Trailers from Hell: Joe Dante on Unjustly Unheralded Horror Film 'The Black Room,' Starring Boris Karloff
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.
