Shock Theater with Joe Dante concludes at Trailers from Hell, with director and TFH creator Dante introducing 1935’s “The Black Room,” starring Boris Karloff.
A Karloff tour-de-force casts him as twin brothers
under the thrall of a grim family curse. One of the most unjustly unheralded
Golden Age horror films, it’s seldom seen today but deserves a lot more
recognition than it’s gotten since it disappeared from the tv airwaves in the
mid -70s. This cut-down reissue trailer hardly does it justice.
