Mummy’s Shroud, The (Hammer 1967, André Morell, John Phillips)



Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina

PETER CUSHING is the narrator explaining events in Egypt in 2000 BC, where a young pharaoh and his faithful retainer Prem (played by Hammer’s resident stuntman EDDIE POWELL) are entombed.

Fast forward to the ’20s and an expedition led by financier Sir Basil Walden (ANDRE MORRELL) excavates the two mummies but fanatical tomb guardian Hasmid (ROGER DELGADO) revives Prem and sets him off on a killing spree against all those who have desecrated the tomb and his master’s body.
