The Black Cat Review

14 years, 6 months ago at Jun 5 3:04

Those looking for an accurate adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's short story should look elsewhere. About the only thing this film has in common with Poe's story is the fact that there is a black cat in the movie, and Lugosi's character is deathly afraid of black cats. If on the other hand you're looking for some great moments in classic horror, then you should definitely check out THE BLACK CAT. It ... read more

"17.10. Bela Lugosin ja Boris Karloffin tähdittämässä kauhuelokuvassa erittäin rehti, rehellinen ja varteenotettava jäpikkä matkustaa tekoaikakautensa esitystavan mukaisesti jatkeenaan roikkuvan vaimonsa kanssa Unkariin, jossa auto-onnettomuus ajaa pariskunnan omituisen porhon 30-lukulaisen futuristiseen asuntoon. Talossa alkaa tapahtua kummia, mutta The Black Cat koostuu lähinnä siitä, että Lugosi ja Karloff esittävät itseään. Kauhulegendojen campit maneerit jaksoivat kannatella"

"Honeymooning in Hungary, Joan and Peter Allison share their train compartment with Dr. Vitus Verdegast, a tragic man who is returning to the remains of the town he defended before becoming a prisoner of war for fifteen years. When their hotel-bound bus crashes in a mountain storm and Joan is injured, the travellers seek refuge in the home, built fortress-like upon the site of a bloody battlefield, of famed architect Hjalmar Poelzig, where Verdegast learns his wife's fate and grieves for his lost"

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Based loosely on one of Edgar Allen Poe’s most disquieting tales, 1934’s The Black Cat is one of the neglected jewels in Universal Studios’s horror crown. Edgar Ulmer’s melancholy film is a confrontation between two disturbed World War I veterans, one warped by an evil faith and the other a shattered ghost of a man driven by revenge, and the young couple that becomes entangled in their twisted game. It’s a fable of modernity darkened with war, obsession, and madness. Much like the othe"

"October 9 "You must be indulgent of Dr. Verdegast's weakness. He is the unfortunate victim of one of the commoner phobias, but in an extreme form. He has an intense and all-consuming horror of cats." Decided to follow White Zombie up with another Bela Lugosi film, so I went with this. While this movie isn't anything too special, what really made it for me was Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. This is the first movie I've seen both of them in and they were great together. It's one of the cases w"
