Halloween, like Christmas (?), is a great time of year for catching up on favorite movies. Thanksgiving doesn’t have favorite movies. Wait, I lied. PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES. Anyway, back to my first thought. Halloween is the time to re-watch old favorites and how better than on the big screen the way it was originally intended! Wednesday, October 24th, NCM Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies, and Universal will present a double-feature FRANKENSTEIN and THE BRIDE OF FRANKESTEIN at participating theaters. This coincides with Universal’s 100th Anniversary.
In addition to the movies, it will be hosted by TCM Host Robert Osborne. Joining him will be Sara Karloff, the daughter of Boris Karloff, Bela Legosi, Jr., son of the DRACULA star, and Academy Award winning make-up artist, Rick Baker. Interviews and discussions will concern how Karloff and Legosi set the standard for the Hollywood horror film.
