Fast forward to present day, where nurse Reese has taken him home to observe (as one normally does) and to help keep her company (because nothing beats off loneliness like the semi-dead). In this film, legions of Greeks and Trojans fell to their deaths as the two armies fought for dominance. For instance, Werewolf of London in Portland, in June 1935, was taken to be “getting a play on mystic horror angle which has ducat sales value in these parts.”( 8 ) Variety’s Chicago reporter similarly explained The Invisible Ray’s success at the State-Lake in July 1935 by saying that “Boris Karloff is always a magnet in this house,” and commented of The Raven’s good business at the same house in April 1936, horror “is caviar for this audience.”( 9 ) Of Dracula’s Daughter’s success in San Francisco in June 1936, the reporter commented that “films of the horror type always go well in Frisco”, and similarly of a Cleveland theatre the same week, “this spot has regular clientele of thrill-seekers.”( 10 ) Interestingly, none of this available data on the box office performance of horror films in 1936 gives any hint of the upcoming cessation of horror production.

Cast: Todd Anderson, Lisa Cook, Jerry McGhee, Angela Watkins, Sabrina Cook, Bill Dewild, Brian Truitt.
