Karloff at Columbia Sees Six Films Make Their Blu-Ray Debuts [Trailer/Artwork]

A new boxset compiles the six movies Boris Karloff made for Columbia.

Horror icon Boris Karloff made six films with Hollywood studio Columbia, and courtesy of Eureka Entertainment's upcoming boxset 'Karloff at Columbia', all six are set to make their global blu-ray debuts.

In The Black Room, Karloff takes on a dual role as twin brothers in 19th century Europe. One of the twins inherits the family castle and suddenly the local women start disappearing… 

The Man They Could Not Hang, The Man With Nine Lives, Before I Hang and The Devil Commands form the “Mad Doctor” cycle, a thematically linked series of films where Karloff always plays a doctor whose obsessions inevitably lead them to murder!

And finally, The Boogie Man Will Get You is a delightful parody of the “Mad Doctor” films, starring both Karloff and Peter Lorre.

Bonus features include new audio commentaries on The Black Room, Before I Hang and The Boogie Man Will Get You with Kevin Lyons and Jonathan Rigby; new audio commentaries on The Man They Could Not Hang, The Man With Nine Lives and The Devil Commands with author Stephen Jones and author/critic Kim Newman.

The set comes with a limited edition slipcase and collector's booklet featuring writing on all six films by Karloff expert Stephen Jacobs (author of 'Boris Karloff: More Than a Monster'), film critic and author Jon Towlson, and film scholar Craig Ian Mann.

'Karloff at Columbia' is released on UK blu-ray April 19th.
