Poverty Row Horrors : Monogram, PRC and Republic Horror Films of the Forties Paperback / softback

Part of the McFarland Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

Poverty row horror films were usually inexpensively (some would say cheaply) produced with writing that ranged from bad to atrocious.

Yet these movies with their all-star horror casts (Carradine, Lugosi, Karloff, et al.) and their ape men, mad monsters, devil bats and white zombies still have a loyal audience 50 years after their release.

Essays contain full filmographic data on the 31 horror chillers made by the three studios from 1940 through 1946 and are arranged by year of release.

Each entry includes the date of release, length, production credits, cast credits, interview quotes, and a plot synopsis with critical commentary.

Filmographies for prominent horror actors and actresses, from John Abbott to George Zucco, are provided in the appendices.
