UNIVERSAL / THE KOBAL COLLECTION

Film critic and author J. Hoberman introduces this special screening of the classic horror film directed by the versatile and prolific Edgar G. Ulmer. The Czech-born director made films in a wide range of genres, languages, and countries, including four Yiddish talkies in the second half of the 1930s, when living in New York. Set in a striking art deco mansion and starring Béla Lugosi and Boris Karloff, The Black Cat includes satanic rituals, human sacrifice, and intrigue. Hoberman, author of Film After Film: Or, What Became of 21st Century Cinema, will discuss and show clips from other works he considers compelling Jewish horror movies.
