THE NADIR OF THE BRUTE MAN

THE NADIR OF THE  BRUTE MAN

Thought I would spend sometime writing about the Universal studios film THE BRUTE MAN (1946) as it seems to get ignored by many people as it is perhaps the lowest point from what the studio had produced. This picture as perhaps a few of you know had Rondo Hatton as 'The Creeper" in what was the end of the Universal Studios cycle of Horror films.

I covered movies and genres I…

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
