Unheimliche Geschichten (Tales of the Uncanny or Uncanny Stories) 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 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
