The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb is a British horror film from 1964 directed by Michael Carreras. It is the fourth movie in a series of Hammer Horror films and is a sequel to The Mummy (1959). The film stars Terence Morgan as Adam Beauchamp, Ronald Howard as John Bray, Fred Clark as Alexander King, and Jeanne Roland as Annette Dubois. The film begins with an archeological expedition led by Bray, who is searching for the tomb of Egyptian princess Ananka. However, things take a dark turn when they discover the mummy of Ra-Antef, a high priest who was buried alive with the princess as punishment for their forbidden love. The team decides to take the mummy with them to London for an exhibition, despite warnings of a curse.

As the expedition arrives in London, strange events start to occur. Several members of the team are attacked by a mysterious assailant. King, the showman funding the exhibition, becomes increasingly agitated and paranoid. Meanwhile, Beauchamp becomes infatuated with Dubois, a young dancer whom King has brought along for the exhibition.

As tensions rise and the curse seems to become increasingly real, the team begins to unravel the mystery surrounding the tomb. They discover that Ra-Antef was originally buried with a valuable ruby, which King has stolen, and that the mummy's curse may be revenge for this theft.

As the team investigates, they realize that the mummy has been resurrected and is on a killing spree, targeting those who have wronged him. They race against time to stop the mummy before it can cause any more harm.

The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb features typical Hammer Horror elements, such as an iconic monster, supernatural events, and gore. However, it also explores themes of greed, obsession, and forbidden love. The performances of the main cast members are strong and bring depth to the characters.

The film has been criticized for struggling to build suspense and relying too heavily on jump scares. The climax of the film is also controversial, with some viewers finding it unsatisfying.

Overall, The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb is a solid entry in the Hammer Horror series. It offers entertaining thrills and performances while exploring themes that elevate the story beyond a typical monster flick.
