TALES OF THE UNCANNY (1932) Reviews and overview

  

Tales of the Uncanny is a 1932 German black comedy horror film directed by the prolific Austrian film director Richard Oswald, starring Paul Wegener, and produced by Gabriel Pascal. The original title is Unheimliche Geschichten and the movie is also known as Uncanny Stories.

The story is a merging of three separate short stories, Edgar Allan Poe’s The Black CatThe System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether and Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Suicide Club, set within a story frame of a reporter’s hunt for a crazy scientist. It is a black comedy revisiting many of the classic themes of the horror genre.

“The film is one of the rare examples in the German cinema of well-done black comedy.” The Aurum Film Encyclopdia: Horror
