Sidebar: The original theatrical trailer (which was captured from a VHS dub and was sourced from an altered version for the late 1950s “Shock!” television syndication package of vintage Universal monster-horror features) is available exclusively on “Retro Junk.”
The beloved Berwyn/Chicago-based horror film host will be presenting the 1945 Universal “Inner Sanctum” mystery adaptation, “The Frozen Ghost.” Sven’s showcase starts this Sat., Dec. 2 at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central on Me-TV.
The fourth cinematic installment in Universal’s “Inner Sanctum” series was directed by Harold Young. Young also worked on the third film in Universal’s “Mummy” series, “The Mummy’s Tomb” (1943). He also directed the live-action sequences for Walt Disney’s “The Three Caballeros” (1944).
This will be Sven’s second big broadcast of Harold Young’s 1945 Universal “Inner Sanctum” feature on Me-TV. He had previously showcased “The Frozen Ghost” on Sept. 3, 2016 (the same date that the hit “Svengoolie Stomp” music video with Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon premiered)!
