Lost in Translation?: Hammer's The Mummy

This Mummy comes to you from France by way of way of Egypt.

The original Hammer Films are Classics- no question.

How then do all of the Posters hold up?

Let's see what le French artistes can do with this?
The Egyptian version of the Kool-Aid Man sure was darker!

To be fair, this does represent a Scene in the Film.

Even so, what a curious bit to pick, no?
Why an Action Shot at all?

Oh and here's the *quite different* original I found online...
So, as you can see, the original is more *well, alot more* blue.  I think the lady not being a Smurf adds to the terror, no?
