32 Days of Halloween III, Movie Night No. 4: The Body Snatcher

Boris Karloff from The Body Snatcher

That’s right, nothing to do with alien pod people–and certainly not the third remake with Kidman and Craig…no, we’re going back to Robert Louis Stevenson’s story, adapted by Val Lewton and directed by Robert Wise. I decided to go with this film after we wrapped up last year at this time with The Dark Eyes of London with Bela Lugosi. (Previously we were on a Tod Browning kick.) But Lugosi leads us to this film, starring Boris Karloff.

And after seeing Corridors of Blood, I think about that every time I see Karloff anywhere near a medical scene. That one’s worth checking out as well, though less in our genres of choice here.
