THE BOOGIE MAN WILL GET YOU / Columbia Pictures Corporation - 1942

It's Friday Frights with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. Here's a fun flick that stars two of our heroes, Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre, Boris plays the nutty Professor Billings and Peter plays jack of all trades, Dr. Lorenz. A mistake left in the film is pretty funny, one actor calls Peter's character.. Dr. Lorre. Check out the tagline on the poster!

Eegah!! sent over a kookie little soundclip for our enjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the boogie-woogie machine, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's our audio offering for... THE BOOGIE MAN WILL GET YOU!

It all starts with the sale of this charming old dilapidated inn...

Winnie buys the old fixer-upper and her boyfriend, Bill, drops in to help her out.

Boris has a mad lab in the basement where he works on his mysterious experiments.

Peter plays mayor, coroner, justice of the peace, notary public, sells insurance, loans money and is the sheriff when necessary! But, when he discovers that Boris is making zombies in the cellar, he wants in on the action because they're being created as supermen to win the war!

There's never a dull moment while they're fixin' stuff in the old place!

Enter the next victim, travelling salesman 'Slapsie' Maxie Rosenbloom. He's ticklish on the top of his head! You can hear Maxie doing some of his lines in the soundclip.

Winnie and Bill spook themselves when they wake up on slabs covered in sheets.

Then, two bumbling state troopers get thrown into the mix.

Then then, enter Frank Puglia as Italian madman, Silvio Baciagalupi.. The Human Bomb! Frank also played Dr. Leonardo in 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH.

I love this silly movie. It's an odd thing, given what they are known for, but Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre made four movies together, and all four are comedies. It may, of course, have something to do with how enormously funny Peter Lorre was just naturally.
