The Black Room

A film by Roy William Neill
Starring Boris Karloff, Marian Marsh

Boris Karloff versus… Boris Karloff!! This is a superb, underrated gothic horror film with a heavy atmosphere and double your usual dosage of Karloff, and you can thank the good folks at Sony Pictures for providing a beautiful archival print for this festival!

In a Tyrolean castle in the late 18th century, twin brothers Gregor and Anton de Berghmann live with an old family prophecy that states the younger brother shall kill the elder in the Black Room of the castle. One of these brothers is evil, natch, and we’re pretty sure its the brother murdering the wives of local peasants, but what we’re not sure about is just what the hell is down that pit in the Black Room…
