New Featurette – The Pharaoh's Curse: Inside Blood From the Mummy's Tomb
Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb (Blu-ray+DVD) Studio Canal Ltd
Margaret (Valerie Leon) suffers a recurring nightmare in which she sees an ancient Egyptian queen, to whom she bears an uncanny resemblance, sealed up in a sarcophagus. The priests who entomb her first chop off her hand, before throwing it to jackals. They are then killed by a mysterious and powerful force that lacerates their throats.
Margaret’s father, Professor Fuchs (Andrew Keir), gives her a ring that he discovered in the tomb of Queen Tera 20 years before – the ring was on the queen’s disembodied hand. At the moment Fuchs discovered the Queen’s perfectly preserved, still bleeding, body, Margaret’s mother died giving birth to her. When a certain celestial conjunction is complete, and three key artefacts are assembled by Tera’s corpse, the evil sorceress will be reborn.
