The boogie man will get you: "Karloff stars in this delicious spoof about a scientist who has perfected a device to turn ordinary men into supermen. Only problem: it doesn't work-- and he's got a cellarful of corpses!"--Container.
Before I hang: "In the third of his 'mad doctor' chillers, Karloff is Dr. Garth, a scientist who has perfected a serum to prevent aging and death-- which does not come in handy when he's wrongfully arrested for murder and sentenced to life imprisonment! To make matters worse, it also turns him into an unwilling killer!"--Container.
The man they could not hang: "In the first of his celebrated 'mad doctor' series, Karloff is Dr. Savaard, a scientist who has perfected a device to revive the dead, which comes in handy when he's wrongfully arrested for murder and hanged. Resuscitated by his loyal assistant, he now heads out to seek vengeance on those who condemned him and his remarkable discovery."--Container.
The black room: "In a tiny European nation, a baron has fathered twin sons--Anton and Gregor--but a local legend has it that one will someday kill the other, so Anton is sent into exile while Gregor remains. Decades later, Gregor has become a tyrant; sensing revolution in the air, he summons Anton back to take over. But is that really what he has in mind?"--Container.
