They Must Be Destroyed On Sight!


TMBDOS! Episode 211: “White Zombie” & “The Old Dark House” (1932).

August 10th, 2020


Although a week late, and slightly foggy in remembering some specific details about the films, Lee and Daniel return to check out some Universal horror from 1932. First up it's the Victor Halperin-directed "White Zombie", starring Bela Lugosi, and then they move on to "The Old Dark House", directed by James Whale and starring Boris Karloff. Slavery and the true horror of traditional zombies; voodoo drugs; strange facial hair; fancy cinematography out of nowhere; early parody of Gothic horror traditions; and James Whale going full-on with subtext are just a few of the things mentioned in this episode. Also covered: listener comments & what the hosts have watched as of late.
