Karloff & Lugosi Horror Classics 2009 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
I agree with the other reviewers about “The Walking Dead,” which is an excellent tale.
I have just about worn out my VHS copy, which was taped from a local TV station airing many years ago, so I’m very glad to see that it is finally being released on DVD. Let’s hope that the DVD version has been transferred from a good 35mm print, and that some care has been taken in the transfer.
I’ve never seen the other three films and so can’t comment on them. But I agree that the set will be worth the price just for “The Walking Dead” alone.
BTW, this film was partially remade in 1939 as “The Man They Could Not Hang,” also starring Karloff, with the same basic plot (wrongfully convicted man is executed and returns to avenge his death). But “The Walking Dead” is spookier, less preachy and in my opinion, the better of the two.
