Icons of Horror - Boris Karloff The Boogie Man Will Get You/The Black Room/The Man They Could Not Hang/Before I Hang 2006 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Boris Karloff was to the Horror Movie what Fred Astaire was to the Musical: the epitome of class and style. No matter how grisly the circumstances, he’d rise above them with talent, poise and even charm. And here, for the first time on DVD, are four of his finest chillers from his peak years in the 1930s and 1940s, all demonstrating his amazing range. In The Black Room, he plays twin brothers—one good, one evil, naturally— in a small country where beautiful women seem to turn up missing. The Man They Could Not Hang and Before I Hang present him in his classic “Mad Doctor” persona as forward-thinking scientists who run afoul of the law and become crazed killers. And in The Boogie Man Will Get You, he sends up that image in a delightful farce that also stars Peter Lorre (M) and Larry Parks (The Jolson Story). It’s a collection all fervent classic-horror fans have been eagerly waiting for!
