THE WOLF MAN, THE INVISIBLE MAN & THE MUMMY

THE WOLF MAN

(1941, George Waggner) After Bela Lugosi puts the bite on him, the hairs star spouting on Lon Chaney Jr., with dad Claude Rains wielding that silver-tipped cane. Approx. 70 min. 35mm.
SUN 1:00, 5:25, 9:50

THE WOLF MAN, THE INVISIBLE MAN & THE MUMMY

THE INVISIBLE MAN

(1933, James Whale) “You fool! Together we could have ruled the world!” Faithful adaptation of H.G. Wells’ classic and stage star Claude Rains’ film debut — though, for obvious reasons, not seen until the final moments. Approx. 71 min. 35mm.
SUN 2:25, 6:50

“Whale's most elegantly inventive movie... a film that always feels both more sinister and more prankish than you remember it as: it’s a startling piece of studio-made surrealism.”
– Terrence Rafferty, The New York Times (November 29, 2009)

“The screenplay is full of rich dialogue; no one could have delivered it better than the young, velvet-voiced Rains. The special effectts are remarkable even today, as in a sequence worthy of a surrealist’s nightmare.”
– Stephen Whitty, The Star-Ledger

“A handsomely tricked-up version of the Wells fantasy, impressively well done with witty special effects and the Whale humor that enlivened The Old Dark House and The Bride of Frankenstein.”
– Pauline Kael

“Engrossing adaptation played for suspense, pathos and tongue-in-cheek humour.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)

THE WOLF MAN, THE INVISIBLE MAN & THE MUMMY

THE MUMMY

(1932, Karl Freund) After discovering the 3,000 year old mummy of Imhotep, Bramwell Fletcher starts reading the Scroll of Thoth — big mistake! Bad luck, too, for Zita Johann, spitting image of the revived Karloff’s last love. Approx. 72 min. 35mm.
SUN 3:50, 8:15
MON 3:50, 10:25

"Unnerves because instead of fast chills there are long, quiet, ominous scenes; the lighting is so masterly and the moods are so effectively sustained that the pictures give one prickly sensations... No other horror film has ever achieved so many emotional effects  by lighting; this inexpensively made film has a languorous, poetic feeling, and the eroticism that lives on under Karloff’s wrinkled parchment skin is like a bad dream of undying love.”
– Pauline Kael

“Freund's lighting is a wonder.”
– Dave Kehr
