REVENGE OF THE MUMMY (1973)
Pretty decent Paul Naschy horror movie. As the pharaoh (and horrible person) Amenhotep, Naschy tortures and kills women until he is poisoned by one of his underlings. He's buried alive and many years later, his tomb is disturbed by an archeologist (played by Euro star Jack Taylor). An ancestor (also Naschy) resurrects the mummy by killing more women. Then the mummy goes on his usual rampage as he tries to resurrect the soul of his favorite concubine. Euro favorite Helga Line plays the unfortunate vessel for the soul. There's some good gory effects and atmosphere and we get to see the mummy walk around in some sewers. This was the fourth (and last) Naschy film directed by Carlos Aured.
