Icons of Horror Boris Karloff

Icons of Horror Boris Karloff provides ad-free streaming of 12 films and TV shows in which horror icon Boris Karloff appears. Karloff is not always a major player - in Dynamite Dan, for example, he appears only briefly at the beginning and end of the film - but any true fan will want to watch all the films in which Karloff is an actor. The videos available on this channel are listed below and range from silent films of the 1920s through a low-budget Mexican horror film released in 1971.

  • The Return of Andrew Bentley (1961) - An episode from Season 2 of the TV series "Thriller" in which a white magic practitioner kills himself after securing his nephew's sworn promise to guard his body against evil spirits.
  • The Ghoul (1933) - An ancient Egyptian returns to punish those who violated his tomb.

  • Sabaka (1953) - Gunga Ram, a young Indian boy, swears vengeance on the members of a religious death cult that murdered his sister Indria and her husband and sets out with a pet tiger and a trained elephant to destroy the evil cult of Sabaka's fire shrine.

If you don't mind ads, most (if not all) of these videos are also available for free on YouTube, and on some other streaming services like Tubi. But if you plan to watch the entire roster, it's worth the one-dollar price for ad-free viewing.
