Horror Classics 04: The Ape / British Intelligence 1999 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This double-feature disc features Boris Karloff in a pair of performances that will certainly please fans and also enlighten those cineastes who would only know the talented british-born Hollywood actor from his career-making role as the Frankenstein Monster. The Ape, a Monogram low-budget smash hit in 1940, showcases Karloff as a mad doctor donning the pelt of slain circus apes as he kills his neighbors for their spinal fluid in hopes of creating a polio-vaccine. Then, in the popular 1940 espionage potboiler British Intelligence—Boris Karloff plays Valdar, a butler working for a British cabinet minister during WW1, and who may just be a spy. He tangles with alluring secret agent Lindsay—who may just be a double agent. Remake of “Three Faces East”.
