The Boogie Man Will Get You

Double Feature with THE MAN THEY COULD NOT HANG (7:00)

1942 • dir Lew Landers w/Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, Maxie Rosenblum, Frank Puglia • 66 min • 35mm

Just 10 years after his turn as the monster in FRANKENSTEIN, Boris Karloff is already gleefully poking fun at the mad scientist archetype with this kooky comedy that co-stars the great Peter Lorre who is also enjoying the spoof. An eccentric inventor (Karloff) attempts to contribute to the war effort by creating his own superman in his basement laboratory while a local official (Lorre) looks on.

Staff Pick! Kim, Dave
Dave: “Poking fun at mad scientists ‘The Boogie Man Will Get You’ looks to be fun with Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre joining the hilarity”
