The Black Room

The Black Room ★★★

The Black Room is a very Edgar Allan Poe -ish type story of two brothers (both played by Boris Karloff) and of a prophecy that states that the younger brother will kill the older brother. While the younger brother is kindly and loved by all the older is reviled and thought to be a murderer. The story is rather short and rather simple, what’s not to like about a little gothic  tale with a  double dose of Boris Karloff during horror month?
