* arn’t explored very deeply. It really makes me appreciate the universal monster movies.

Wowsers. Want to know what directly inspired the films CLUE, HAUNTED HONEYMOON, and THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW? This is a very queer good time, flying right under the radar in the 1930s. At almost 100 years old, this one is still excellent.

Of course I love the black and white, it's extremely under-valued, it immediately puts you in the horror mood!!! I LOVE BORIS!! He was born for this. The story itself is a little lacking. I've seen it 3X in my lifetime just for Boris, but I do wish they had scripted it with a little more story detail/substance.
