“[Bela Lugosi] pretty much steals the movie in his last really juicy role.” – Village Voice

Baron Wolf von Frankenstein (Basil Rathbone) is determined to prove the legitimacy of his father’s scientific work, thus rescuing the family name from disgrace. With the help of Ygor (Bela Lugosi), a grave robber, Wolf successfully reanimates the monster (Boris Karloff) his father originally brought back from the dead. But when several villagers are killed mysteriously, Wolf must find the culprit in order to vindicate his creation, or face the possibility that he may be responsible.

Our sponsor of the screening, Mad Shelley Comics, will be present to discuss their new comic “Halloween Girl Book Two: Dead Reckoning.”

Free copies of the HALLOWEEN GIRL: Dead Reckoning will be given out to the first 100 ticket holders! The author, Richard T. Wilson will also be on hand to autograph the books in celebration of its release.
