Collection of four classic horror movies. In 'Frankenstein' (1931), James Whale's classic version of Mary Shelley's ghost story, scientist Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive) has become alienated from his friends and bride-to-be through his obsessive determination to create life. Frankenstein has created a monster (Boris Karloff) out of body parts acquired by his dwarfish assistant, Fritz (Dwight Frye), and succeeds in giving it life during an electrical storm. However, due to a mistake by Fritz, the creature possesses the brain of a killer, and after the dwarf torments it to breaking point Frankenstein's creation escapes and goes on the rampage, terrorising the local community. 'The Wasp Woman' (1960) stars Susan Cabot as ageing cosmetics mogul Janice Starlin, who, in an attempt to restore her fading youth, injects herself with an experimental wasp enzyme. However, the inventor of the formula, Dr. Zinthrop (Michael Mark), falls into a coma before he is able to warn Starlin of the terrible side effects of the enzyme, and before long she's buzzing around at night, attacking and devouring her enemies. In 'The Ghoul' (1934) eminent Egyptologist Professor Henry Morlant (Karloff), a believer in the death rituals of the civilisation he has dedicated his life to studying, instructs his servant to bury him with a precious stone that will bring him eternal life. However, when the stone is stolen from his body he rises from the tomb in a supernatural rage and sets out to gain revenge on the thieves. Finally, in the 1920 silent movie, 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde', based on Robert Louis Stevenson's novella, witnesses to the behaviour of the debased Mr Hyde (John Barrymore) are shocked by his depravity and bestiality. The real mystery, which baffles polite Victorian society, is why Hyde should have as his friend and protector a decent man such as Doctor Henry Jekyll (Barrymore). And why are the two gentlemen never seen together in public?
