Two Race Horror shorts

That's the Spirit (1933)

** (out of 4)

F.E. Miller and Mantan Moreland short has the two getting a job in a haunted pawn shop. There are are few laughs scattered throughout this thing, although I'm sure a lot of people will find the rather politically incorrect humor disturbing. The special effects are also quite nice for the period.

Midnight Menace (1946)

* (out of 4)

Forgotten, all black cast horror short about a strange voodoo man who can kill women and then move their bodies wherever he wants. This time out his just wants to torment Lollypop Jones with a body that keeps showing up no matter where he goes. This ultra low-budget film really doesn't have anything going for it other than just being a curiosity. The comedy is really bad and the mystery isn't any better.
