RARE Horror and Science Fiction Thrillers
Phantom of the Rue Morgue
"Phantom of the Rue Morgue," based loosely on an Edgar Allen Poe story, offers everything you could want for an escape into campy fun. Dark, rainy streets, cries in the night, a mysterious figure who appears out of the gaslit fog to create mayhem. The usual roles of unconventional scientists (are they MAD?), serious, plodding investigators, beautiful young women in peril--all these appear and are satisfying performed.
This movie is recommended especially for early-teen girls having sleepover parties but is a delight for all ages!
