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.
