BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN
1935, Universal, 75 min, USA, Dir: James Whale

"Warning! The Monster Demands a Mate!" Widely considered the high point of the 1930s Universal horror cycle, BRIDE is a brilliant blend of black humor and Gothic style. Boris Karloff reprises his greatest role as the Monster, with Colin Clive as his reluctant "father," the hilariously creepy Ernest Thesiger as Dr. Pretorius and Elsa Lanchester as the screaming-mimi Bride.


FRANKENSTEIN
1931, Universal, 70 min, USA, Dir: James Whale

"A Monster Science Created – But Could Not Destroy!" Boris Karloff had appeared in more than 75 films before FRANKENSTEIN turned him almost overnight into a screen legend. His performance here - anguished, eloquent, wordless - remains one of the most hauntingly powerful in all cinema. With Colin Clive, Edward Van Sloan, Dwight Frye.


PRINCE OF DARKNESS
1987, Universal, 102 min, USA, Dir: John Carpenter

When a group of physics graduate students are contacted by a priest to investigate a vat seemingly abandoned in the basement of a dilapidated Los Angeles church, they have little idea of the true evil inhabiting the vat's phosphorescent green liquid. As the Satan-possessed liquid comes to life and wreaks lethal havoc, the students - the surviving ones, that is - must confront and somehow surmount the work of the Devil himself. With Donald Pleasance, Lisa Blount, Jameson Parker and Alice Cooper.
