external linkWhile a bit heavy in spiritual aspects at times this is a well-directed time with one slick evil mummy in Talos. Also it's good to see a mummy that's vicious, quick and doesn't shamble instead of a shuffling slow-poke. ... Get over the bland video box and you'll get this hidden little gem. 3/4
