1. The Black Cat 11PM is the standout tonight.
Moody and stylish, with it's art-deco sets, The Black Cat (1934) is a film of unforgettable iconic images. The most memorable being the bodies of beautiful women suspended vertically, in mid-air, inside their glass coffins. Also Karloff and Lugosi at their best.
This film is scheduled to be released in a new DVD soon.
