“Will you survive this Christmas?”
Universal Studios had delved into horror filmmaking with silent films The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) and The Phantom of the Opera (1925), but Dracula (1931) was Universal’s first “talking picture” in the horror genre. Directed by Tod Browning and an uncredited Karl Freund, Dracula was based on the 1924 stage play by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston; adapted from the 1897 novel of the same name by Bram Stoker. After Carl Laemmle, Jr. was able to legally secure the novel’s film rights, screenwriter Garrett Fort began work on adapting Dracula for the movie theater.

“Every few years there is a film that changes the face of cinema. But this is not one of those films… This is a Troma movie!”
The Ingress Tapes and Dead Celebrities are both witty, engaging and at times disturbing pieces and are effective for their conciseness. With their tight running times and often dream-like, art house aesthetic, Michael Fausti’s works act like a short sharp adrenaline shot.

“Weird Monster Escapes! Terror Seizes City! …a woman’s beauty the lure for his dangerous desires!”
Clocking in at just over one minute twenty seconds (including credits), The Tattooist is the briefest of short films, but has enough visual flair to grab your attention. The story revolves around the murderous exploits of the titular character. Because the film is so brief and quick, it’s barely enough time to fully comprehend how the narrative flows. What we do witness is the kidnapping of multiple people and them being subjected to horrendous torture, that resembles something straight from the Saw or Hostel movies.
“Behind his obsession is a sinister secret.”
Fright-Rags rings in Halloween with unique apparel from John Carpenter’s 1978 classic, plus spooky merchandise from the Universal Monsters, Fangoria, Starlog, Gorezone, and Joe Bob Briggs.
