on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.

Fox Horror Classics Collection, Vol. 2, another thrilling trilogy of treats from the vaults of FOX, is out on DVD. There's Dragonwyck (1946), a gothic chiller directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz (All About Eve) about a woman (Gene Tierney) who movies into a creepy mansion and comes under the spell of the mysterious head of the house (played with fiendish gusto by Vincent Price). It's a good gothic romance/mystery, with some bizarre touches. Jessica Tandy even shows up as a crippled servant. Next up is Dr. Renault’s Secret (1942), starring George Zucco as a crazed scientist experimenting on apes, which features a touching performance by J. Carrol Naish as the simian-looking servant called “Noel." And finally there's Chandu, the Magician (1932), with Bela Lugosi as a maniac out to destroy the world with a death ray.
