Following Frankenstein and Dracula, Terence Fisher exhumed another vintage monster for Hammer, albeit in a film where everyone risks being upstaged by a swamp.
As before, Peter Cushing gets the talky role (as the archaeologist hero) while Christopher Lee crashes about the place not saying much (flashbacks to ancient times aside).
Any scene based around said swamp is a winner (Lee’s gloopy arrival thrills); shame that the ‘Egypt’ set looks like it might’ve ended up on ’70s sitcom It Ain’t Half Hot Mum.
