THE BLACK CAT (1934)
1934, Universal, 65 min, USA, Dir: Edgar Ulmer

Cat-fearing Bela Lugosi pursues devil-worshipping Boris Karloff through his crazed, Bauhaus-on-acid mansion, sitting atop the bodies of thousands of WW I vets.


THE MUMMY (1932)
1932, Universal, 73 min, USA, Dir: Karl Freund

Boris Karloff gives one of his finest performances as the 3,000-year-old Egyptian who returns from the dead to reclaim reincarnated love Zita Johann, in cinematographer-turned-director Karl Freund’s marvelously atmospheric chiller - easily the best of many mummy films to come.
