It wasn't the first time that Heston has been miscast as a foreign national.
He was laughable as a Mexican in Orson Welles' "Touch of Evil," and he's just as ludicrous as a British archeologist bummed out by the fact that, after opening an Egyptian tomb, his baby daughter was possessed by the spirit of an evil Egyptian queen. To add insult to injury, he learns he has to kill his now teenage in a ceremonial ritual, or the girl will use her awesome occult powers to threaten all of mankind!
The film actually owes more to "The Omen" series than any of the early "Mummy" films from Universal, with plenty of people dying in gory, Omen-like freak accidents.
Dull, slow-paced and a tragic mistake for the great Charlton Heston, there's precious little to recommend here. Although it doesn't turn up on the tube much, it is still available on video.

I disagree, i think The Awakening is one of the most magical and charming horror movies ever made and its re-watchability factor is extremely high.

Thanks so much for this wonderful ariclte; this is the kind of thing that continues me though out the day. I’ve been searching around for your ariclte after I heard about them from a friend and was thrilled when I was able to find it after searching for some time. Being a avid blogger, I’m happy to see others taking initiative and contributing to the community. I just wanted to comment to show my appreciation for your post as it’s very encouraging, and many writers do not get the credit they deserve. I am sure I’ll be back and will spread the word to my friends.

Be more concerned about me using my cell phone once the main cabin door has closed than me innocently holding hands with another woman. After all, which one has the potential to cause more damage? Using a cell phone 34,000 feet in the air or a little lesbian hand-holding during a season that's supposed to be about love, kindness, and giving?. yves saint laurent handbags
