Repeat My VHS Purge: The Mummy

Soon I hope to return to "My VHS Purge". The series' most recent filing was done on March 5th of last year. Over the next few days I will be revisiting the original "Purge" postings....

From January 15, 2017:

My VHS Purge: The Mummy

As part of a downsizing project eight years ago I purged most of my pre-recorded VHS tape collection. I've never been a big collector of movies -- my DVD library is fairly small -- but the fact is I had accumulated around 70 tapes: 

The Mummy (1932). A wonderfully creepy, but romantic, horror film that has long been a favourite of mine. I first saw it on late night television when I was in my teens. Before I parted with this particular VHS tape I watched it again and my affections were reaffirmed. The Mummy is more melancholy than I remembered it being but it still contains one of cinema's most chilling scenes.
