Boris Karloff played as Himself (archive footage)
Release: Oct 8, 1998
UNIVERSAL HORROR (Photoplay Productions, 1998), is an inside look of the Golden Age of Hollywood's horror film cycle and the studio that made them famous, Universal Pictures, from the silent era of THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME (1923), starring Lon Chaney, to the end of its cycle with ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948). Aside from many film clips from the Universal vaults, there are exclusive interviews by numerous people, some who have actually seen these movies in theaters upon their release (Ray Bradbury comes to mind), film historian Forrest Ackerman and author David K. Skal giving their input about the cycle; and the surviving actors who took part in the making of these films, particularly Gloria Stuart who appeared in THE OLD DARK HOUSE (1932) and THE INVISIBLE MAN (1933) to Lupita Tovar, the co-star in the Spanish language version of DRACULA (1931). Fans of this genre will joy themselves into seeing interviews of relatives of their favorite horror film star, such as Sara Karloff, daughter to the legendary Boris Karloff (FRANKENSTEIN, THE MUMMY, THE BLACK CAT) himself, among others.
