The Mummy's Hand 1940 5 out of 10

The Mummy's Hand  1940  5 out of 10...

This was your typical Mummy movie.  The old school Mummy movies are pretty much all the  same.  A clue leads some treasure hunters  to a lost tomb....A curse is unleashed...the locals run and hide and the those that opened the tomb are menaced by a slow moving and not scary at all monster in bandages.   Until the big budget remake with Brendan Frasier  Mummies just were never scary. They are slow lumbering creatures that sneak up on you out of the dark and either choke you or hammer you with their Mummy wrapped hand until you are dead.   They can easily be outrun and their is generally only one of them.     Mummy movies are like a zombie movie with only one Zombie.......kinda dull.   The best Mummy movies or shows are when they are poking fun at them like in Scooby Doo.  "Coin....coin...coin".
