‘An ancient evil has awoken’
The Mummy: Resurrection is a 2022 British horror drama film about an evil scheme to bring an Egyptian princess back to life. Also known as Resurrection of the Mummy
Written, produced and directed by Steve Lawson (Ripper’s Revenge; The Highwayman; The Fourth Musketeer; Jekyll and Hyde; Ripper Untold; Bram Stoker’s Van Helsing; Saltwater: The Battle for Ramree Island; The Haunting of Alcatraz; Pentagram; The Exorcism of Karen Walker; Hellriser; KillerSaurus; Nocturnal Activity).
The Creativ Studios production stars Carl Wharton, Chris Bell, Marcus Langford, Jas Steven Singh, Raven Lee, Sophie Marlowe, Melvyn Rawlinson, Dawn Butler, Rafe Bird, Natalie Rayner and Helen White.
When a cursed Egyptian sarcophagus falls into corrupt hands, the new owner becomes obsessed with the perfectly preserved mummified princess contained within and concocts a scheme to bring her back to life, but to do so requires human blood. Joining up with his medical student cousin, the duo undertake horrific experiments that inadvertently unleash pure evil…
There’s not much horror in Steve Lawson’s The Mummy: Resurrection. However, as with his other recent productions, it’s still fairly entertaining despite the obvious low budget (a CGI house is obviously fake).
Drama combines with dark comedy, most of which is supplied by Chris Bell’s character (he’s also in Lawson’s Ripper films). There are some points about 19th-century class conflict and double standards that are still relevant today with the offensively outdated British monarchy and pathetically privileged House of Lords.
Don’t go into this expecting to see much of a female mummy horror and you may enjoy the lightweight comedic shenanigans on show.
