Shock Theater with Joe Dante concludes at Trailers from Hell, with director and TFH creator Dante introducing 1935's "The Black Room," starring Boris Karloff.

A Karloff tour-de-force casts him as twin brothers under the thrall of a grim family curse. One of the most unjustly unheralded Golden Age horror films, it's seldom seen today but deserves a lot more recognition than it's gotten since it disappeared from the tv airwaves in the mid -70s. This cut-down reissue trailer hardly does it justice.
