Black Cats

The Shawn Glinis 2021 Halloween Spooktacular marches on with four adaptations (maybe interpretations? films inspired by? Vague recollections of something someone read once?) of Edgar Allan Poe's classic short story, The Black Cat. Prepare to be thrilled by horror titans like Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff! Chilled by maniacal Italian cat puppets and Jeffrey Combs' southern accent! And deeply confused by an unofficial Suspiria sequel about a vomiting witch!

THIS WEEK: The Black Cat (Ulmer, 1934), The Black Cat (Fulci, 1981), The Black Cat (Cozzi, 1989), The Black Cat (Gordon, 2007)
