Inner Sanctum Mysteries 01/02/21

Mill Creek Entertainment

Charlie Largent rings in the New Year with Universal’s sextette of ‘Inner Sanctum’ chillers, all starring Lon Chaney Jr. in interesting character roles: Calling Dr. Death, Weird Woman, Dead Man’s Eyes, The Frozen Ghost, Strange Confession and Pillow of Death. The reputation of these spook shows has been on the rise, and I’m curious — I can remember not watching a single one of them when they showed up on weekend TV horror/sci-fi movie slots in the 1960s!  I’ll be reading with interest — I think these are split between creepy murder stories and quasi-supernatural tales, and I know that one of them is based on the same story from which Burn, Witch, Burn was derived. On Blu-ray from Mill Creek Entertainment.
