Format: DVD
Ce coffret comprend trois films de John Brahm, produit par la FOX entre 1942 et 1945, tous magnifiquement restaurés. Le premier film est dans l'ordre chronologique THE UNDYING MONSTER (1942), un histoire de loup-garou dans la tradition des films Universal de la décennie précédente. Le film doit beaucoup à la photographie de Lucien Ballard. Le deuxième film est THE LODGER (Jack l'Eventreur, 1944, avec Laird Cregard et George Sanders). C'est le remake du film d'Hitchcock de 1929. C'est un chef d'oeuvre qui se déroule dans l'Angleterre de 1900. Idem pour HANGOVER SQUARE (1945, de nouveau avec Cregar et Stevens) et de nouveau un chef d'oeuvre. Les scènes d'anthologie abondent. La première notamment, mais aussi celle du concerto par exemple. Les trois films sont en VOST français. C'est un zone 1. Le coffret comprend sous forme de cartes postales quelques photos du film.

Avant que l' on nous édite ces films en zone 2, j' ai bien fait au moment de sa sortie d' acquérir ce coffret du réalisateur John Brahm en zone 1 (et exclusivement en zone 1) qui est l' une des petites merveilles de plaisir cinéphage des plus intense.

Le moins connu des trois films est un polar lycanthropique très réussi "The Undying Monster" (1942), film court de 63 minutes qui peut faire penser autant par son intrigue à la nouvelle de Conan Doyle "Le chien des Baskerville" (pas besoin d' être un hyper cinéphileux ou un grand littérateux pour le remarquer), mais aussi à un avant-goût, en plus humoristique, de la série TV "Les Experts" par son couple mixte de policiers scientifiques ; cela doit-être même l' une des premières fois où une actrice incarne une policière. Les décors sont assez impressionnants, le film se passe dans une immense bâtisse (longs corridors, escaliers et cryptes) sur une falaise surplombant une mer démontée, la photographie en noir et blanc de Lucien Ballard est de surcroît très inspirée et le rythme rapide donné par John Brahm, on a même par moment du mal à suivre l' action et lire les sous-titres en même temps, procurent un enthousiasme sincère. On reconnaît Charles McGraw, le futur protagoniste des polars de Richard Fleischer et Anthony Mann, dans un second rôle ; il n' est pas cité au générique. MacGraw a une belle bagarre avec l' inspecteur incarné par James Ellison qui sera le héro du chef d' œuvre de Jacques Tourneur : "Vaudou" (1943).

Grande époque, oui, pour ces trois films en noir et blanc au report techniquement parfait, sinon qu'il faut les regarder en 4:3 et non en 16:9 large écran sous peine d'une image déformée. Ce qui est curieux, c'est qu'on voit traiter là presque à la légère, ou disons pratiquement sur le simple mode quasi policier, sans toutes les images horribles qu'on y mettrait aujourd'hui, trois grandes figures du film qui fait peur (je n'aime pas le terme d'horreur, qui prête trop à malentendu) : Jack l'éventreur, le loup garou, et ce dédoublement criminel de la personnalité qui donnera le filon style Dr Jekyll et Mr Hyde. Et le sous-titrage français est impec (il faut les étrangers pour n'y point trouver de fautes d'orthographe en français...).

Quand j'ai vue qu'il y avait la disponibilité de ces trois films à un prix concurrenciel, je n'y pouvait croire a mes yeux, parce que ces films sont absolument hors de marché dans mon pays et très, très rares partout. En particulier "The Undying Monster" qui n'est jamais sorti en Italie. Donc, merci bien pour m'avoir permis de voir, et du façon le plus parfait, ces trois meconnus chefs d'oeuvre du suspense.

HASH(0x90a7d840) étoiles sur 5 Long Lost Fox Horror Gems. 2 octobre 2007
Par R. Rosener - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Three little known but effective horror films from a major hollywood studio complete this box set. Last year MGM released some of their little known horror films and now Fox has followed suite.
None of the these titles have been on DVD before, and even rarely on VHS. They occasionally showed up on the lackluster Fox Movie Channel a few years ago at odd hours of the early morning. It was on such an occasion that I encountered "The Lodger". This is a top notch effort which rests comfortably between the Gaslight thriller and the classic horror film. Cregar plays the villain with an off kilter, understated creepiness that was way ahead of it's time and could be called the screen's first serial killer performance.
The cinematography looks better and more atmospheric than what Universal was shoving out in the mid 40s'. Fog bound London streets and dimly gaslit interiors play with the viewers sense of claustrophobia. You almost feel as trapped by the heavy atmosphere as Cregar's character. Lodger is no doubt a lost classic of psychological horror.

I have to disagree with other reviewers that "Undying Monster" is the poor cousin of this set. "Hangover Square" feels more like a re-make of Lodger than a film of its own right. But Undying Monster takes us to the dark, atmospheric Sea coast. The sparse sets and jagged cliffs and caves work beautifully here. We have Jane Eyre meets Bram Stoker. A family curse is the plot engine to drive the lush monochrome cinematography. In fact Undying Monster boasts some of the best shots of the set, particularly the opening interior shot as the moon streams into a tudor drawing room. It looked great on the badly duped VHS copy I've had for years. On DVD it promises to be stunning. The titular Monster is not revealed until near the end, so forget about it and soak up the atmosphere. There is an interesting sequence near the end, all done in long shot as if you were a passerby. It's effective and helps cover the lack of make up talent Fox had for horror films.
These films were rarely seen even back in the days of Late Night Creature Features. Universal's films are better known, and MGM's more highly regarded by critics. But these lost Fox Horror films can now find an audience of their own and be appreciated for the loving cinematography.
If you're tired of the bad Hollywood "horror" films lately, which bear more resemblance to a series of snuff films rather than anything else, this box set is for you. Curl up on your couch with the DVD remote clutched in your hand. Be sure to darken the room, and quiet the mind. The intelligence and atmosphere of these gothic horrors will soon overcome the decades they have sat waiting in Fox's vault to return to the screen.

HASH(0x9139212c) étoiles sur 5 Horrors? 24 décembre 2007
Par mrliteral - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
In the 1930s, the relatively new field of horror cinema was dominated by Universal, with its often wonderful monster movies such as Dracula, Frankenstein and the Mummy. As the Universal movies got campier in the 1940s, not many studios really filled the void. Certainly, the best of 1940s horror came from Val Lewton's pictures for RKO (Cat People, The Leopard Man and others). Fox, on the other hand, did not really have a reputation for horror in this era, as is obvious from the Fox Horror Classics set. That's not to say that they are bad movies, just that I don't know if they are really horror.

Besides being Fox movies, the three movies in this set are also tied together by all being directed by John Brahm. First made of these three - and the closest to being a horror movie - is also the weakest in the set: The Undying Monster. The story deals with the isolated Hammond family that is plagued by a curse that has a monster preying on the male Hammonds over the past few generations. This is a pale imitation of two genres made famous by Universal: the monster movie (particularly the Wolf Man) and the mystery movie (particularly the Sherlock Holmes movies, though Fox was actually the first to do the Rathbone movies). The biggest failing of the movie is the fact that the monster is on screen too infrequently.

Much better is The Lodger, a remake of what was Alfred Hitchcock's first suspense movie. Even if you've watched the older version, however, this one is still fun to watch and substantially different, plotwise. Among the big names in the movie are Merle Oberon and George Sanders, but the star is Laird Cregar who plays the title character. Sadly, Cregar's career was very short (less than a decade) because he steals the show in most of his movies (especially in I Wake Up Screaming, part of the Fox Film Noir series). The movie itself deals with Cregar as Jack the Ripper, taking up residence in a rooming house where his fellow residents begin to suspect he may not be fully on the up-and-up.

Best of all is Hangover Square. In a way, it is a reworking of The Lodger to capitalize on that movie's box office success, with Sanders and Cregar both returning in hero and villain roles respectively. Actually, Cregar is not so much evil as sick, driven under stress to take on a second, homicidal personality; in his lucid moments, however, he is a good guy, a musician who falls for bad girl Linda Darnell, my favorite femme fatale from the 1940s (who, like Cregar, would die at a young age under tragic circumstances). Besides Cregar and Darnell, there is also the great music of Bernard Herrmann that is an essential part of the movie.

The Lodger and Hangover Square fit more in the thriller or mystery category than horror, but that doesn't diminish their quality. Overall, The Undying Monster merits a low three stars, The Lodger four and Hangover Square five. Add to that some special features, most notably commentaries on the Cregar movies and some mini-documentaries on Cregar and Brahm, and this set merits a full five stars. It may not really be a horror set, but Fox Horror Classics is a worthwhile collection of some generally obscure movies.

The Fox set of classic films are just great.
The Lodger remake from 44' is awesome and
one of the better Jack the Ripper movies made.
Hangover Square has most of same cast as Lodger
and is more film noir/mystery than horror but
also very well made. Better than most. Undying
Monster was an attempt at making a wolfman movie
but it's more of a mystery movie but again very
well made and acted. I highly recommend this set.

HASH(0x90843750) étoiles sur 5 Not really horror but good cheap package 15 novembre 2007
Par Douglas M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
This DVD collection contains 3 films from 20th Century Fox directed by German John Brahm. It would have been better if called the John Brahm Collection because only one of the films is really of the horror genre, the other 2 being psychological thrillers. The package is not as good as it might have been if a greater variety of films had been included.

"The Undying Monster" is a classy B picture with great photography, some excellent sets and a mobile camera worthy of an A. The film betrays its B status with the woeful James Ellison badly miscast as a Scotland Yard forensic expert and a melodramatic plot set in a dark house by the sea. Brahm's direction is very good in the circumstances and there are some good isolated scenes but overall, the effect is a bit corny and the plot development is truncated as befits a B film.

The other films are two book ends starring the enigmatic Laird Cregar. Cregar was a superb character actor with a complex and short life which is described in a very worthwhile documentary included in the package.

"The Lodger" is Brahm's version of Jack the Ripper with a dose of "Phantom of the Opera". Since it is obvious that Cregar plays the Ripper, the film relies on its camera angles, moody lighting and psychological implications for its suspense. Merle Oberon is the leading lady. Oberon was a wooden English actress with a clipped hostess delivery and stylish presence. As usual, she does not project much personality. She performs 2 musical hall numbers, with poor lip-synching, and one famous critic said "Merle Oberon performs the Can Can. Might we call it the Can't Can't" - hilarious but a bit harsh. With the exception of Cregar's towering performance, I find the film strangely detached and uninvolving and a number of the sets are 2 dimensional.

"Hangover Square" is the best film in this package. Cregar was unhappy because the screenplay changed the settings of the novel among other things and it was obvious that Darryl F. Zanuck, never one to miss an opportunity to repeat a success, transformed it into a sequel to "The Lodger" with a dose of "Of Human Bondage". Cregar plays a schizophrenic composer and gives a masterly portrayal. Linda Darnell plays the slut who seduces him and she is very good in her typical artificial way even if she squeals in moments of enthusiasm. She is spectacularly photographed and her beauty was never more lush. The film touches on film noir with the lighting and low slung camera angles and particularly in Darnell's performance.

The prints of the films are very good although I was surprised by an obvious tear in "Hangover Square" and the appearance of a white vertical line at one point. The DVD contains a generous list of extras including trailers, stills and some worthwhile commentaries with the exception of Richard Schickel's pointless commentary on "Hangover Square". Schickel needs a shot of adrenalin. He sounds as if he is half asleep and many of his comments are cursory. Maybe the producers of the DVD realized because "Hangover Square" actually has 2 commentaries and the other one is far superior. Charming Faye Marlowe who had a supporting role in the film speaks to an excellent historian. Her memory is vivid and she adds an unusual personal touch, a rare occurrence with a classic film since most of the participants are usually dead of course.

Overall, the value of this set is in the preservation of Laird Cregar's impressive acting. The rest is secondary.

HASH(0x9061e288) étoiles sur 5 Misleading Labeling of Thriller Collection 28 octobre 2007
Par David E. Baldwin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
Titling this collection of thrillers from director John Brahm is misleading because only one of the films, "The Undying Monster", has a remotely supernatural element to it. That said, there's much to recommend here because these films are masterfully directed and highly literate. It would behoove the viewer to check this set out and the Val Lewton box set that Warners released a few years back as examples of intelligently made chillers. Two of the films also showcase the prodigious talents of Laird Cregar, who died tragically young. His work here in "The Lodger" and "Hangover Square" are his best work along with his role as a dogged detective in the noir classic, "I Wake Up Screaming".
"The Lodger"-A good film with a superb turn by Cregar as a mysterious pathologist. A lot of creepy atmosphere but the mystery in this Jack the Ripper tale is obvious and telegraphed early on. Four stars.
"Hangover Square"-The best of the three films by far. Cregar gives probably his best performance as the tormented composer with a possible split personality. Brahm perfectly captures the eeriness of turn-of-the-century London. Dynamic Bernard Herrmann score. The ending is a classic. Five stars.
"The Undying Monster"-The weakest entry in the bunch. Even at it's sixty-three minute running time there's a lot of filler. Film concerns a family with a dark secret being investigated by Scotland Yard in the wake of a murder. Intelligent but long-winded. Three stars.
