32 Days of Halloween Part VIII, Movie Night No. 21: Scared to Death!

Scared to Death (1947)

For tonight’s feature we go back to 1947 for a bit of curiosity: the lone color film in which Bela Lugosi has a leading role. In fact, as you can see from the poster snippet, Scared to Death was “Photographed in Full Natural Color.” I think you’ll agree that this seems like natural color in the same way that TV commercials you find on VHS tapes where you recorded Battle of the Network Stars are in “natural color.” Also notice how it’s so cheaply made even in the first two minutes, people are flubbing lines and they just had to keep the take.

Oh Bela. You poor guy. You were so much better than all of this.

The film is available for free from Amazon Instant Video if you’re on Prime. It’s also on DVD for just $6.
