Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Eureka Entertainment to release UNIVERSAL TERROR (Night Key, The Climax, The Black Castle), a trio of horror tales starring Boris Karloff, on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK as a part of the Eureka Classics range. Available from 18 July 2022, the first print-run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase & Collector’s Booklet.

A trio of horror tales from the vaults of Universal Pictures, all starring the iconic Boris Karloff.

In the pulse-pounding crime thriller Night Key (dir. Lloyd Corrigan, 1937), Karloff plays the eccentric inventor of a high-tech security system who is kidnapped by a gang of burglars and forced to help them commit a series of robberies. Then, in the lavishly produced The Climax (dir. George Waggner, 1944), Karloff plays the house physician at an Opera house whose insane jealousy drives him to murder. And finally, Karloff stars as a doctor who risks his own life to save the captives of a mad count in The Black Castle (dir. Nathan H. Juran, 1952).

UK debuts on home video for both Night Key and The Climax, all three films on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.
