October 5 - The Body Snatcher
In 19th-century Edinburgh, a brilliant surgeon who needs cadavers for anatomical research must rely on a graverobber (Boris Karloff) to supply dead bodies. But are these specimens actually from the graveyard? With Henry Daniell, Bela Lugosi. Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s short story, which was in turn based on a grisly real-life case that scandalized Scotland in the early 1800s.
