Movie Details

For many classic horror movie fans, Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff are inseparable from the iconic characters they portrayed. Part of the 13-episode 100 Years of Horror series directed by Ted Newsom and hosted by horror movie star Christopher Lee, 100 Years of Horror: The Gruesome Twosome celebrates the careers of Dracula and Frankenstein. Sometimes appearing in the same movie, Lugosi and Karloff appeared in some of the best (and worst) monster movies ever made. The Gruesome Twosome includes film clips from Lugosi-Karloff vehicles Son of Frankenstein (1939), with Karloff as the Monster and Lugosi as Ygor (not I-gor); The Invisible Ray (1936); Black Friday (1940), and others. Highlights include interviews with Karloff and Lugosi, as well as behind-the-scenes stories from friends, relatives, and co-workers. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
