Beginning just before his debut as Frankenstein’s creation, this new documentary compellingly explores the life and legacy of cinema legend Boris Karloff, presenting a perceptive history of the genre he personified. The pivotal star of films like Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Black Cat and many more, 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 and John Landis, all of whom and many more contribute their personal insights and anecdotes. Boris Karloff: The Man Behind the Monster takes us to the heart of the man, with a gripping, intimate portrait of Karloff and the genre he helped define.
