The Black Cat DVD


In the first pairing on horror greats Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi star in this shocking horror classic of Satanism and murder. A young couple Peter (David Manners) and Joan Allison (Julie Bishop) are honeymooning in Hungary. Traveling by train they share a compartment with Dr Werdegast (Lugosi) a freed POW who seeks news of his wife and daughter and vengeance on Hjalmar Poelzig (Karloff) the man whose betrayal lead to his imprisonment. When their hotel bound bus crashes on a lonely road the honeymooners find no alternative but to spend the night at the house... of Herr Poelzig. Poelzig's attention to Joan and her uncharacteristic behaviour compels the couple to pack their bags until they learn they are being held captive. Trapped in the mausoleum-like house the Allisons discover that Poelzig functions as a high priest at Black Mass and he has chosen Joan to be the Devil's bride. With Werdegast swearing revenge and out for retribution the honeymooners soon find themselves trapped in the two men's horrifying battle of wits. [show more]

Classic horror starring Bela Lugosi. While honeymooning in Budapest, young couple Peter (David Manners) and Joan Allison (Julie Bishop) meet Doctor Vitus Verdegast (Lugosi), who is en route to the mansion of his old 'friend', Hjalmar Poelzig (Boris Karloff). Forced to enjoy Poelzig's hospitality themselves following a bus crash, the Allisons discover that he is in fact a devil worshipper who betrayed Verdegast and thousands of their countrymen during WWI. Verdegast now wants revenge - but Poelzig pre-empts him by taking his guests prisoner, announcing his intention to turn Joan into the bride of Satan..
