The Mummy's Shroud: Special Edition

Hammer kick-starts the slasher genre with its supernatural shuffling slayer

Even director John 'The Plague of the Zombies' Gilling can find nothing new to do with the mummy genre in this third of Hammer's forays into the sub-genre. But, even if the film itself is a little bit of a yawn-fest, Hammer fans can at least take comfort in the fact that it certainly looks better than it has in decades thanks to this Blu-ray's beautifully restored AVC 1.66:1 1080p encode.

Sadly the extra features aren't quite as expansive as those on other releases in the range, but you still get a 22-min retrospective documentary, 6-min featurette about actor David Buck, a stills gallery and collection of trailers.
