Thrillers from the Vault: 8 Films (part 1) 02/28/23

Mill Creek

Charlie Largent tackles the first half of Mill Creek’s 8 title ‘Thriller’ set, which deals out 6 Karloffs, one Lugosi and a wild card Sci-Fi classic from the well-tended Columbia Pictures vault. For this ‘part 1’ review, we get the lowdown on four Karloff madman pix — a study in character diversification if there ever was one. Boris plays twins in The Black Room, and mad doctors that those unenlightened authorities keep trying to execute in The Man They Could Not Hang, The Man with Nine Lives, and Before I Hang. I hear the set has some good extras, too. Creeping your way on Blu-ray from Mill Creek.
