Horror of Horrors

According to The Digital Bits, there's a pretty interesting horror-movie DVD box coming this October:


Warner has also announced that they'll be releasing a Hollywood's Legends of Horror Collection on 10/3 (SRP $39.95), set to include Doctor X (1932), The Return of Doctor X (1939), Mad Love (1935), The Devil-Doll (1936), Mark of the Vampire (1935) and The Mask of Fu Manchu (1932).


Most of these are in the "obscure but interesting for some reason" category -- for example, Mad Love, with its Gregg Toland photography and Germanic direction (by Karl Freund), has been cited as an influence on Citizen Kane.

And of course The Return Of Doctor X features some B picture actor named Bogart.

The Devil-Doll? Isn't that the movie Tod Browning remade from one of his own silents? If so, then it's well worth seeing - wildly peculiar and just plain weird at times. Hilariously terrible ending though.
