"Keeper of the grotto of torture! Behind the barred doors of his laboratory, this human devil performs fiendish experiments on the helpless victims of a secret exotic vapor!"
Aided by a dwarf, (Rossitto), Dr. Lorenz, (Lugosi), a botanist kidnaps brides and removes some of their glandular fluids with which he tries to restore his aging wife's, (Russell), youth and beauty. Assisted by his servant, (Urecal), and her two deformed sons, the doctor keeps the bodies of the kidnap victims alive in an undergriund vault until their glands run out of fluid. A young cub reporter, (Walters), eventually reveals the botanist's unorthodox activities.
Filmed in just 20 days, this is poverty row horror at it's laughable best. Both Lorenz and his wife sleep in matching coffins only to maintain Lugosi's Dracula reputation, however, Russell refused to lie in the coffin, so a stand-in was used instead.
The plot was later updated for Voodoo Man also starring Bela Lugosi.

CREATION (1930/RKO.) US. Film Abandoned.
|This was to be a project by Willis
O'Brien for Harry O'Hoyt with animated dinosaurs. The only existing footage from the
film shows a crew member, (Harolde), shooting a baby triceratops and then being gored to
death by it's mother.
Marcel Delgado, Willis O'Brien and Harry O. Hoyt worked on CREATION from 1930-31.
Hoyt planned to make LOST ATLANTIS in 1938 produced by Trem Carr with effects by Fred Jackman, but this was also abandoned. Producer Merian C. Cooper was so impressed with the test reel that he hired O'Brien to supervise the effects work on his latest project THE EIGHTH WONDER OF THE WORLD, later known as King Kong in 1933.

Credits: Dir: John H. Auer; Prod: John H. Auer & Herb Hayman; Sc: Lewis Graham & Edward Olmstead; Ph: Larry Williams; Ed: Leonard Wheeler; Art: William Saulter; Mu: Fred Ryle; Mus: Milton Schwartzwald.
From a story by John H. Auer based loosely on Edgar Allan Poe's "The Premature Burial".
Cast: Erich Von Stroheim, Dwight Frye, Paul Guilfoyle, Harriet Russell, Edward Van Sloan, John Bohn, Geraldine Kay, Jeane Kelly, Patsy Berlin, Joe Verdi, Dean Raymond.
"You'll shudder, shiver, shriek at the season's super-shocker!"
Dr. Crespi's, (von Stroheim), former girlfriend, (Russell), pleads with him to save the life of her husband Stephen Ross, (Bohn), but instead he induces catalepsy in the man whom he hates for marrying his girlfriend. For all intents and purposes Ross seems dead and is buried alive, but Crespi's colleagues Dr . Arnold, (Guilfoyle), and Dr. Thomas, (Frye), become suspicious of the man's death and have the body exhumed for an autopsy. When they cut into the "corpse" Ross regains conciousness, stalks the hospital corridors and confronts Crespi, who upon seeing the man he supposedly killed, commits suicide.
A crudely executed film with Frye in a rare leading role. Enjoyable for its atmosphere, Stroheim's hysterical performance and nice creepy details.

|"She was marked with the curse of those who slink
and court and kill by night!"
"A tender tale of terror!"
Irena, (Simon), returns from death as an apparition to aid and comfort her lonely little daughter Amy, (Carter), but the girl's step-mother Alice, (Randolph), and her father, (Smith), are concerned over her obsession with Irena. Amy also enjoys the company of crippled neighbour Mrs. Farren, (Dean), an aging actress who tells her stories of the "Headless Horseman" and welcomes her into her home despite the jealousy of the woman's daughter Barbara, (Russell). Eventually Amy is saved from Barbara's clutches by her father.
With almost nothing to do with cats, the studio demanded that "cat" was in the title to help distribution and hopefully repeat the success of The Cat People. This is more a compelling and touching drama about the trials of childhood with the addition of Lewton's usual haunting atmosphere and flair for fantasy.
Gunther Fritsch began directing, but he relinquished the chair to Wise when he was called up for the army. This is Wise's directing debut.
