality. None of the shambling bandage zombie I was sort of expecting. In short, the "mother of all mummy movies" defies expectations by turning itself into a supernatural thriller at the earliest convenience, and not hiding its star under a costume. Between the atmosphere established in the film, the very interesting make-up, and the performance they support, Karloff is magnetic. Unfortunately, no one else comes close, up to and including Zita Johann as his would-be queen. All in all, an exotic Universal Monster film that doesn't quite fit the budding franchise's usual structure. No freight train, but its pace is adequate for its purposes.

In many ways it's just a remix of Universal’s Dracula, but overall I actually preferred this. Karloff is superb as the antagonist; Zita Johann (and her array of skimpy outfits) makes for an appealing (and, perhaps in spite of said clothing, competent) female lead; and there’s some really atmospheric direction from Karl Freund.

It's all right, I guess...Karloff is good. Quite dull in spots. This should have been one of those 30s movies that was only about 45 minutes long, then it probably would have been better.

BURIED ALIVE for 3700 years! (except he'd be dead after a couple of days).
The Amazing... Incredulous... Unbelievable... story of... the nameless HORROR! (except he has got a name).
