ALTITUDE FILMS BRINGS THE RAVEN TO UK DVD
It's an exciting week for fans of classic horror, as new UK distributor Altitude Films is bringing a plethora of atmospheric chillers to DVD. We'll be taking a look at one release each day for the next seven days and we'll cap it off with a contest in which you can win the entire release slate in one bundle. Keep your eyes on the articles and look out for the contest when it goes live. This is one competition you won't want to miss!
Today we're taking a look at another horror film that brought horror icons Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi for a second time: The Raven. Here, Lugosi plays an Edgar Allen Poe-obsessed surgeon who has his own torture dungeon.
Following the success of The Black Cat Karloff and Lugosi teamed up again for another classic slice of horror. Lugosi gives one of his finest performances as the brilliant but deranged surgeon who becomes obsessed with a beautiful dancer after saving her life. He must have her but first must deal with her fiancé and father and plans to take care of them in his chamber of Edgar Allen Poe-inspired torture devices. To do the dirty work he enlists the aid of a wanted criminal (Karloff) whom he disfigures with the promise of restoring his features when the job is done.
The Raven is released on DVD by Altitude Films on 27th May 2013
