TCM Greatest Classic Films Collection: Horror (House of Wax 1953 / The Haunting 1963 / Freaks / Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde 1941)
HOUSE OF WAX (1953) In the wicked performance that crowned him the movies’ master of the macabre, Vincent Price plays a wax sculptor plunged into madness when an arsonist destroys his life’s work. Unable to use his flame-scarred hands, he devises a murderous way of restocking his museum. Phyllis Kirk, Carolyn Jones and Charles Bronson co-star. THE HAUNTING (1963) Robert Wise directed this first screen version of Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House. Julie Harris, Claire Bloom, Richard Johnson and Russ Tamblyn come to the house to study its supernatural phenomena. Or has the house drawn at least one of them to it? “Guaranteed to chill you” (John Stanley, Creature Features). FREAKS Tod Browning (1931’s Dracula) directs this landmark movie – long banned, now highly lauded – in which the true freaks are not the story’s real-life sideshow performers, but “normals” who mock and abuse them. This unique ensemble play big-top troupers who inflict a terrible revenge on a trapeze artist who treats them as subhumans. DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE (1941) One man is a paragon of virtue. The other is a murderous creature of the London night. They are the same person. Spencer Tracy headlines this version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s tale whose visual flourishes include a...
The Essential Tales of Horror: Frankenstein, The Fall of the House of Usher, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and Dracula (Illustrated)
Presenting The Essential Tales of Horror: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, and Dracula by Bram Stoker with an introduction by Nicholas Tamblyn and illustrations by Katherine Eglund. This collection is part of The Essential Series by Golding Books.The early horror novel and the gothic novel thrived in the 19th Century; the gothic horror novel became one of the most popular of all, as did the vampire novel and, reflecting great strides in technology, the science fiction novel (that had already had a monumental cautionary tale—with the claim to being the first—in that of Frankenstein and his monster).Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897) in many ways defined the "modern vampire," which has remained dominant in popular culture ever since. The British Empire was still a force to be reckoned with at the end of the 19th century, and numerous authors wrote novels of "invasion literature," like Dracula, that captured the fear of mysterious outsiders (which would be echoed in many books and films in the United States, soon to become the dominant power in the next century).The Picture of Dorian Gray (1891), Oscar Wilde's only novel, takes i...

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
Legendary actor John Barrymore gives the striking and altogether eerie performance of a lifetime as the sinister and bizarre Mr. Hyde in this classic of silent cinema. Director John Stuart Robertson stages an unforgettable version of this famous horror story, adding elements that have come to be forever included in future versions. As a good scientist who dares to learn the secrets of Man's morality, Dr. Jekyll soon discovers that he cannot control his own evil and uninhibited alter ego, Mr. Hyde. The popularity of this film owes itself to Barrymore's striking portrayal of the mad doctor. His wild contortions and savage acts of violence leave one mesmerized. In the transformation scenes where Barrymore twists and thrashes his way into the wrinkled and misshapen form of Hyde, it is amazing to note that very few special effects or camera tricks were used. A testimony to Barrymore's wonderfully chilling performance lies in the fact that once a person sees this film, they forevermore associate Barrymore with Mr. Hyde. Want to join the countless others who have experienced the scare of a lifetime? Then put in this DVD and let it work its powers on you. You won't be disappointed.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.co...
