“Even a man who’s pure of heart
And says his prayers by night
May become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms,
And the autumn moon is bright”


Hello Pulp Friends,

It's Day 5 of this Classic Horror marathon, and it's time for one of the most famous "lost" movies (since the last known existing print was burnt up in vault #7 at the MGM Studios in 1967): "LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT"!

London After Midnight
USA, 1927
directed by Tod Browning
starring: Lon Chaney, Marceline Day, Henry B. Walthall

A house in London, now a lair of vampires, was once the scene of a suicide, even if a neighbor was skeptical about the cause of death. An inspector, using hypnosis, unveils that the murderer is that same neighbor. The movie, now lost, was Lon Chaney’s only incursion into the vampire (or pseudo-vampire) genre.


Please help me spread the word about this event if you are enjoying it: the more the scarier :)

Cheers,
Francesco
