Screening of the 2021 documentary Boris Karloff: The Man Behind the Monster with producer Sarah Karloff.

Boris Karloff, Hollywood’s master of the macabre, in the words of those who knew him and those who were inspired by him. Beginning just before his iconic debut as Frankenstein’s creation, Boris Karloff: The Man Behind the Monster compellingly explores the life and legacy of a cinema legend, presenting a perceptive history of the genre he personified. His films were long derided as hokum and attacked by censors. But his phenomenal popularity and pervasive influence endures, inspiring some of our greatest actors and directors into the 21st Century – among them Guillermo Del Toro, Ron Perlman, Roger Corman & John Landis, all of whom contribute their personal insights and anecdotes to the film.
