Why bother paying a week long tribute to Blood From The Mummy's Tomb, one of Hammer Horror's most maligned films from the seventies? Perhaps the first reason that comes to mind is because I can, but that really doesn't get it. Perhaps it has something more to do with what Kim Newman said in his spot on review of the film in issue 79 of Video Watchdog about how "few Hammer films are so consistent in their imagery". That's a truly perceptive thing to say about this very odd, troubling and finally hypnotic film from 1971. So, join me if you will starting later today at Harry Moseby Confidential to pay tribute to this rather baffling but actually quite unforgettable production from Britain's most legendary studio.
