The Black Sleep

Tor Johnson, Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, John Carradine and Basil Rathbone star in this mad scientist horror film, and it almost seems like they were running a sale on horror film actors, and in order to cast Basil Rathbone you had to take the other four. Tor, Bela and Lon aren't allowed speaking roles in the film, and John Carradine shouts a bunch of wacky stuff and you wish he wouldn't. The fun and games really start during the last few minutes of the movie when it gets all Tod Browning-esque and someone sets a chamber maid on fire and she runs screaming down the hallway, and that's sort of reminiscent of the fun and games we have on the weekends at Deathrage Towers when we play a game called "Set The Chamber Maid On Fire So She Runs Screaming Down The Hallway". We laugh and laugh and laugh.
