Doctor X


Dir. Michael Curtiz (1932).
One of the major horror films of the early 1930s, directed with great visual style by Curtiz, this takes place largely in a spooky old dark house atop the cliffs on Long Island where a monster has been strangling people during full moons. Throw in a bit of cannibalism, necrophilia, and dismemberment and mix with some screams from perpetually endangered Fay Wray, and you get your money’s worth of goose bumps.
