Universal Monsters

Dracula, Frankenstein, a mummy, an invisible man and other Creatures from the Black Lagoon from Universal Studios in the 1930s will thrill festivalgoers.  Restored prints! Common to these unusual beings: a repulsive appearance, often hiding a high sensitivity, misunderstood by their contemporaries.

Retrospective made possible thanks to     Park Circus      Universal
