The Mummy (1959) trailer

I'm a bit surprised that I haven't posted this trailer before, since I do quite enjoy this movie a lot. Hammer did a great job in making a mummy that was actually scary. Most of the mummies from Universal movies, as fun as they are, are pretty slow and not that threatening. I figured if you got caught by one, you really should be dead and out of the gene pool.

Chris Lee as the Mummy is frightening, powerful and not slow at all. I just watched the Karloff mummy movie and while it's incredibly atmospheric, it's not the most exciting mummy movie out there. This one just might be.
