Trailers from Hell: Joe Dante on Unjustly Unheralded Horror Film 'The Black Room,' Starring Boris Karloff
Shock Theater with Joe Dante concludes at Trailers from Hell, with director and Tfh creator Dante introducing 1935's "The Black Room," starring Boris Karloff.A Karloff tour-de-force casts him as twin brothers under the thrall of a grim family curse. One of the most unjustly unheralded Golden Age horror films, it's seldom seen today but deserves a lot more recognition than it's gotten since it disappeared from the tv airwaves in the mid -70s. This cut-down reissue trailer hardly does it justice.

Clip joint: identical twins

On this week's clip joint, Spoom does a double take on the best film clips featuring identical twins

Identical twins or "multiples" as I believe they're more correctly termed, in a slightly unsettling, Minority Report sort of way, hold – for me, at least – a unique fascination. Can you imagine having someone who looks exactly like you hanging around all the time?

Actors probably wouldn't mind though. Any actor who loves themselves – and, if we're being honest, that's probably the majority – would give their right arm to play identical twins.

I will now bring you seven examples that should persuade even the mothers of these beings; seven horrific films featuring, or
