THE AWAKENING (1980 U.K.) D: MIKE NEWELL W: CHRIS BRYANT/CLIVE EXTON/ALLAN SCOTT P: ROBERT H. SOLO
In one of the most boring Egyptian curse movies, Charlton Heston is an archeologist who opens a tomb and a long dead queen possesses his newly born child. Eighteen years later she kills. Really slow and long with no excitement. Newell cannot direct horror. It`s based on Bram Stoker`s story The Jewel Of The 7 Stars, which had already been filmed as Hamer`s BLOOD FROM THE MUMMY`S TOMB (and was later adapted for LEGEND OF THE MUMMY). With Susannah York and Miriam Margoyles. Monte Hellman was an uncredited Additional Editor.
