Based on the story by Edgar Allan Poe, Murders in the Rue Morgue is a haunting atmospheric classic starring horror icon Bela Lugosi (Dracula). Deranged scientist Dr. Mirakle (Lugosi) searches Paris for a "prospective bride" for his pet gorilla. Inviting young ladies to his sinister laboratory, he injects his victims with gorillas’ blood and then disposes of their ravaged bodies through an ingenious trapdoor. After Dr. Mirakle settles on a beautiful young woman (Sidney Fox), he kidnaps her with the intent to make her his gorilla's mate. It is now a race against time for her fiancé (Leon Waycoff) to save her. Heavily influenced by the German Expressionist classic, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, this classic favorite is the perfect blend of evolutionary science and horror.
