An all time favorite horror classic, looking forward to buying it on dvd this autumn, along with The Raven (1935). They'll both make a great Halloween double bill. Posted Image

In order of merit:


1.The Black Cat (1934) ***1/2
2.Bluebeard (1944) ***
3.Detour (1945) ***
4.The Naked Dawn (1955) **1/2 - I need to watch this again, though, as it's been some time!
5.The Strange Woman (1946) **
6.The Amazing Transparent Man (1960) *1/2


His reputation as a cult film-maker is perhaps overstated but at least the top 3 titles possess a certain haunting quality which makes them fascinating viewing. Despite his erratic career, there are quite a few vintage Ulmer films I'd be interested in watching:

The Cavern (1964)
Daughter of Dr. Jekyll (1957)
The Man From Planet X (1951)
Pirates of Capri (1949)
Ruthless (1948)
Strange Illusion (1945)
Isle of Forgotten Sins (1943)
People on Sunday (1929)
