|10.31.06||DVD|| one more... another Karloff treat. This time he plays the warden of an Eighteenth-century London looney bin, and not some socially-consciouss Girl, Interrupted looney bin either... a hardcore truth-doesn't-matter 40s version of olden-times London shithouse rat boobie hatch complete with cages, whips & chains, and google-eyed crazies. Animals, without souls... treated for amusement by others. Harsh. Halloween-awesome though. Karloff plays nice to the aristocrats but takes out every cruel whim on his locked-up lunatics.|
After Cat People, I Walked With A Zombie, and The Body Snatcher, I think this is my favorite movie of this box set, which is cool because I saved it for last. Not a particularly rambunctious Halloween this year but I think I watched some suitable movies given my mood and energy levels... only 365 days till next Halloween!
