Two Great Horror films in one day!
- The Wolfman (1942) - Upon the death of his brother, Larry Talbot returns from America to his ancestral home in Wales. He visits a gypsy camp with village girl Jenny Williams, who is attacked by Bela, a gypsy who has turned into a werewolf. Larry kills the werewolf but is bitten during the fight. Bela's mother tells him that this will cause him to become a werewolf at each full moon. Larry confesses his plight to his unbelieving father, Sir John, who then joins the villagers in a hunt for the wolf. Larry, transformed by the full moon, heads for the forest and a fateful meeting with both Sir John and Gwen. Rating: NR, 70 mins.
- The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) - James Whale's wild gothic concoction is generally acknowledged as the best film in the Frankenstein series. The Monster has never been more sympathetic than he is in an idyllic scene, adapted from Mary Shelley's novel, in which he takes refuge in the cottage of a blind man who teaches him the pleasure of food, drink, music, and a good cigar. The laboratory scene in which Dr. Frankenstein creates a mate for the Monster is, perhaps, the most spectacular climax in this genre’s history. Rating: NR, 75 mins.
