Description

The Mummy is one of the most recognisable figures in horror and is as established in the popular imagination as virtually any other monster, yet the Mummy on screen has until now remained a largely overlooked figure in critical analysis of the cinema.

In this compelling new study, Basil Glynn explores the history of the Mummy film, uncovering lost and half-forgotten movies along the way, revealing the cinematic Mummy to be an astonishingly diverse and protean figure with a myriad of on-screen incarnations.

In the course of investigating the enduring appeal of this most ‘Oriental’ of monsters, Glynn traces the Mummy’s development on screen from its roots in popular culture and silent cinema, through Universal Studios’ Mummy movies of the 1930s and 40s, to Hammer Horror’s re-imagining of the figure in the 1950s, and beyond.
