The Raven: A spurned surgeon (Bela Lugosi) seeks revenge using Edgar Allan Poe’s devices of torture and a hideous man (Boris Karloff). The Black Cat: Stranded Budapest honeymooners follow a mad doctor (Bela Lugosi) to a black-lipped architect’s (Boris Karloff) Art Deco manor.
In The Black Cat a doctor with a fear of cats’ returns to his home town to avenge the death of his wife and daughter only to find out that his daughter is still alive. In The Raven a psychopath invites a group of people over to his house with the intention of killing them all. The picture revolves around Edgar Allan Poe’s famous homonymous poem, featuring Lugosi as a Poe-obsessed mad surgeon with a torture chamber in his basement and Karloff as a fugitive murderer desperately on the run from the police. Lugosi had the lead role, but Karloff received top billing, using only his last name.
