Plot Summary:
"A group of Egyptologists discover the tomb of an evil queen. When the girl born to the wife of the expedition's leader at the moment of the discovery grows up it becomes evident she has inherited the beauty and the soul of the mummy. This strikes terror into almost all the expedition's members and for good reason, as they are one by one gruesomely murdered. Despite this, one of their number is intent on exploiting this frightening power."

Archaeologists desecrate the tomb of a High Priestess, stealing her prized jewel. One of them (Andrew Keir) gives it to his daughter (the absolutely stunning Valerie Leon), whom bears a striking resemblance to said High Priestess.

James Villiers plays a dastardly fellow archaeologist, the great Aubrey Morris ('A Clockwork Orange') is an eccentric doctor, with George Coulouris playing a madman.

A much better adaptation of Bram Stoker's 'Jewel of the Seven Stars', later badly done as 'The Awakening', this gets much mileage from Andrew Keir, a fine replacement for Peter Cushing. His sturdy performance as a generally decent but foolish man is one of Hammer filmdom's best performances. And Leon has lovely bazookas, too. Villiers' role is a bit underwritten, but this is a fun little B movie.

OVERALL SUMMARY
A forgotten Hammer film that was a troubled production, but barely shows it. Highly entertaining, with good production values, score composition and cinematography. Ripe for rediscovery.
