Column: The Vault of Secrets: The Mummy’s Curse (1944)


By Orrin Grey


The Mummy’s Curse (1944). Directed by: Leslie Goodwins. Starring: Lon Chaney Jr., Peter Coe, Virginia Christine.


Welcome back to the Vault of Secrets, where we’ll be unearthing another classic (or not-so-classic) vintage horror film for your delectation. Following on the success of their 1932 classic The Mummy, Universal made four “sequels” in the 1940s (five, if you count the 1955 Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy). The word “sequels” gets quotation marks because they’re really …

Column: The Vault of Secrets: The Invisible Ray (1936)


By Orrin Grey


The Invisible Ray (1936). Directed by: Lambert Hillyer. Starring: Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Frances Drake.


Welcome back to the Vault of Secrets, where we’ll be unearthing another classic (or not-so-classic) vintage horror film for your delectation. Released to TV syndication in the 50s as part of the Shock Theater package of classic Universal horror films, The Invisible Ray is nonetheless not as well known as many of its peers. Though the version I watched was packaged in …

Column: The Vault of Secrets: The Tingler (1959)


The Tingler (1959). Directed by: William Castle. Starring: Vincent Price, Judith Evelyn, Darryl Hickman, Pamela Lincoln.


Happy Halloween from the Vault of Secrets, where we’ll be unearthing another classic (or not-so-classic) vintage horror film for your delectation. While House on Haunted Hill remains my favorite William Castle picture, The Tingler is probably his best one. It’s Castle’s third collaboration with writer Robb White, following on the heels of Macabre and House on Haunted Hill. Price is back, along with …

Column: The Vault of Secrets: It Came from Outer Space (1953)


It Came from Outer Space (1953). Directed by: Jack Arnold. Starring: Richard Carlson, Barbara Rush, Charles Drake.


Welcome back to the Vault of Secrets, where we’ll be unearthing another classic (or not-so-classic) vintage horror film for your delectation. It Came from Outer Space was the first sci-fi film that Universal put out in the then-new 3D format. A fact that I could have guessed even if I hadn’t already known it, based solely on the number of things that fly …
