When it comes to black and white horror films from the classic monster era, it gets no better than James Whale’s crazed sequel to the original “Frankenstein.” If you only know Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein” spoof (yes, this is the one with the blind man scene), you might be surprised how witty, well-acted and truly creepy the original is. For the Indianapolis Museum of Art screening, I’ll have the honor of providing the introduction for a film that’s long been a favorite of mine and many other old-school horror devotees. Details here.
