The “Masters of Horror” co-star in two horror classics!
Following the release of “Dracula” and “Frankenstein” in 1931, Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff reigned as Hollywood’s undisputed Masters of Horror. “The Black Cat” would be the first film to co-star the two horror heavyweights and would become Universal Pictures’ highest grossing film of 1934.
The following year, “The Raven” (1935) would unite Boris and Bela once again in a tale of murderous obsession and mad science that also remains a fan favorite to the present day.
“The Black Cat” and “The Raven” stand among the top horror films of Hollywood’s “Golden Age of Horror”!
