The Black Pit of Dr. M
9 hours ago
Directed by Fernando Méndez, 1959′s The Black Pit of Dr. M (Aka Mysteries from the Beyond) is several steps above the usual monster movie fare spilling out of Mexico in the late fifties and early sixties. Dr. M‘s predictable parade of pedestrian horror movie tropes, including mad scientists, zombies and mediums all staged inside an insane asylum is given unexpected beauty by Mendez’ imaginative direction and cinematographer Victor Herrera’s luminous black and white imagery. This outrageous trailer keeps blacking out the image because it’s too horrible to show!

One of the more provocative entries in Warner Bros.’ line of socially conscious potboilers, Black Legion is based on the real events surrounding a murderous splinter group of the Ku Klux Klan that, though numbering only around 30,000 members, still managed to rattle the nerves of a large portion of the populace in the late thirties. Humphrey Bogart stars as the ill-fated pawn of the black-hooded vigilantes and he’s supported by Warner Bros.’ favorite gum-cracking girlfriend, Ann Sheridan, along with future Universal contractor Dick Foran as his best friend. Directed by Archie Mayo with some uncredited help from Michael Curtiz.
