This week on Crestwood House we’ve entered into October proper as we close our our triptych on vampirism in classic horror. Michael May leads us in a discussion on Todd Browning’s return to nosferatu with 1935’s MGM whodunit horror flick, Mark of the Vampire. This remake of Browning’s infamous lost film London After Midnight stars Bela Lugosi and will leave viewers bewildered as the story unfolds.
Join us as we discuss the tragic backstory of Bela Lugosi’s character, the interesting mix of horror and detective movies, and the legacy of Todd Browning and London After Midnight.
