4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fun set of Universal Horror Films 7 novembre 2007
Par Shawn McKenna - Publié sur
Format: DVD
I wish sets like Universal Horror Classic Movie Archive would not be specific to a chain (Best Buy for this set) since the availability tends to be too small and after they sell out the prices become ridiculous (like The Classic Sci-fi Ultimate Collection another Best Buy exclusive). Of course, as soon as I saw this for sale I knew I needed to add it to my early horror collection. All of these are on DVD for the first time and the transfers look quite good. Several of these were made quite quickly like "Man Made Monster" and "Horror Island" and a couple of these like "Captive Wild Woman" are not really horror (though nowhere near as bad as the advertising on the "The Boris Karloff Collection" also on Universal), but fans of the 40's monster/horror genre are going to want (need) this on their shelf. Now only if Universal had added some supplements.

Black Cat (1941): This movie is not a remake of the superior 1934 version nor bares resemblance to Poe's short story. It does have two stars at that time with a fading Bela Lugosi (somewhat played against type so that is interesting) and Basil Rathbone (there is a nice little in-joke referencing him as Sherlock Holmes). Neither is the lead though which would belong to future Academy Award winner Broderick Crawford who plays a character who wants to buy the estate. The plot of a heiress inviting relatives over to discuss her will and subsequent death and subsequent trapping of the rest of the guests in the house (bad weather) as they slowly get killed off seems stereotypical of this genre which was similar to the "Cat and the Canary" films (1927 & 1939). Gale Sondergaard who plays the maid here performs a similar role in the 1939 version (and other films). The pace is a bit slow and Hugh Herbert's performance (he plays a house and antique appraiser who is completely oblivious to everything) was vaudevillian comedy way overdone and reminds me of a more annoying Costello. If it was toned down it could have been beneficial. Black Cat is an OK film with nice sets and good performances by the secondary character actors.

Man Made Monster (1941): Director George Waggner was extraordinarily busy during 1940/1941 helping helm several cheap horror/suspense films like "Man Made Monster" until his masterpiece "The Wolf Man". This film would also star the consummate commonplace common-man in Lon Chaney Jr. (still in his dad's shadow at this point; though he would not be typecast in horror until "The Wolf Man") who's role in this film is analogous to that of the furred fanged fury. Chaney plays Dan McCormick an oafish congenial low-rent magician who survived an electrocution (and crash) and is found by two scientists - one who wants to help him and one who wants to exploit him (Lionel Atwill). "Man Made Monster" is a decent film for an extremely low budget and quickly shot (apparently three weeks according to IMDB) movie. You have to love the glow that surrounds him as his powers grow. This movie seems more like a sci-fi film than horror though.

Horror Island (1941): Another George Waggner horror film of 1941 that was on a double bill of "Man Made Monster". The film starts with Bill Martin (Dick Foran) as a down-on-luck entrepreneur who avoids bill collectors while trying to make big on his next crazy idea. He happens on half a map that might lead to treasure on an island he owns. He decides to make his island/castle a tourist spot so he can make money regardless if there is treasure or not. The first bunch he takes all seems suspicious. Once they get to the island it then takes from Agatha Cristie's "And Then There Were None" (which was not that original in the first place). Not too much interesting in this film, but nothing horrific either. Some nice sets and situations, but everything feels rushed. This film has one of the most egregious examples of getting a crew member on film. As the cast enters the castle and the camera pans toward the inside, a grip moving a portable light moves towards the left, gets his cord stuck on a table, points his light down and slowly moves out-of-screen after he has already hit the midpoint of the camera shot -- unintended hilarity. This is partially because it had a 12-day shooting schedule and was released less than a month after production started.

Night Monster (1942): The plot: Dr. Lynne Harper gets summoned to Ingston Mansion to help the daughter of the invalid owner (Kurt Ingston) Margaret Ingston who thinks she is going insane because of what she sees, the murders near the house and the fact that the maid keeps cleaning up blood spots. Meanwhile three doctors have been invited also to witness the improvement of Kurt who was left crippled because of an operation by the three (though it was not necessarily their fault). Kurt has been using the help of a fakir Agor Singh who is tapped into the spiritual power. Also visiting is Dick Baldwin (the protagonist) a writer who is friends with Kurt. Soon more killings happen in the household. Could it be the fakir, the butler Rolf (Bela Lugosi and we know the butler always does it, or does he), the misogynistic chauffer, the owner or the crazed daughter? Night Monster is an effectively directed film by Ford Beebee (director of the Bomba series and lots of sci-fi/horror `B' films) that works well for most of the movie but fails at the very end. This is because it is obvious who the culprit is and the special effects are a bit of a let down too. However, there are enough suspects at the beginning to keep it interesting; though, there is the age old problem that when there are murders about it would be best to leave the house.

Captive Wild Woman (1943): Dr. Sigmund Walters (Universal hammy horror stalwart John Carradine) is an endocrinologist who tampers with science and transforms a female ape to a human (played by Acquanetta, yes that is her name probably influence by the hair spray) with borrowed glands from other females. While the direction by Edward Dmytryk, who would later helm the excellent Caine Mutiny (1954) is solid, and the acting is decent, the plot is `b' level entertainment that is ridiculous (typical Universal Horror film of the time). There is a plethora of stock footage featuring a real lion tamer that outdoes the rest of the action in this movie. I cannot believe they made two sequels to this film (which I have not seen): Jungle Woman (1944) with Acquanetta reprising her role and The Jungle Captive (1945) with Vicky Lane as the ape girl. Once again this proves that sequels are nothing new.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Entertaining, and not the same "Black Cat". 4 octobre 2007
Par P. Wolske - Publié sur
Format: DVD
This collection of five Universal films aren't classics, but every one is fun, with good production values. And note that "The Black Cat" is NOT the 1934 Lugosi/Karloff film, but a 1941 film with Lugosi, Basil Rathbone, Gale Sondergaard, Broderick Crawford, Anne Gwynne, and Hugh Herbert! If those names mean anything to you, you'll really love this set. Other actors include John Carradine, Lionel Atwill, Lon Chaney Jr, Evelyn Ankers, and many more. For $17 as a Best Buy exclusive, that's only 3 1/2 bucks a movie. Picture quality is pristine, and they're even closed captioned. Hurry, because when they've sold out, that's it.

I bought this DVD set around Halloween 07, it was an exclusive Best Buy 2 disc DVD set and I am finally getting to it now. I've got so many horror films to catch up on! This DVD set contains five rare Universal films from the 40's. The prints are clean and there some trailers, but the best reason to buy this set is because all the films included are seeing their first DVD releases! If your a Universal fan it's a great set. I will review each film as I watch them, so I will be adding to this. The first film 'The Black Cat' is a film I had never seen. When I bought the set I thought it was the 1934 classic with Karloff and Lugosi....I'm glad it wasn't as I already have that film on the Bela Lugosi collection.......anyway..... 'The Black Cat' on this set is a murder/mystery/comedy from 1941. The film stars Basil Rathbone and Bela Lugosi in a fun supporting character. I did like this fun film full of secret passages and things that go bump in the night. The next film 'Man Made Monster' is a very good Lon Chaney Jr. film. The Third film 'Horror Island' is a misleading title as there isn't much horror going on, on this island! It's actually a mystery/comedy film that doesn't have much comedy in it either. This is the weakest of the five films on this set. I have reviewed these films on the individual release or VHS release. Please look for those releases.

The Black Cat(1941)3 1/2 Stars
Man Made Monster 4 1/4 Stars
Horror Island 2 1/4 Stars
Night Monster 4 Stars
Captive Wild Woman 3 Stars

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Universal Gold! 8 février 2010

I had been searching for a copy of NIGHT MONSTER for years on DVD but to no avail so it was great when Universal released it along with 4 other titles. Although none of these films reached the iconic status of the legendary Universal movies that featured the Wolfman, Dracula, etc. they are nevertheless, snappy little films with enough style and substance to be very enjoyable, esp is you like the classic black & white Universal tradition of old-fashioned horror. And the quality is surprisingly good. Well worth the price.

Here are some of the less well-known entries in the Universal horror cycle. But each is a gem! This collection is a great way to expand your horror collection or view these films for the first time. Highly recommended!
