A trio of horror tales from the vaults of Universal Pictures, all starring the iconic Boris Karloff.
In the pulse-pounding crime thriller Night Key (dir. Lloyd Corrigan, 1937), Karloff plays the eccentric inventor of a high-tech security system who is kidnapped by a gang of burglars and forced to help them commit a series of robberies. Then, in the lavishly produced The Climax (dir. George Waggner, 1944), Karloff plays the house physician at an Opera house whose insane jealousy drives him to murder. And finally, Karloff stars as a doctor who risks his own life to save the captives of a mad count in The Black Castle (dir. Nathan H. Juran, 1952).

The duo film their exploits on a portable video camera. After Steve accidentally runs down a man on the side of the road, he does his best to hide what he’s done from Brett. However, the dire consequences of Steve’s grave actions eventually catch up with him when the pair stop off at a remote redneck bar in the middle of nowhere.
Jobless, directionless and impotently angry at the world around him, Cormac finds purpose among the Mic Tíre – a far-right organization with aspirations to transform Ireland into a primitive idyll.

Feral dogs howl outside the couple’s home each night as Ailbhe struggles to leave the man she once loved, before his body contorts into something inhuman and he sets his newfound strength and bloodlust upon her.
