Moria says it's
the dreariest of them all. The plot is the most routine and least standout of the series. Sadly, the most exciting the film ever gets is during the footage that has been taken direct from The Mummy’s Hand.1000 Misspent Hours closes by praising the lack of comic relief and opens by saying it's
probably the strongest of the Universal mummy movies. Like its immediate predecessor, it features a blazingly fast pace and a short running time, but its more serious tone, better monster makeup, and higher quotient of mummy action make it far superiorWeird Wild Realm liked The Mummy's Hand better. The New York Times was not impressed when it was released in 1942.
