|I love painted movie posters. The colors in this one are wonderful.|
|Poelzig leading the black mass|
|Little did Joan and Peter know their European honeymoon would be so scary.|
|Poelzig and Vertegast's daughter|
The verbal battling between Poelzig and Vertegast is intense and Vertegast's descent into despair is frightening.
I think I love black and white movies so much because the lighting is usually so beautiful. The mood is always sinister and much of the horror is left up to the imagination...fortunately. I don' t think I'd want to see Vertegast's revenge in any great detail.
No, not much gore or any sudden shocks, but I prefer interesting characters and a plot.
If you want to be creeped out emotionally....you might want to check out The Black Cat..... starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi(1934)
