Boris Karloff’s legendary performance in The Mummy has become a landmark in screen history. When Egyptian mummy Im-Ho-Tep is accidentally revived after 3,700 years, it is revealed in a flashback that he was a high priest, embalmed alive for trying to revive his true love after she had been sacrificed. Brought to life once more, he sets out on an obsessive—and deadly—quest to find his lost love. In English, Arabic, and French with English subtitles.
The Wolf Man

In 1941, The Wolf Man introduced the world to a new Universal movie monster and the mythology of the werewolf was re-defined forever. Featuring a heartbreaking performance by Lon Chaney Jr. and groundbreaking make-up by Jack Pierce, this story of a cursed man who transforms into a deadly werewolf when the moon is full has not only become a masterpiece of the horror genre, but of all time.
