DOCTOR SARCOFIGUY!!! is back with another creepy double feature: The Black Cat 1934 followed by Re-Animator!

The Black Cat (1934 film) Boris Karloff/Bela Lugosi
This classic Edgar Allen Poe adaptation stars horror icons Boris Karloff (FRANKENSTEIN) and Bela Lugosi (DRACULA) in their first cinematic pairing. After a bus crash on a lonely Austrian road, American honeymooners Joan (Jacqueline Wells) and Peter (David Manners) are forced to spend the night at the house of the spectral Hjalmar Poelzig (Karloff), a sinister-looking man who is engaged in an intense feud with mysterious scientist Dr. Werdegast (Bela Lugosi), whom the couple met on the Orient Express. Held captive in the mausoleum against their will, they soon discover that Poelzig is the leader of a Satanic cult and has chosen Joan to be the devil's bride, while Verdegast is there for his own sinister reasons. The couple is then faced with trying to escape amid a horrifying battle of wits. B&W, 65 min. NOT RATED

Followed by:
RE-ANIMATOR
H. P. Lovecraft and Lucio Fulci did not team up to make the most amazing gore-sex grotesquerie of 1985 — but thanks to RE-ANIMATOR, they didn't have to. Director Stuart Gordon and producer Brian Yuzna's joint debut feature — this epochal, awe-inspiring amalgam of FRANKENSTEIN, THE BEYOND and REVENGE OF THE NERDS — is where science meets chaos to produce a hyperactive overdose of gruesome insanity. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) is a new Miskatonic University student who moonlights as a mad scientist, intent on perfecting a serum that «re-animates» corpses. Soon, everyone wants a piece of the action, including an evil professor and his army of slime-covered deadites. With berserk theatrics, career-defining roles from horror icons Combs and Barbara Crampton and a scene of two adults chasing an undead cat in a basement, RE-ANIMATOR isn't just a masterpiece of the horror genre — it's a masterpiece of life. color, 105 min. NOT RATED
