Starring Boris Karloff, Cedric Hardwicke and Ralph Richardson, this landmark film is a key title in any horror film collection. An eminent, dying Egyptologist has purchased a precious stone stolen from an Egyptian tomb which, he believes, will appease the ancient gods after his death if they are buried together. When the stone is stolen from his tomb, he returns as a ghoul furious at the theft and hell-bent on wreaking revenge upon those responsible!

Classic horror starring Boris Karloff as a man who returns from the dead to seek revenge on those who have violated his grave. Eminent Egyptologist Professor Henry Morlant (Karloff), a believer in the death rituals of the civilisation he has dedicated his life to studying, instructs his servant to bury him with a precious stone that will bring him eternal life. However, when the stone is stolen from his body he rises from the tomb in a supernatural rage and sets out to gain revenge on the thieves.
