Eureka are to release a box set of six films starring Boris Karloff which he made for Columbia Pictures.
n The Black Room, Karloff takes on a dual role as twin brothers in 19th century Europe. One of the twins inherits the family castle and suddenly the local women start disappearing…
The Man They Could Not Hang, The Man With Nine Lives, Before I Hang, and The Devil Commands form the “Mad Doctor” cycle, a thematically linked series of films where Karloff always plays a doctor whose obsessions inevitably lead them to murder!
